What are Ad Star Bags?
AD*STAR is the renowned block bottom sack made without adhesives from coated polypropylene fabric – patented worldwide by Starlinger and made exclusively on Starlinger machines. The sack can be produced either as a one-layer block bottom valve bag or as an open mouth bag with a block bottom
AD Star bags are significantly stronger than paper bags, and they have a signficantly lower breakage rate than sewn woven poly bags. One recent test run of 100,000 bags resulted in a total breakage in filling and transport of 23 bags. With the 2-ply bag, the breakage rate is even lower.
These bags use significantly less materials. While a paper cement bag runs about 170g, these bags typically run about 70g. This makes storing and transport much easier and saves money.
