Lay-Flat Polyethylene Liners
Lay flat polyethylene liners are the most common type of liners. They are cylindrical in shape, open at the top, and the bottom is often heat sealed. If the liner is heat sealed it must be cut to discharge the product. Lay-Flat polyethylene liners can come already inserted in the bag or can be purchased by the roll.
Form-Fit Polyethylene Liners
Form-fit polyethylene liners are specifically designed to take the exact form of the bag including the spout inlet and outlet. Form-fit liners improve the bags performance and protect the product packed from contamination during processing, storage, and transportation.
These liners also allow for a consistent fill and discharge of products because they do not have folds, pleats or other traps to slow down product flow. These liners can either be permanently attached to the bag or easily removed after each use.
Baffle Polyethylene Liners
The form-fit baffle design can provide superior package performance and, at times, reduce storage and shipping costs. The baffle liner is form fitted to the FIBC and makes use of internal baffles to maintain a square shape and prevent bulging of the bag. The square shape of baffle poly liners can also help save space on pallets and in trucks. Some other features of baffle liners include:
Aluminum Foil Liners
Form shaped aluminum liners, also known as foil liners, improve filling, discharging, handling and stability of the outside of the bag. Foil liners offer great moisture, oxygen, and UV protection and are compatible with a wide variety of bulk bags.
FIBC foil liners are made of aluminum-laminated films that protect the quality and the integrity of the product that is packed in the bag. Each foil liner can be manufactured using various aluminum compounds depending on the specific needs of each application. Some other features of foil liners include:
