THREE-LAYER HIGH GRAPHICS
|The AD ProTex/AD*Star bag offers various advantages when
compared to paper or sewn woven polypropylene bags:
Strenght: woven poly pasted valve bags are significantly stronger than paper bags,
and they have a signficantly lower breakage rate than sewn woven poly bags. One
recent test run of 100,000 bags resulted in a total breakage in filling and transport of
23 bags. With the 2-ply bag, the breakage rate is even lower.
Materials: these bags use significantly less materials. While a paper cement
bag runs about 170g, these bags typcially run about 70g. This makes storing and
transport much easier and saves money.
Pilferage-Resistant: with a minimum headspace with low tolerances,
pilferage is very difficult.
No Stitching or Glue: stiching causes a performation which makes other bags eaasier
to break open along the stich line. Without stitching or glue, our bags are 100%
recyclable without deconstruction, so the bag is not only stronger, is is more
Micro-perforation: the new micro-perforation system means different blains of cement
can be packed easily with minimal dust. The smaller micro-perforations also mean there is
less moisture intrusion.
Stackability: with a box-like shape, the bag is suited for easy transport and
stacking. This also allows the use of bag in modern palletizing systems.
Better Use of Graphics: the box shape also gives billboards for better use of
graphics. The filled bags have six full sides on which printing can be done, giving
a better view to boservers and creating a better brand image.
Print Quality: while similar is printing quality to paper valve sacks, it is much
better than on other woven poly cement bags..
Rotopacker Friendly: the bag works with modern rotopackers, and is suitable for both
manual and automatic placement on the filling spout.
Counterfeit-resistant: the bag is produced using state of the art equipment and is
difficult to replicate without such equipment. This helps cement companies fight against
These advantages of the bag bring no loss of cement while handling (savings), end user
gets full weight of cement bag paid for (better reachability), creation of strong brand
image and consumer pull due to better looking packaging solution (greater customer
appeal), matching international standards and style of packaging and greater customer
These bags also have a wide range of uses outside the cement industry in market segments
such as fertilizers, sugar, gypsum, chemicals, cereals, plastic resins, salt, etc.
Using a reverse printed three layer bag, it is imminently suitable for consumer products
such as pet food, kitty litter, rice, and lawn and garden products. With up to an
8" flat bottom, the packaging opportunities are endless.
