Starlinger IC Star bag
PP sack welded with sealing band

With the IC*STAR sack concept, developed and realised by Starlinger and STATEC BINDER, broken needles, stitch holes and traces of oil on the sack fabric are now destined to become obsolete.,‟Closure of sacks by welding is the solution of the future for standard woven sacks,” Hermann Adrigan, Sales Director of Starlinger & Co. GmbH is convinced. ‟Compared to sewing, the IC*STAR process offers considerable material savings in sack production, consequently requiring less raw material – polypropylene, in this case. Sack producers profit from lower costs, and the reduced carbon footprint is good for the environment.” Material is saved by the elimination of the seam allowance required for a sewn closure, as well as by the use of lighter fabric made possible by the greater sack bottom strength.
