Mondi's Splashbag paper-based solution gains worldwide recognition

Published 17 July 2017

Mondi Industrial Bags' Splashbag paper-based solution, which was successfully launched in Europe, is now receiving global recognition.

The new paper-based solution, which was created in partnership with LafargeHolcim, can be used for the protection of moisture-sensitive filling goods such as building materials, chemicals and pharmaceuticals.

The Splashbag has been developed to deal with materials, which are regularly exposed to wet conditions or environments.

Mondi`s Advantage Protect sack kraft paper was used to develop the solution, which enables to maintain high strength even in wet environments

According to the company, the fully recyclable water- repellent solution provides increased wet strength, while matching the filling speed of standard paper bags.

The new solution will allow to handle and store without difficulty even after a few hours of direct exposure to rain or moisture ingress.

Mondi Industrial Bags sales and marketing director Claudio Fedalto said: “With a broad range of industrial bags optimized for high-speed filling lines and multiple closing options, Mondi can provide its dynamic customers with the right tools to ensure global market success.

“We are currently working on further improvements that will extend the water resistance of SPASHBAG and will exceed the markets’ expectations in terms of the bags’ strength and shelf-appeal. Stay tuned for more details how our World Tour progresses.”

In June, Mondi Industrial Bags showcased paper-based bag solutions at the RosUpack 2017 event in Moscow, Russia.

The firm exhibited various paper-based bag solutions, which can be used in food, feed and seed applications. Mondi’s bag solutions will protect sensitive powdery filling goods and extend product shelf life.
