The Baffle bag also very popularly known as the Q-Bag is a wonder in the
FIBC industry. The bag is made in a manner to provide most cost
effective solution for Bulk Packaging. The making of the bag is such
that it gives a considerable benefit to the user while transporting and
storing the Bulk material.
• General benefits of a Baffle/Q-bags:
o Prevent the sides of the Bulk bag from bulging
o Bag remains a square instead of having a circular foot print
o Cost effective in transportation and storage
o Less Packaging, Transport, Storage, Handling & Administration
o Improved stability of the packaging, enabling more safety stacking
o Better overall visual effect
Baffle bags are made with various ways of filling the bulk material
depending on the kind of industry.
• Open top
• Spout top
• Duffle top
The material may be discharged from the Baffle bags through a spout at
the bottom, which may have a “Star closure” or a “Pyjama closure”.
• Closed bottom (without discharge)
• Spout discharge
Spout discharge may also be with a B-lock, a special locking system that
enables the spout to stay intact and bear the extra load of the bulk
material in the FIBC.
The Baffle bag is a much better cost effective solution as compared to
the normal FIBC and results in almost 20% cost saving for the end user.
Starting from the manufacturer’s point, when it is filled with the bulk
material to when the end user empty the bag, it helps in better
transportation, handling and storage of the bulk material and is
definitely a unique way of handling it. The Q-bag is one of its kinds
and can not be substituted in a better way by any other bulk handling
