Zero Waste industrial sacks from TENAX
It’s like they were never there: Self-dissolving paper sacks

Urbanization continues unabated, with new buildings springing up on every corner. The consumption of building materials is higher than ever before. Every day, countless industrial sacks of concrete mix are carried across construction sites, laboriously opened and dumped into the concrete mixer causing large clouds of dust.

How about industrial packaging that solves these problems and protects the environment at the same time?
Our cooperation partner BillerudKorsnäs has thought further about industrial packaging made of paper and created exactly what sounds almost impossible. The BillerudKorsnäs D-Sack does not dissolve into thin air – but it does dissolve in the concrete mixer. Without sacrificing packaging quality and safety.

Climate positive!
No waste – no emissions: TENAX paper sacks to put into the concrete mixer.

Like all TENAX industrial packaging, the BillerudKorsnäs D-Sack is completely recyclable and compostable. However, these properties are actually not necessary. Due to the fact that the D-Sack can be placed unopened in the concrete mixer and dissolves into tiny paper fibers within six minutes, there is no packaging waste to be recycled after the work is done. The wood fibers used here also generally come from sustainable forestry and the production of the D-Sack causes no emissions. On the contrary! The CO2 stored in the used wood is not released even when the paper sack is dissolved, and is thus fully absorbed into the fabric of the building in question. This makes the BillerudKorsnäs D-Sack not only zero emission, but also climate positive packaging.

0 % emissions – 100 % TENAX quality
Disappearing packaging with convincing properties

In terms of quality, the self-dissolving paper sack is in no way inferior to conventional industrial packaging. The D-Sack fully meets the TENAX quality standard. The self-dissolving building material sack ensures maximum impermeability and optimum product protection. The D-bag disintegrates into tiny paper fibers during the concrete mixing process. The fibers left behind in the process make up only 0.05 % of the ready-mixed concrete mass. Tests carried out by third parties have so far not detected any effects of the residual fibers on the mixed end product (cement or mortar). However, corresponding tests are the responsibility of the user.
Moreover, despite its self-dissolving property, the D-Sack ensures the same durability and “shelf life” as conventional cement bags. Your product is also optimally protected from rain and moisture. In addition, like the classic paper sack, the D-Sack can be printed in the highest quality, so your brand shines in all its glory on the self-dissolving industrial sack.
Your customers will also thank you for the D-Sack – because in addition to the “vanishingly” low costs for recycling, the unused residual quantities in the packaging and the clouds of dust during mixing also tend towards zero. This protects the lungs of the processors and thus their health in the long term.
