Mondi, a global supplier of sustainable packaging and paper, has collaborated with Swiss converter ATS-Tanner to create a paper band, which can hold individually labeled products or bundles reducing unnecessary plastic.
ATS-Tanner uses Mondi’s kraft paper Advantage MF SpringPack and converts it into a band by adding a functional barrier on both sides of the paper.
The paper is then sealed using ultrasound, eradicating the need for any adhesive. This reportedly ensures that the products are secured with minimum packaging, reducing waste and delivering a cost-efficient solution. ATS-Tanner markets the coated bands under the brand name TruePaper.
The strength of Mondi’s kraft paper means it can hold weights of up to 20 kg, making it suitable for fruit and vegetable bundles as well as multipacks of bottles and other consumer goods.
Mondi’s kraft paper used for the paper band is made from renewable, responsibly sourced and certified materials. It is recyclable in existing paper recycling streams across Europe, even fulfilling Germany’s ratio of 95/5.
