XMesh - simply the better solution!
XMesh is a worldwide patented mesh that is produced and sold by Starlinger (under license). The mesh can be used as a packaging net or as a protective net. Other areas of application are films, nonwovens or paper.
Due to its patented design, XMesh offers a significant weight reduction as well as cost savings when compared to conventional nets.
Material and cost savings
Here’s a real-life example:
When packaging 1.5 – 3 kg of fruit, potatoes or onions, companies often use extruded nets with a surface weight of 55g/m² and a sleeve made of laminated BOPP/PE film with 60 - 80µ. The transition to XMesh with a surface weight of 16g/m² results in material savings of 70.9% for each net.
Since the XMesh tapes are stretched, their strength is increased by a factor of 3.5.
Due to the good sealing ability of XMesh, a PE mono-material with 50 µ can be used for the sleeve, allowing for further material savings.
The total packaging weight of an extruded net for 2 kg potatoes is 15.02 g.
The XMesh solution brings this weight down to 7.06 g.
This translates into potential savings of 7,960 kg in plastics for 1,000,000 nets.
