Requirements related to the packaging of dangerous goods are strictly regulated. A framework has been set by the UN Subcommittee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods to protect the safety of people, the natural environment and properties.
Paktainer offers BIG BAGS constructed to meet all obligatory UN regulations.
We are able to design client specific UN BIG BAGS in terms of working loads, dimensions and other factors. Please contact our sales team if you need more information about Paktainer UN BIG BAGS.
Every FIBC for dangerous goods needs to be marked in a specific, visible and permanent manner. Please see the example below.
|UN symbol||Type of big bag construction||Packaging group||Production date||Code of country||Certifying body||Code of producer and specific FIBC||Stacking test weight in kg||Maximum gross weight of safe working load in kg|
|13H1 - Uncoated fabric with liner
13H2 - Coated fabric with no liner
13H3 - Uncoated fabric with liner
13H4 - Coated fabric with liner
|Y - designated for packaging group II and III
Z - designated for packaging group III
In order to issue UN codes for BIG BAGS, the Certifying Body needs to conduct tests and confirm that BIG BAGs have passed 6 types of tests:
- Top lift tests
- Stacking test
- Drop test
- Topple test
- Righting test
- Tear test
