Mondi recently collaborated with the Italian machine producer, ACMI, to create a new wrapping system for pallets that uses paper instead of plastic. By transforming the way pallets are wrapped, Mondi claims Advantage StretchWrap reduces the supply chain’s reliance on plastic, moving to a renewable and fully recyclable material.
Advantage StretchWrap (patent-pending) is a new lightweight paper grade made specially for wrapping pallets. It is able to stretch and resist punctures, providing robust protection for goods during transit. The current industry standard for pallet wrapping is a multi-layer plastic material with low recycling rates.
The paper’s stretchability and high-tensile strength makes it a reliable alternative for transport. Acceleration tests to simulate transportation with ESTL equipment (performed according to EUMOS 40509) and real life transportation trials confirmed that pallets wrapped with Advantage StretchWrap are safe.
