FIBC containers are used in a number of industries that need to transport or store large quantities of products. Sturdiness and flexibility are two distinct features of these industrially advanced containers. Industrial sectors, like agriculture, chemical, pharmaceutical, pet food, and metal and mining industries, have a high demand for FIBC bags.
Since goods produced by these industries are in gigantic quantities, an FIBC is paired with a bag poly liner, thus strengthening the bag. The application of FIBC Liners is to enable companies to securely store or transport large quantities of fine powder or perishable items. Industries can also call for detachable liners, which can be tied, glued or sewed to the bag. These liners are compatible with spout top as well as duffer top bags. There are four kinds of widely used liners, customized according to usage.
1. Form-Fit Liners
High protection form-fit liners are one of the most common liners used for storage and transportation. It is designed to adapt to the size of the bag. The oxygen barrier and the moisture resistant quality of these bags protect the products in the bag from contamination. It is also chemical resistant and thus protects the product from any other damage.
Another advantage of form-fit liners is that they allow for convenient and consistent filling and discharge of products. This is because such liners do not come with pleats, folds or other traps that would cause any hurdle to the flow of the product. The form-fit liners are detachable or can be permanently attached to the bag. The application of form-fit FIBC liners is quite common in a number of industries.
2. Aluminium Foil Liners
Foil liners or aluminium foil lines provide UV protection, are moisture-resistant and allow oxygen to flow in. They can be customized to a variety of bags. This is one of the most stable FIBC liners, and they are also known to improve filling, discharging and safe handling of goods. Foil liners can also be manufactured using different materials. Aluminium foil liners are built using different aluminium compounds as suitable for different applications.
3. Baffle Liners
One type of FIBC liner is the baffle liner. The USP of this liner is that it reduces the shipping costs, gives high-end package performance, and also lessens storage costs. Apart from providing increased stability, it also enhances bag stackability. Square in shape, this liner utilizes internal baffles to maintain its shape. The application of FIBC liners is essential in the transport and storage of goods. The square-shaped liners also reduce the amount of space taken by the bags, which means the added quantity of bags can be fit in a smaller place. It can hold up to 30 per cent more product than any other liners.
4. Lay-Flat Liners
The lay-flat liners are cylindrically designed with an opening at the top. The bottom of this liner is sealed with heat. This means in order to get the product out of the bag, the liner has to be cut open. Designed by experts, the lay-flat liners contain oxygen barriers, moisture protection, anti-static properties and are resistant to harmful chemicals.
These FIBC liners can be used for various activities, depending on the industry. It is easily fit into an FIBC bag and be carried around without taking up much space. Some liners can be purchased in a role while others are sold separately.
