Thailand will soon witness a highly cost effective solution for its 50kg cement packaging as Mondi and Siam City Cement (SCCC) have introduced bag made from high-porosity sack kraft paper which meets the requirements for quick, dustless filling and tough handling. Moisture barriers increase product protection and shelf life while features such as handles or easy opening optimise end-user convenience.
Mondi, the primary supply partner for sack kraft paper to Holcim globally, initiated the 50 kg cement bag optimization project with SCCC in May 2010. SCCC is one of the largest cement manufacturers in South-east Asia.
Christian Skilich, CEO Kraft Paper Mondi Europe International said, “Once again we could develop an innovative solution tailor-made for the needs of our customers. The superior tensile energy absorption (TEA) and consistency of quality of our product have enabled us to set a new benchmark for this segment.”
The cement packing with a new 2-ply 80 gsm construction is being considered to be the most innovative cement bag solution in South-east Asia.
This new cement packaging has been adopted by the majority of convertors and cement producers in South East Asia for 50 kg Cement Bags.
