Mondi Industrial Bags, in collaboration with LafargeHolcim, has created SPLASHBAG – a paper-based solution designed deal with materials that are often exposed to wet conditions or environments. The product has been developed in direct response to the packaging needs of the customer, and is suitable for the protection of moisture-sensitive filling goods, including building materials, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals. Having successfully launched in Europe, the product is now gaining traction in markets around the world.
Based on Mondi’s Advantage Protect sack kraft paper, the bag maintains high strength, even in wet conditions. Within the last year, SPLASHBAG has gained global recognition, and the key to its success lies in its enhanced sack kraft paper properties, absorbing less moisture than conventional paper bags and maintaining both integrity and product quality.
As a result, the fully recyclable water- repellent solution offers increased wet strength while matching the filling speed of standard paper bags. Even after a few hours of direct exposure to rain, or moisture ingress, it can still be handled and stored without difficulty. This way it significantly reduces bag breakage rates, leading to genuine cost savings through reduced waste, lower vehicle and site clean-up costs and time savings for logistics and site managers.
Claudio Fedalto, Sales & Marketing Director, Mondi Industrial Bags, commented: “With a broad range of industrial bags optimised 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.”
