Anti-Static and Conductive Bulk Bags / FIBCs
Our static dissipative / anti-static bulk bags and conductive bulk bags are for use in environments where combustible gases, dust or vapours are present due to the high risk of electrostatic charge build up that develops within a standard bulk bag / FIBC whilst it is being filled and or discharged.
In order to eliminate this risk the use of our Type C conductive bulk bag or Type D static dissipative / anti-static bulk bag is essential.
Type C Conductive Bulk Bags
Type C conductive bulk bags / FIBCs are manufactured using non-conductive polypropylene fabric that are interwoven with conductive threads that when connected via a grounding point, earths the bag and dispels electrostatic charge build ups.
Type C conductive bulk bags may be used where combustible dusts and flammable atmosphere with MIE of 3mJ or less is present.
It is important to understand that manual intervention is required to ensure Type C conductive bulk bags have been interconnected and grounded when filling and discharging.
Type D Static Dissipative / Anti-Static Bulk Bags
Type D static dissipative / anti-static bulk bags are manufactured from static dissipative and anti-static material that eliminates static build up without the need to interconnect and ground the bulk bag through a process known as the coronal-effect.
Type D static dissipative / anti-static bulk bags may be used where combustible dusts and flammable atmosphere with MIE of 3mJ or less is present.

Option 5 – Liners
Liners are available to use within all bulk bags and are used to prevent outside moisture contamination. Liners can be applied to bulk bags by either loose insertion, sewn in or glued to the outer bag.
Option 6 – Fabric Type:
- Uncoated – breathable woven polypropylene fabric, allows air and water flow.
- Coated – laminated with a polypropylene film, used to prevent moisture intrusion and sifting of the contents.
Option 7 – Coloured Fabric:
If you’re wanting your building bags to stand out from the crowd or want to identify product content by the colour of your bag then having a bag made from a fabric in any colour of your choice as an alternative to the standard white fabric is a fantastic solution.
Option 8 – Safe Working Load (SWF):
Depending on what the content is you’re filling your bag with you can choose from a safe working load between 250kg right up to 2000kg.
Option 9 – Safety Factor (SF):
- 5:1 (Single Trip) – This option is for bags that are only intended to be used once only.
- 6:1 (Multi Trip) – If you are looking to re-use your bag than this is the safest option.
Option 10 – Colour Printing Service:
Our printing service is available on all our builder’s bags, so if you’re for a high impact, cost effective marketing solution for your business Jimpex UK Packaging can provide printed builder’s bags with up to 4 colours on 1 to 4 sides.
Whether it’s a standard or bespoke builder’s bag that you’re looking for Jimpex UK Packaging builder’s bags are all made to the highest standards using only the best materials and are fully certified by independent industry recognised test houses.
* Please note that our manufacturing lead time on bespoke & printed builder’s bags are usually 12 – 13 weeks.
** Minimum volume apply for our bespoke & colour printing service
