What is a plastic intermediate bulk container?
Also, called IBC tanks, plastic IBCs or IBC plastic water tanks, IBC containers are plastic intermediate bulk containers designed to store 1000L of hazardous or non-hazardous liquids or solvents. IBC containers are commonly used by remote operators, such as mining companies, farming communities or refueling suppliers. IBC tanks or plastic IBCs effectively store and transport bulk liquid.
Plastic IBCs provide major cost and environmental savings, as well as meeting all quality control measures for the storage of hazardous and non-hazardous bulk liquids.

Benefits of using an intermediate bulk container for storage
Since our plastic IBCs are designed to be stored both horizontally and vertically, they not only provide safe and secure storage of hazardous and non-hazardous bulk liquids and solvents, but they also save space. Their tight cubical shape and 4-way forklift entry points make them easy to move, stack and transport.
Constructed from high-density polyethylene or heavy-duty UV stabilized linear low-density polyethylene with an external galvanised steel protective cage, our plastic IBCs are reusable, lightweight, safe and reliable, as well as easy to fill and discharge.
