Getting More with Less – Use 70%* less plastic with K-Strong

 If you have a product that needs water-resistant packaging, then a 100% fully recyclable paper bag is just not going to cut it.

But what’s the alternative?

These days we’re all trying to make good environmental choices. Possibly a little too late in some areas, but we all know we need to be doing better.

And that’s not always easy because products and packaging need to be fit for purpose.

In a continuing effort to reduce our environmental footprint, we’re pleased to introduce our latest product to the market, K-Strong.

 

Introducing K-Strong Bags

K-Strong bags are multi-ply paper bags. They have a water-resistant surface on the outer shell designed to help protect your product from external moisture and extend product shelf life while maintaining full photographic print capabilities. And the best thing is, they perform just as well but use 70%* less plastic than traditional woven polypropylene bags.

K-Strong is available in both open mouth/block bottom and valve bag (cement bag) designs. Every bag is fully customizable to suit your requirements.

 

K-Strong applications

K-Strong HD bags are specifically designed for products requiring superior strength for transportation and storage security and, most importantly, weather protection.

They can be used for a variety of products/industries including:

  • Cement
  • Building Materials (plasters, dry mortar)
  • Food
  • Pet Food
  • Agricultural products
  • Chemicals
  • Minerals
  • Seed
  • Stock Feed
  • Fertilizers

 

K-Strong benefits

The bag is designed so that the multi-ply layers of paper work as the core strength with the outer layers laminated together to provide the necessary strength and water resistance. They’re actually stronger than conventional 3-ply paper bags, whilst also being scratch proof and water resistant. This all contributes to a longer shelf life.

If you have a product that needs eye-catching graphics with fine detail, this product is a standout option. We can print it in full high definition.

And when it comes to efficiency, K-Strong bags allow automatic filling with filling speed to match that of standard paper valve bags. The block bottom construction makes K-strong bags easy and tidy to stack and palletise.

After many requests for a bag that is environmentally friendly, water resistant, with a high print quality and at an affordable price point we went on a hunt. In our pursuit for the best bag option that is most 'fit for purpose' whilst having the least environmental impact, we feel we have nailed it with K-Strong.

 

*70% less is an indicative amount when comparing a typical woven PP bag used in the same environment/market that K-Strong could replace.
