Mondi has collaborated with 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, 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 from Mondi 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 Advantage StretchWrap paper, along with ACMI’s Rocket E-500 wrapping system, makes it possible to switch to a fully recyclable pallet wrapping solution.

The paper’s impressive stretch-ability 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.

“Working together with Mondi on this new solution is an exciting step towards using recyclable paper for pallet wrapping. This partnership shows how innovations in paper and machine technology can align to increase the number of options available for companies who are looking for more sustainable alternatives,” said Luigi Brugnoli, Global Sales Director, ACMI.

Advantage StretchWrap is responsibly sourced from renewable materials in Scandinavia. Strong recycling rates in Europe for fibre-based packaging and availability of paper waste streams ensure that the paper can be recycled at the end of its life, contributing to a circular economy.
