Best-in-class puncture resistance
Several paper grades with high puncture resistance
Packaging materials are subjected to puncture hazards at the time of filling, handling and transit. Especially sharp- edged products such as screws, rice, pasta, almonds, etc. can cause puncture from the inside when moved or shaken. If punctures occur, the contents are exposed to external factors such as air, moisture, bacteria, pressure and friction. This can impair the quality of the packed goods.
So far, a good puncture resistance was mainly associated with plastics and thicker cardboards, but not anymore! With current trends in end consumer behaviour, growing eCommerce and current legislations in mind, the future of packaging will be even more intrinsically linked to paper.
By offering paper grades with high puncture resistance, we are changing the landscape and are responding to the current trends, customer needs and the diverse requirements of modern packaging in terms of filling, transport, storage, appearance and sustainability. As a result of our continuous R&D efforts, we currently have several paper grades with the highest puncture resistance values in our portfolio. All of them work for food and non-food applications and are made entirely from fresh fibre. Tests performed by the University of Tampere in Finland showed that Mondi’s grades outperformed other market solutions in terms of puncture resistance.
Our paper grades stick out – your sharp-edged goods will not!
