Kraft paper is a paper or paperboard made from chemical pulp produced in the kraft process. Sack kraft paper, or only sack paper, is an absorptive kraft paper that has high elasticity and high tear resistance, formed for packaging products with high demands for strength and durability.
Today Mr. Gaurav Jalan, Founder, and Director of Packman Packaging Pvt Ltd which is India’s leading packaging manufacturer and supplier talk about reasons one opts kraft paper for packaging. Here are some of the reasons.
The price or cost of packaging eventually adds to the final pricing of any product, which eventually impacts how your product will compete with the remaining players of the market. Kraft paper packaging is less expensive compare to plastic packaging. It also weighs less when compared to packaging products that include features such as zip closures. The weight of the packaging determines the real cost of shipping, which also impacts the final consumer price.
Kraft paper is quite durable enough to withstand or bear elaborate printing in modern, high-technology based machinery. It means you have numerous options when it comes to designing your packaging’s printing. It also stands up to shipping and shelf life quite commendably.
Both paper and plastic can be recycled, but the paper has an ecological advantage because it also rapidly decomposes if it is thrown away rather than recycled. Therefore, one does not have to depend on the buyer to make a good environmental selection, kraft paper is ecologically low-impacting whether it is recycled or dumped to a landfill.
