Makes sense.

More sustainability. No compromise in reliability.

You already trust and use our duct tapes. Now we’re producing them in a remarkably more sustainable way. No compromise in performance. No loss in effectiveness. With their innovative >60% recycled backings1, our new tesa® 60462 and improved tesa® 4615 PCR duct tapes will help you reduce the virgin plastic you use. While your choice of adhesive tape may not be an obvious sustainable step to take, every improvement adds up to a big difference. It just makes sense.

More sustainable duct tapes. Make sense.

*tesa® 60462 Heavy Duty Duct Tape comes with 67% PCR recycled content in its backing. tesa® 4615 PCR Duct Tape comes with 63% PCR recycled content in its backing.

The tapes that industry needs

For over 125 years, our duct tapes have been relied on by such heavy industries as construction, engineering and transportation to get the job done. At tesa we understand exactly what industry demands from our adhesive solutions. Yet we also know how important the drive for sustainability is for our customers and partners. Our new improved range of duct tapes helps address both concerns.

Same performance, same value

Tested and UL verified, our new duct tapes are designed to be as reliable and effective as ever. They’re strong and deliver an instant powerful bond on a range of surfaces, are water repellent, and of course can be torn by hand. From a procurement viewpoint, they still represent excellent value for money. In fact, the only real difference is that the new duct tapes use more recycled plastic, and that’s worth a lot to everybody.

Maximizing sustainability with an industry first

The pioneering innovation behind our recycled backing is one of which we’re particularly proud. The savings of >60% in the tapes’ virgin plastic usage1 were achieved using the world´s biggest waste streams from private households, called Post Consumer Recyclate or PCR. This is a challenging step to make - indeed, we are the first manufacturer to successfully deliver PCR in duct tapes. But we’re not going to rest on our laurels, it’s our intention to increase this recycled content further. It’s all part of our company-wide focus to keep finding new ways to support our customers in their sustainability goals.
