Taking on more responsibility for the world around us is becoming increasingly important – for us as a company, for our employees, and for our business partners and customers. That is why we are expanding our range of packaging tapes with sustainable features.
These products can also help companies to achieve their own sustainability goals. The new tesa® 60412 – Recycled PET packaging tape is an example for this. It has a waterborne acrylic adhesive system, and a polyester backing made of 70% Post-Consumer recycled (PCR) material. Used PET products, such as bottles, are recycled and become a new raw material for our tape, thus reducing the consumption of virgin plastic. tesa® 60412 – Recycled PET packaging tape also supports the circular economy. It can be disposed of together with the cardboard in the respective paper recycling bin without jeopardizing the paper recycling process and is certified according to INGEDE method 12 (100/100).
We wanted to offer a more sustainable solution for customers who rely on filmic, e.g., polyvinyl chloride (PVC) packaging tapes, and developed the new tesa® 60412 – Recycled PET packaging tape as the second tape in our more sustainable filmic packaging tape family alongside tesa® 60400 Bio & Strong.
For light- and medium-weight packaging applications up to 30 kg, tesa® 60412 – Recycled PET packaging tape is the ideal solution. It has a strong, abrasion-resistant backing and a very consistent pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive, a material combination that guarantees excellent adhesion on recycled cardboard as well as low-noise unwind.
tesa® 60412 – Recycled PET packaging tape is suitable for manual and automatic dispensers. It has a high tensile strength and a performance on the same level as PVC orbiaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) tapes. On top of that, it offers excellent printability with all types of ink systems and can therefore be used for brand showcase and advertising solutions.
