Big Bag Liners: What and Why?

Posted on 21 October 2019

Bulk Bags are popular in many different industries, and the food industry is no stranger to the benefits of Big Bags. However, for some products, such as very fine powders, a regular FIBC is not enough protection. That’s why they are paired with a liner. In this blog, we’ll explain a bit more about this product and the benefits it offers you.

Get more out of your FIBC

Food, mining, chemical, and pharma — FIBCs are as versatile as it gets, and there is almost nothing that can’t be transported and stored in them. Due to their flexibility, some industries tend to re-use the bags, which is not always the best idea. Being made out of polypropylene woven fabric, quality and strength can be affected over time. A liner could make a great difference and help maintain the quality of your Big Bag, but they are also used for products that need extra protection.

Always a perfect fit

Liners can be made out of different materials to suit specific needs for your applications. They can protect against contamination, moisture, and oxygen. The types of liners Masterpack provides are always tailor-made to our customers' needs and wishes, creating the best FIBC-liner combination possible. We work with the following liners:

  • Conductive
  • Aluminum
  • Anti-static dissipative
  • OPP metalized
  • EVOH
  • PA
  • HDPE

The poly liners are either inserted loosely or directly attached to the bag. Often, liners can also be made with attachment tabs that allow the liners to be sewed or glued into the bag, eliminating the chance of liner discharge.

Benefits of liners

  • Different materials for different products
  • Protect against oxygen and moisture
  • Extra barrier against contamination
  • Provide chemical resistance
  • They have anti-static properties
  • Help with safe filling and discharging
