Mondi Industrial Bags has rolled out its newest version of its celebrated SplashBag. The newest SplashBag’s rain resistance has tripled to up to six hours compared to the one released in 2015. It also prevents moisture ingress for up to five days.
“We have introduced a new industry standard here for paper bags to benefit our customers,” said Claudio Fedalto, sales and marketing director, Mondi Industrial Bags. “Workers can now store their cement sacks in damp environments for a whole working week without worrying about the materials getting wet.”
SplashBag is designed to absorb less moisture than conventional bags. Its outer ply of Mondi Advantage Protect sack kraft paper has a water-repellent surface and is formulated to keep high-tensile strength even in a wet environment. It also helps prevent moisture ingress if conditions are damp or humid during storage.
Extensive testing at Mondi’s Bag Application Center has resulted in the performance upgrade. A series of Cobb60 tests was conducted by the company to measure water absorption and the results show a 30 percent reduction compared to standard sack kraft paper. These improvements offer even lower breakage rates and help logistics and site managers save time and costs thanks to reduced wastage and shorter clean-ups.
“The improved SplashBag provides customers with the necessary tools for market success. Mondi’s Industrial Bags customers and suppliers alike can rely upon the company’s long-standing expertise in – and passion for – innovative, sustainable and customer-focused paper packaging solutions that guarantee a high level of reliability and quality,” said Fedalto.
SplashBag is available as 25-kg and 35-kg bags, and is particularly suitable for the construction industry.
