“Now, with the shared passion for innovation of SCCC’s and Mondi’, another development has been successfully implemented: a 2-ply 70 gsm ‘Advantage Select’ sack kraft paper for all 40 kg cement bags,” explained Clemens Stockreiter, CEO Mondi Kraft Paper Europe & International. Mondi and SCCC have introduced a bag made from high-porosity sack kraft paper which meets the requirements for quick, dustless filling and tough handling.
“The new two-ply 70 gsm construction is considered to be the most cost-effective and best performing 40 kg cement bag solution in South-East Asia and provides SCCC with a range of benefits throughout the supply chain”, explained Gerry Gosen, Managing Director Mondi Packaging Paper Sales Asia.
SCCC, 35 % owned by Holcim, is one of the largest cement manufacturers in South-East Asia, with the capacity to pack 15 000 tons per day of bagged cement. Mondi’s sack kraft paper grade Advantage Select has been used to successfully implement new 2-ply constructions throughout the Holcim group. Two-ply highly porous bags manufactured from Advantage Select are lighter and stronger and deliver cost savings to both the bag manufacturer and cement producer. Advantage Select sack kraft paper has been adopted by the majority of manufacturers and cement producers in South-East Asia.
