Masterpack for mining and metals

Posted on 23 March 2020

When it comes to the mining and mineral industry, safety is a big concern. Here at Masterpack, we understand the demands for this heavy industry. What questions come up when choosing FIBCs for the mining and mineral industry, and how do we answer them?

Heavy-weight products call for high-performance packaging

It’s challenging to find flexible bulk containers that can safely carry the weight of rocks, metals, and ores. Materials like these push the limits of bulk packaging, and only the most well-made bags that won’t rip can hold up to the pressure. But it is not just the weight - the abrasive nature of metals and rocks wears down and can rip weaker materials, making it a safety risk - from filling to transportation.

Hence, a mining-friendly bag should be made from heavier fabric that provides unparalleled strength and is resistant to tears and punctures. We offer a broad range of packaging solutions and can offer you tailor-made big bags that have been tested and proven to hold up in mining sites.

Safety first

The right packaging does not only protect the product against chemical or physical damage and contaminations but also helps in the preservation of the mineral quality. Additionally, it should minimize the risk of human and environmental safety issues and ensure compliance with all required legal regulations. Benefit from our expertise in mining and mineral packaging for your specific needs. We have the knowledge and testing facilities to make sure that we find the safest packaging for your business.
