tesa® 60400 – Bio & Strong



Product description

tesa® 60400 is the first bio-based packaging tape in the industry suitable for medium-weight packaging applications (15 - 30 kg). The backing material chosen for this tape is polylactide acid, also known as PLA. PLA is 100% made form renewable feedstocks such as corn starch, tapioca roots, or sugarcane. The system adhesive used for this tape is a natural rubber with a natural-based resin. Thanks to the smart choice of raw materials and its oustanding design, tesa® 60400 is produced with the highest bio-carbon content available in the industry (98%) and, consequently, a reduced carbon footprint.


Sustainability Features
  • Total bio-based carbon content of 98% (the highest in the tape industry)
  • Official certification from DIN-CERTCO and TÜV AUSTRIA (highest possible rating)
  • Lower CO2 emissions compared to other standard packaging tapes
  • Solvent-free production process

Technical Features
  • Strong adhesion
  • Robust backing material
  • Excellent performance on recycled carboards

Main applications

  • Sealing of medium-weight cardboxes (15 - 30 kg)
  • Suitable for manual and automatic dispensers
  • Packaging, bundling and closing
