Building & construction sector in the focus of Mondi’s interpack presence

From 04.05.–10.05.2017, the international packaging and paper group Mondi highlighted its solutions for customers in the building & construction sector at the interpack in Düsseldorf/Germany. Building and construction was one of three sectors in focus at the fair, where visitors could experience special product discovery areas including a staged construction site.

Mondi offers packaging solutions for aggregates, cement and premixes, as well as sack kraft paper solutions that feature high strength, stiffness and porosity. Beyond packaging, Mondi also provides insulation materials, building membranes, siliconized barrier films and flooring films. Some of Mondi’s solutions for building & construction are:

SplashBag is a water-resistant paper bag suitable for protecting moisture-sensitive filling goods and was developed in collaboration with cement producer LafargeHolcim. It helps prevent moisture ingress if conditions are damp or humid during storage on construction sites. Even after up to two hours of direct exposure to rain, the bag can still be moved, handled and emptied without tearing or breaking. It maintains its high tensile strength thanks to Mondi’s wet-strengthened, machine-finished Advantage Protect sack kraft paper. SplashBag absorbs less moisture than conventional paper bags while still matching them on filling speed

Advantage Semi Extensible White Print is a sack kraft paper that combines the excellent printability of calendered machine-finished grades with the strength properties of standard sack kraft papers. Strong enough to be used for 50 kg valve bags, customers in building & construction benefit from the high-quality printing and branding possibilities it offers as well as lower total package costs

Advantage Smooth White Strong is a calendered speciality kraft paper that offers high strength and good print-ability. It is used in smaller (up to 5 kg) bags, e.g. Knauf-branded bags, to package building materials typically used by consumers for do-it-yourself projects
