Switching over to eco-tape
With sustainability at the forefront of our minds at the moment, switching to paper tape from plastic tape would be the sensible thing to do.
Paper tape is biodegradable and can be recycled with the box it is attached to. It has all the adhesion qualities of plastic tape and looks a lot better.
We often hear the comment that paper tape is more expensive than plastic tape. If you compare metre for metre then this would be true but as the quality and feel is better than the plastic tape you will find that operators use just one strip of paper tape rather than multiple strips of plastic tape therefore the cost of tape per box is less.
There are two types of paper tape.
One has an adhesive just like the plastic tapes and is used in the same way. The other is a water-activated adhesive (gummed paper tape) which requires the application of water to make them sticky. The water based gummed tape is the strongest adhesive of all.
We are here to support you. If you have any questions on choosing the right tape for your application please contact the team.
