Food grade bags
- are made with resins meeting FDA standards to be used for food purposes. Food grade bags are manufactured in a clean room facility and can be certified by a food safety standard like SQF, AIB and/or BRC. A food grade bag which has been manufactured by a facility that has been audited and is certified by a food safety standard like the American Institute of Baking(AIB), Safe Quality Foods(SQF), or British Retail Consortium(BRC) or others, is considered a certified food grad bag. Our bags are made of resin which meets the FDA food grade requirements.
UN rated bags -
are put through a series of rigorous tests such as, drop test, topple test, and top lift test. The testing is executed by an independent testing facility. Once the bag is UN certified, each bag will be asigned a specific UN number identifying that specific bag. The UN certification usually lasts for one year, or otherwise specified by the testing house, some will certify longer.
Multi-trip bags -
Most bags are designed with a 5:1 safety factor, meaning the bag is rated to hold 5 times the amount of the bags safe working load. A 5:1 is intended for single use bags. 6:1 bags are designed for multi-uses only.
Chemical bags -
used to transport chemicals.
Conductive or static dissipative bags (Anti-static) -
the difference in the two is the flow of the electrical resistance. Conductive bags allow the electrons to flow easily across the bag and charges go to the ground or another conductive object. Static dissipative bags allow the electrons to move slower and more controlled through the antistatic fabric, reducing the charge.
Valve bags or liquid bags - allow liquid to be stored or transported easily. Valve bags are equipped with a valve port for releasing the liquids in a controlled manner.
