New Sustainable Self-adhesive Tape for Packaging Applicationsmonta has launched monta biopack®, the first certified sustainable self-adhesive tape made in Germany. The adhesive is made from around 90% renewable resources. The film is biobased; the natural rubber adhesive consists of predominantly renewable raw materials. Under industrial composting conditions, the sustainable adhesive tape biodegrades within a few months, closing the natural recycling loop.
Benefits of Using monta biopack®
The eco-friendly monta biopack® offers strong benefits making it suitable for many applications. The carrier is robust with low elongation, its natural rubber adhesive ensures reliable adhesion to varied surfaces. The adhesive tape is tearable by hand and easy to unwind and apply. With a temperature range of -30°C to +70°C short term it plays in the league of the most resistant adhesive tapes. monta biopack® is therefore suitable for permanent closure of medium heavy to heavy cardboard boxes and can also be used in packaging machines.
The tape is also ideal for sealing biodegradable bags and films and for bundling flowers and garden waste.
The latest monta development is perfect for floristry and horticulture, manufacturers of organic products, the green e-commerce business, organic retailers and anyone putting value on sustainability.
