Starlinger has launched AD*STAR *carry sacks, which come with handles to make it easier to carry products such as cement, ready-mix concrete and fertilizer. The sacks are made of polypropylene tape fabric and are designed in the typical AD*STAR block bottom shape. Additionally, the sacks have a pair of punched handles on the top of the bag that lie flat, but easily open to provide a comfortable grip for easy carrying.
The AD*STAR *carry sacks hold filling quantities from 10 kg to 50 kg and can be used for packaging a wide range of dry bulk goods destined for wholesale and retail sale, e.g. construction materials, chemicals or animal feed. The use of woven polypropylene means that the sacks have a high strength with a low package weight, provide excellent barrier properties and product protection, and allow attractive styling with print or OPP lamination. They are easy and economical to produce, and can be produced in a large variety of sizes and styles. Additionally, they have low raw material consumption and do not require reinforcing like paper bags.
AD*STAR *carry sacks are produced on the ad*star KON SX and SX+ conversion lines supplied by Austrian Starlinger & Co. Ges.m.b.H. The special handle patches are manufactured in a preparatory process and welded onto the sack top during the conversion process in the line – no adhesives or seams are required. Existing AD*STAR sack conversion lines can be easily adapted to the production of AD*STAR *carry sacks.
