Bag Application Centre

To ensure we fulfil customer requirements for industrial bags, we research and test our packaging solutions in our customers' own processes.

Our Bag Application Centre conducts full-scale tests of bag filling and handling and evaluates bag performance under the expected environmental conditions. By testing before we deliver, we help customers create the best possible solutions to meet their needs. 

Rigorous testing

At our Bag Application Centre, our application engineering team analyses the bags’ strength, de-aeration properties as well as behaviour during filling and different storage conditions. To test the bag constructions, we perform simulations of specific situations using state-of-the-art technology.

  • Air permeability test
  • Filling behaviour test
  • Determining the force exerted by filling goods
  • Strength test
  • Climate simulation

Co-operation with our customers

  • Together, we optimise sack kraft paper to achieve improved strength and de-aeration.
  • Based on your needs, we optimise your bag’s construction for improved filling properties and product protection.
  • Working with our customers, we optimise filling processes to ensure efficient filling and increased productivity.

‘Bag to nature’ with Mondi’s Terra Bag®

The world's first biodegradable industrial bag with humidity protection and certified compostability. A revolutionary approach for sustainable waste management of industrial bags, the Terra Bag® was developed in close collaboration with the French cement producer Ciment Calcia (Italcementi Group) the extruder Barbier and agricultural seed producer, and Mondi customer Limagrain.
