Game over plastic film!

Mondi’s new kraft paper Advantage StretchWrap is here and it replaces the plastic stretch film used for wrapping and transporting pallets. The innovation is the result of 20 years of expertise and know-how on wrapping papers.

The new way of pallet wrapping that enables the switch to renewable and easily recyclable materials for pallet wrapping.

You have the solution to circularity "wrapped" around your finger. Advantage StretchWrap is a circular-driven solution, that can support you reaching your sustainability goals and targets, that we know some times are not easy to achieve.

That's a wrap! Ready to take action?

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 of up to 11% 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.

Not just a paper

Advantage StretchWrap is made with Nordic fibres - famous for their strength and quality - that are sustainably sourced to ensure that the material supply is truly renewable. The paper 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 rate of fibre-based products is on average 85% according to Eurostat.

Numerous benefits:

  • Recyclable lightweight paper
  • Circular driven solution of high recycling value
  • Outstanding paper stretch of 11%
  • Resists breaking due to its high puncture resistance
  • Exceptional tensile energy absorption (TEA)
  • Tested for safe transport (according to EUMOS standard)
  • High quality and responsibly sourced Nordic fibres

End-uses

  • For wrapping homogeneous filled pallets with flat sides and no sharp corners. For example, pallets packed with:
    • PET water bottle multipacks
    • PET soda bottle multipacks
    • baby food jars
    • food jars
    • boxed goods
    • empty loose paper bags or packed in boxes
  • For Euro pallets with max. height 180cm and weight 300-800 kg

Paper wrapping system that works!

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.

You can see the video below of how ACMI's machine Rocket E-500 is wrapping a pallet of water bottles with Advantage StretchWrap

This innovative wrapping system we offer together with ACMI - Advantage StretchWrap & Rocket E-500 - is a game changer for those who want to switch to recyclable and renewable materials while transporting their products from point A to point B. This technology offers a renewable alternative to tertiary packaging and reduces the reliance on plastic. 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.
