In August 2010 Mondi and Siam City Cement (SCCC) successfully implemented a high porous bag construction for 50 kg cement packaging in Thailand.
This two-ply 80gsm construction for 50kg cement bags then became the benchmark throughout Southeast Asia.
“Now, with SCCC’s and Mondi’s shared passion for innovation another development has been successfully implemented: a two-ply 70gsm ’Advantage Select’ sack kraft paper for all 40kg cement bags,’ explains 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 70gsm construction is considered to be the most cost-effective and best performing 40kg cement bag solution in Southeast Asia and provides SCCC with a range of benefits throughout the supply chain’, explained Gerry Gosen, Managing Director Mondi Packaging Paper Sales Asi
