Type D Bulk Bags

FIBC Type D bags are constructed from fabrics with static dissipative properties or threads to control fire-starting of discharges regardless of whether it's electrically grounded or ungrounded. FIBC Type D bags do not require grounding or earthing because they are made from static protective fabric designed to safely prevent the occurrence of incendiary sparks, brush discharges and propagating brush discharges.
