South Korea’s Ssangyong Cement Industrial Co. Ltd. enlisted its packaging supplier to produce an 88-lb. (40 kg) cement bag equal to rough handling en route to Antarctica research stations. Taemyung Industrial Co. Ltd. turned to two-ply Mondi Kraft Advantage sack, exhibiting what Vienna-based manufacturer Mondi Group notes is high tensile energy absorption and porosity. The product’s capacity to replace three-ply alternatives nets material savings exceeding 25 percent.
