The ad*starKON SX+ is the 500th AD*STAR sack conversion line Starlinger has sold worldwide. It converts woven polypropylene tape fabric into AD*STAR block bottom valve sacks by means of heat sealing and has a production capacity of up to 120 block bottom sacks per minute.


With this investment, packaging producer Plastica increases its AD*STAR sack production capacity by 45 million sacks per year to a total of 80 million sacks. The company already operates a Starlinger block bottom sack conversion line since 2018 and supplies AD*STAR sacks to local and international cement producers such as CIMIVOIRE, Ivory Diamond Cement, Cimfaso and Cimasso.


Starlinger sold the new AD*STAR sack conversion line.

“As we experience increasing demand for AD*STAR cement sacks we have decided to expand production with another Starlinger block bottom sack conversion line,” commented Abbas Badreddine, General Manager of Plastica. “Cement producers appreciate the excellent protection the bags provide for their product.”


Starlinger has developed and patented AD*STAR block bottom valve sacks. The sacks are strong and tear-proof and provide good protection against humidity. Their brick shape makes AD*STAR sacks good for stacking.


Due to the highly precise and fully automated bag conversion process the sacks are suitable for automated filling and palletizing, and cement loss due to spilling and leaking are reduced to a minimum. The use of AD*STAR sacks contributes to more sustainability in the cement industry as less cement enters the environment due to sack rupture, humidity, or leaking sacks and needs to be reproduced to compensate for losses.


Currently, more than 17 billion AD*STAR sacks per year are produced on Starlinger machines worldwide. Due to their characteristics, they are a favored packaging for cement, but are also used for other dry bulk goods such as plastic resins, fertilizer or rice and flour.
