Global packaging and paper group Mondi plans to present several new packaging product launches and improvements at three industry events this September and October: FachPack, Pack Expo and Scanpack.

At all three fairs, Mondi will exhibit a new packaging laminate – BarrierPack Recyclable – designed to help reduce plastic packaging waste through recycling. The plastic laminate for pre-made pouches and FFS roll-stock is described to be fully recyclable without compromising quality or functionality.

Mondi will also launch an advanced version of its perFORMing brand, a natural brown formable paper for shallow tray applications such as cheese, meat or salmon. perFORMing combines two Mondi materials – Advantage Formable paper and a new barrier coating produced in-house – in a patented new thermoformable packaging solution that is described as using up to 70 percent less plastic.

Mondi’s improved Splashbag will also be highlighted at all three fairs. It is a water repellent pasted valve bag ideal for dry, powdery materials. Originally launched in 2015 and improved through R&D, Mondi says the bag is more water repellent than before – resisting direct rain for up to six hours and can be stored in damp environments for up to five days without moisture spoiling the contents.

At Pack Expo, Mondi will introduce Ultra-HD printing to the North American market – a new printing approach that boasts advanced separation technology to help improve the vividness of flexographic printing. The technology, Mondi explains, produces photographic quality that matches or even exceeds that of rotogravure, while retaining flexography’s operational and cost advantages. Print resolutions are equivalent to 300+ lines per inch (LPI), Mondi says. The Ultra-HD print option is available for Mondi’s FlexziBox line of reclosable bags.

Meanwhile at FachPack and Scanpack, Mondi will present its latest containerboard portfolio member, ProVantage Powerflute. Designed for the safe packaging and transport of fruits and vegetables, ProVantage Powerflute boasts reliable packaging performance and moisture and humidity resistance.
