The bag belongs to Mondi’s next generation of water-repellent bags, developed as part of the company’s focus on exciting new solutions achieved through ongoing R&D work and collaboration with customers.
The HYBRIDPRO is a bag with an outer ply made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) film. It is mainly used in the cement and building materials industries, combining the best of both worlds: it offers all the protective advantages of a plastic bag, yet is fillable on conventional paper bag filling systems.
The bag’s outer HDPE ply – which forms the barrier against rain, moisture and dust – provides for an attractive and modern appearance. The HDPE film can be printed in up to eight colours, including on the bottom patches, for a glossy, premium look, and the paper ply is available in a bleached or an unbleached version.
Furthermore, the HYBRIDPRO bag allows high-speed filling, with deaeration twice as fast as with a standard three-ply bag (35 m3/h versus 18 m3/h tested on Mega Gurley equipment at Mondi’s Bag Application Centre in Austria). Since the bag can be filled on conventional high-speed filling systems, no investment in expensive filling equipment is required.
Mondi’s HYBRIDPRO is a high-quality packaging solution conceived for high-quality contents. It is particularly suitable for building materials, including gypsum and cement, as well as many other moisture-sensitive products. Moreover, it is an eco-friendly solution: the total grammage of material used is less than with standard three-ply designs used for the same purpose. Last but not least, the plastic and paper components are easy to separate, for optimum recyclability.
