Due to this property, the number of layers of materials is significantly reduced, thereby reducing costs and saving more than traditional kraft paper packaging.
From 1960 to now, kraft paper packaging with a structure of 1 layer of Kraft paper and 1 layer of PP plastic is the perfect replacement for products made entirely from paper. They are widely used in industries such as construction, chemicals, plastic industry and plastic additives (plastic beads, pigments, …).
Besides, modern kraft paper packaging products with PP plastic are also commonly used in agriculture, animal husbandry and aquaculture industries.
