Mondi’s new lightweight paper grade, Advantage StretchWrap, can stretch and resist puncture when used for wrapping pallets in order to protect goods during transport. Currently a multi-layer difficult-to-recycle plastic film is used for pallet wrapping, which makes the choice of switching to a responsibly sourced renewable material the new market standard.
The paper has an outstanding stretch and high-tensile strength, even in the low grammage of 70 gsm, making it a reliable lightweight wrapping solution for products transported on pallets. It has been tested and passed the compression holding force test according to EUMOS standard, which means that the pallets can be safely transported.
We have commissioned an independent life cycle assessment (LCA) comparing our Advantage StretchWrap paper to conventional plastic stretch film. The ISO-based approach shows that the new paper pallet packaging performs better in several environmental impact categories including climate change.
Would you like to know more about Advantage StretchWrap and its environmental impact? Are you wondering how does our paper perform compared to plastic stretch film?
If the answer is yes, then have a quick glance on the LCA results. You can download our info package with the executive summary of the study and our infographic or watch our webinar (platform registration needed).
Advantage StretchWrap is made with Nordic fibres - famous for their strength and quality - that are sustainably sourced and from renewable sources to ensure that the material supply is truly renewable. The paper is made with 100% fresh fibres and it can be recycled at the end of its life almost everywhere around the world, since the paper recycling process is a quite common recycling method and anyone knows where to dispose paper packaging for recycling. In Europe the recycling average rate of paper and cardboard is 82,3% according to Eurostat.

The innovative paper wrapping systems are a game changer for those who want to switch to recyclable and renewable materials while transporting their products from point A to point B. They offer a renewable alternative to tertiary packaging and reduce the reliance on plastic.
To be able to bring the paper wrapping solution to market and make it a reality for our customers, we have partnered with ACMI, the italian machine producer that offers bottling and packaging solutions, to develop a highly performing wrapping machine for our paper.The machine due to its SCARA robotic technology designed by ACMI, replaces the existing film wrappers in the market without any issue, which is a concern of plant and operation managers.
We collaborated with Austrian mechanical engineering company EW Technology to launch a machine for paper pallet wrapping that is more efficient and sustainable on small-to-medium production lines.
The close collaboration led to the design of the innovative machine, which fills a gap Mondi identified in the paper wrapping market. Offering two settings, the machine can be fully automated to wrap up to 60 pallets every hour or semi-automated to wrap 10-15 pallets per hour.
A full reel of Advantage StretchWrap can be applied to the new machine without any need to re-wind. The larger dimensions of the Advantage StretchWrap reel mean that a replacement reel is only needed every 400-600 pallets compared to 40-80 pallets for plastic wrapping, providing a more efficient solution.
