Requirements for Type-D FIBCs according IEC 61340-4-4:2018

FIBCs:   Type-D FIBCs shall not cause any ignition in a series of 200 ignition attempts and shall be constructed from fabrics having an electrical breakdown voltage of less than 6000 V.
Liners:   There is only 1 type of liner suitable for Type-D FIBCs:
  Type L2: The surface resistivity of both surfaces shall be between 1.0 x 109 Ω and 1.0 x 1012 Ω (no measurements of a breakdown voltage required).
    If the surface resistivity of one surface is between 1.0 x 109 Ω and 1.0 x 1012 Ω and of the other surface higher than 1.0 x 1012 Ω then in addition, a breakdown voltage of less than 4000 V is required.
Labels / Pockets:  Labels and document pockets greater than 100 cm² shall be subjected to ignition testing.


Yellow electrostatic label required for Type-D FIBCs

Important hint:

This yellow label as well as SWL-labels and document pockets may cause hazards if they are not meeting the electrostatic requirements mentioned above. Therefore the FIBC samples for testing must be equipped with suitable labels and document pockets, otherwise certification is not possible.
