Cementing your success
AD*STAR® is the well-known sack concept for cement – in use worldwide, patented internationally, and produced exclusively on Starlinger machines, The brick-shaped PP woven sack, produced without adhesives by heat-welding of the coating on the fabric, was developed with automated filling and handling processes in mind.
A practical example: By switching over from paper sacks to AD*STAR®, a Tunisian cement plant was able to reduce the in-house breakage rate from 5% to 0.25%. Given an annual demand of around 160 million sacks for the whole country and a price of about € 2,50 per 50 kg bag of cement, changing over to AD*STAR®-Sacks could save €19 million a year – the equivalent of 8 million sacks and around 380,000 tons of cement.
Not to mention the loss that could be prevented outside the plant of origin…
