Packing

According to the type of cement Dyckerhoff well cements are available in the following types of packing:

Bulk:

  • Pickup and dispatch in silo trucks up to the customer (DAP) or FAS* seaport
  • Mainly for deliveries within Central Europe

1.5 t Big Bags:

  • Preferred packing for overseas exports
  • Consisting of an outer woven carrier bag of polypropylene (PP) and a watertight inner foil of polyethylene (PE) for actual protection of the product against moisture and air.
  • Resistant to UV radiation* and providing a tensile strength of 5:1 minimum according to ISO 10426-1/API Spec 10A, Section 12

    * The carrier bags, lifting loops and sewing yarns used for the Dyckerhoff Big Bag are UV stabilized and tested according to the latest applicable standards. However, we highly recommend to always store the big bags covered e. g. under a roof or under a canvas or plastic cover.

We use robust i. e. transport- and field-proven Big Bags having one single lifting loop as an integral part of the carrier bag. A single lifting loop makes handling easier, quicker and much safer than for instance using four lifting loops.

The Dyckerhoff Big Bag is a joint development with our suppliers based on decades of experience with world-wide exports of well cements even to regions with difficult climatic conditions. Due to increased UV-stability and special reinforcement this Big Bag is well known as "Dyckerhoff Desert Big Bag".

Small bags:

  • 50 kg: 6 layers, 5 x high-quality paper layers + 1 x LDPE foil
  • 25 kg: 3 layers, 2 x high-quality paper layers + 1 x LDPE foil
