Kraft Unbleached SPX® Vector

SPX® Vector - The Single Ply Solution

This single ply solution provides the performance characteristics and cost reduction bag users require, and the runnability converters need.

  • Reduced packaging - Less paper per sack.
  • Excellent porosity - No perforations means cleaner handling for the packaging plant, point of purchase and end user.
  • Strong Sack - Means faster fill speeds and a stronger bag for demanding applications.
  • Increased stiffness- Compared with 2 ply 70gsm (43#) bags, one ply SPX® Vector bags run faster due to increased stiffness obtained by a heavier weight one ply.
  • Cost savings
  • Less paper per sack
  • Stiffness allows production of sacks at higher speeds
  • Less waste
  • Faster changeover

End Uses

SPX-Vector extensible high performance kraft paper has superior strength and stiffness with a high degree of air permeability.
