Chemical manufacturers have in-depth safety guidelines to ensure that their employees and the handlers of their products are protected. These guidelines also need to include transportation and storage methods, as well as appropriate containers in which the chemicals will be carried. Bulk bags are the ideal solution in this regard.

They can be used for the storage, transportation and disposal of various chemicals, such as fertilizers, without being compromised. Custom Bulk Bags are made from woven polypropylene (PP) tapes and, as such, are incredibly durable and inert to many chemicals. We can also fit inner linings to our bags that protect the PP fabric from harsh materials or create a waterproof container for dry chemicals that are water-soluble.

Whether a chemical producer needs to store organic minerals or hazardous substances, they need to use sturdy, reliable and durable packaging that can prevent contamination and injury to handlers. Custom Bulk Bags meets these requirements and our products come with a minimum safety factor of 5:1, which means that they can safely hold at least five times their intended load without breaking.

How much can a Custom Bulk Bag hold?

PP is a highly resistant polymer with great safety characteristics. It is heat-resistant and does not react with many chemical substances, including mild acids and bases. PP is also able to withstand static charges which minimises the risk of fire and explosions when discharging the bags

What’s more, the weaving process makes the fabric tough and strong; our products are designed to carry up to two tonnes of material. We offer various optional extras that improve the safety of the bulk bags during filling, storage and discharge. These include spout tops, sealable tops, whole bottom discharges and splash-proof coatings. 

These additional attachments are intended to prevent spillage, leakage and wastage of chemicals at all stages of transportation and delivery. If you’re unsure of what optional extras to choose, we are happy to provide expert guidance and lead you to the perfect bulk storage solution for your needs
