Water-repellent Splashbag gains traction in several markets around the world


Water-repellent paper bag Splashbag, created by Austria-based Mondi Industrial Bags along with cement producer LafargeHolcim, has gained traction in several other markets around the world following its launch in Europe.

Splashbag was launched in 2015 for the protection of moisture-sensitive filling goods, such as building materials, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals.

Based on Mondi’s Advantage Protect sack kraft paper, the bag can also be used in the packaging of materials that are frequently exposed to wet conditions or environments.

"We are currently working on further improvements that will extend the water resistance of Spashbag."

Advantage Protect provides a water-repellent surface and wet tensile strength to Splashbag, enabling it to maintain high-performance in wet environments.

Mondi Industrial Bags Sales and Marketing director Claudio Fedalto said: “With a broad range of industrial bags optimised for high-speed filling lines and multiple closing options, Mondi can provide its dynamic customers with the right tools to ensure global market success.

“We are currently working on further improvements that will extend the water resistance of Spashbag and will exceed the markets’ expectations in terms of the bags’ strength and shelf-appeal.”

Mondi’s integrated supplier Mondi Kraft Paper was also involved in the development of Spashbag.
