How are IBCs Used in Construction?

Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) optimize the shipping of both solid and liquid products. This proves highly useful in the construction industry, where IBC tanks ship and store dyes and heavy-duty adhesives while IBC tanks carry powdered or granulated goods.

What Kinds of IBCs Benefit Construction?

IBCs are broken into two categories: rigid and flexible. Rigid IBCs are made of a bottle inside a wireframe and are equipped with a cap and spout to keep them watertight while allowing for controlled pouring. Flexible IBCs are made of woven polyethylene plastic and are suited for carrying solids that flow, such as powdered plaster.

Rigid IBCs in Construction

Rigid IBCs are highly versatile due to variations in designs and materials. The tanks can be customized with steel-lined or fully steel bottles for hazardous materials. Rigid IBCs carry everything from the liquids needed in the construction process to the water workers drink on-site.

Flexible IBCs in Construction

FIBC totes first gained popularity in Europe during the 1970s when they were used to ship massive amounts of concrete powder to the Middle East and the oil fields. Currently, the bags are used to ship everything from bulk supplies to debris, and specialty linings minimize static and help keep hazardous dust inside the containers.
