If you work with FIBC bulk bags in your business, it’s important to know the different bulk bag liner types you have the option of working with. Your bags may be made of breathable fabric, meaning they are uncoated or non-laminated, or they may be coated bags, which means they are covered with polyethylene to keep the product in place and resist moisture.
Making sure your FIBC bulk bags are properly lined can go a long way toward protecting your product as much as possible. If lost or wasted product is a cost of your business, the right lined FIBC bulk bags can make a huge difference to your bottom line.
Bulk Bag Liners Explained
Here is the basic information you need on the different types of bulk bag liners. There are two basic bulk bag liner styles to know. They are:
- Tube Liner: The tube liner is the basic polyethylene bulk bag liner. It has no spouts or contours. It is just a straight cylinder that is glued, sewn or tabbed into the FIBC bulk bag. Tubular liners are popular because they are an inexpensive way to protect your product from sifting and moisture.
- Form-Fitted Liner: Form-fitted liners are a more deliberately designed type of bulk bag liner. Because of their flat top and bottom and spout diameter and length made to match the FIBC’s spouts, you get more complete filling and discharging of your product. The spouts can be heat sealed closed for added protection of your product.
Like tube liners, these can be glued, sewn or tabbed into the FIBC bulk bag. These FIBC bulk bag liners are customizable with barrier and anti-static features in standard and co-extruded polyethylene.
