SAFE WORKING LOAD (SWL)
SWL is the amount of load, (in pounds or kilograms), which a bag is designed to carry.
 
SAFETY FACTOR (SF)
An industry standard requiring an FIBC to handle five or six times its Safe Working Load.
 
SEAMS
An industry standard requiring an FIBC to handle five or six times its Safe Working Load.

Standard – Used for applications where sift-proofing is not required.

Single Filler Cord – Cording used to prevent product sifting.

Double Filler Cord – Double cording used to prevent product sifting.

Triple Filler Cord – Double cording and felt used to prevent product sifting.

FABRIC TYPE
Breathable - Uncoated or non-laminated fabric, ideal for products requiring air permeability. Ideal for agricultural products such as peanuts or pecans.

Uncoated - Standard woven polypropylene fabric that is not coated with polypropylene film.

Coated - Woven polypropylene fabric that is coated with a layer of polypropylene film. A coated bag incorporates an interior or exterior layer of film to reduce moisture intrusion or sifting of the contents. Also called Non-breathable or laminated fabric/bags.

Type A - Standard woven polypropylene fabric. No static protection provided. Safe for transporting NON-FLAMMABLE products. Flammable materials or gases MAY NOT be present outside of the bag.

Type B - Standard woven polypropylene fabric with low breakdown voltage designed to prevent “Sparks” and “Propagating Brush Discharges”. Safe for transporting FLAMMABLE products. Flammable materials or gases MAY NOT be present outside of the bag.

Type C - Conductive fabric designed to control electrostatic charges by grounding. Type C fabric contains static dissipative conductive threads or tapes which are electrically interconnected. Safe for transporting FLAMMABLE products. Flammable materials or gases MAY be present outside of the bag. Type C FIBCs MUST BE GROUNDED during filling and discharge.

Type D - Anti-static fabric to control discharge incendivity without grounding. Safe for transporting FLAMMABLE products. Flammable materials or gases MAY be present outside of the bag. Type D FIBCs are NOT REQUIRED TO BE GROUNDED during filling and discharge.
