Bitumen packing has been a controversial subject among traders, environmentalists and governments for a long time. Each packing has several pros and cons and its specifications, including dimension, cost. Shipping and transition procedure also vary with each packing type. New steel drums, bulk and jumbo bags are common packages worldwide. Jumbo bags, also known as poly bags and bitu-bags, have become very popular recently. Wataniya bitumen jumbo bags has been a pioneer in the industry for a long time. They are available in weights of 1 ton and 300 km. The weight depends on the customer’s request and demand.
Jumbo bag’s popularity has happened due to a certain couple of reasons:
Despite new steel drums, Wataniya bitumen jumbo bags are pretty economical. First, it is about container contamination. Jumbo bag does not pollute the container; therefore, you do not need to order a special truck for bitumen. You can transport it with ordinary trucks and vessels. Jumbo bags that are secured with a steel cage or a wooden pallet easily fit the containers and the vessel.
The second factor is easy storage. You can keep the Wataniya bitumen jumbo bag anywhere that is cool and out of the sunlight.
Jumbo bags and new steel drums are more economical. They do not pollute the container; therefore, ordinary trucks and vessels will do the delivery then they can pick up other parcels. Moreover, storing is much cheaper because any standard warehouse is suitable.
Jumbo bag is an environmental-friendly package. It is 100% consumable and recyclable. The constructors tear the first layer then throw bitumen and the second layer of the package in the heater. The second layer melts with the bitumen and it usually increases the quality of the final bitumen. The first layer may be recycled into cheap tote bags or other stuff. Accordingly, jumbo bags have zero waste on the construction site. On the contrary, 3% to 5% of the bitumen sticks to the drums while discharging.
Some countries, such as Australia, have also provided certain rules against new steel drums due to the environmental footprints. Therefore, Australian traders normally take jumbo bags or bitutainers.
