Reduce your carbon footprint by up to 20%
Switching base material and adhesive from a typical PVC (Polyvinyl chloride) tape could reduce your carbon footprint by up to 20%.
Switching base material and adhesive from a typical BOPP (Biaxially Oriented PolyPropylene) tape could reduce your carbon footprint by up to 10%.
Understand your entire supply chain
Brown kraft paperUnbleached paper made from virgin pulp. Brown kraft paper is the most sustainable material for this self adhesive tape. Ideal for simple, bold designs. Bright colours will appear more muted on brown kraft tape.
White kraft paperBleached paper made from virgin pulp. White kraft paper has a higher carbon footprint than brown kraft paper but colours appear much brighter.
48mm48mm is the industry-standard width for tape. Suitable for the majority of use cases.
72mm72mm tape is stronger than 48mm but uses more material to produce. Ideal for heavier or wider packages as the tape covers a greater surface area.
Solvent-based adhesivePressure-activated adhesive. Doesn’t need water or heat to adhere to packaging.
Water-based inksMade with water as their primary base, these inks are designed for flexographic printing. More sustainable than solvent-based inks.
Core boardUsed for the core of tape rolls. Core board allows tape to be handled, stored, transported and easily used. Core board is 100% recyclable.
Solvent-based varnishVarnish is applied to self adhesive tape to prevent it from adhering together when wound.
Supply chain assurance
A resilient, responsible supply chain
It's made from a backing material (often paper) which is coated in an adhesive. The adhesive is pressure-sensitive and doesn't need activating with water, heat or a solvent like some other tapes. This means you can use self adhesive tape straight out of the box.
Self adhesive tape can safely secure a package of up to 10kg but only under certain conditions. In reality, its strength will depend on the type of box used, the contents of the box, how the tape is applied and how the tape has been stored. Because there are so many variables, we can't guarantee that all self adhesive tape will secure 10kg.
For anything heavier, we recommend gummed tape.
A standard tape dispenser is the easiest and fastest way to apply self adhesive tape. Or you can apply it by hand.
Self adhesive tape isn't recyclable on its own as it uses a laminated layer to secure any ink. To avoid contaminating waste streams, dispose of it with general waste.
It can, however, be recycled when adhered to paper-based packaging that is also recyclable, unless the weight of the tape is more than 20% of the total package weight.
Store your self adhesive tape in an environment that's 17°C or warmer. And keep it away from any UV light exposure as this can weaken the adhesive. Learn more
