Eco-friendly adhesive tape with marketing benefit

German tape manufacturer monta Klebebandwerk GmbH has developed a self-adhesive tape that is strong, eco-friendly and directly printable.

Based on proven and sustainable technology

The new tape is based on the same technology as monta biopack®, manufactured with a robust PLA film carrier made from corn starch, coated with a high-performance natural rubber adhesive, its raw materials are approximately 90% bio-based. monta biopack® completely biodegrades under industrial composting conditions and meets the strict requirements on disintegration (composting), biodegradation, ecotoxicity and material characteristics of EN 13432, ASTM D 6400-04, AS 4736 (2006) and ISO 17088 (2012). Tested and confirmed by TÜV Austria with their OK COMPOST INDUSTRIAL conformity mark.

New version directly printable

The new version of this eco-friendly packaging tape – monta biopack® 860 DP – offers the added value of being directly printable: Users benefit from the possibility to integrate their corporate design into an individually designed adhesive tape as advertising medium, plus the certified sustainability of the tape: The transparent monta biopack® 860 DP is also OK COMPOST INDUSTRIAL certified by TÜV Austria!

Sustainable design Made in Germany

Its robust PLA carrier, combined with its high-performance natural rubber adhesive, ensures long-lasting and reliable sealing of medium heavy to heavy cartons and offers minimal material usage as just one single layer of tape ensures a reliable carton closure. It is the perfect choice where a higher adhesive strength is required or where a more eco-friendly alternative to other conventional film tapes is preferred, while still allowing for an individual print design. monta biopack® 860 DP is also ideal for sealing biodegradable bags and films, and for bundling flowers.

Like all other monta Greenline tapes monta biopack® 860 DP is carbon neutral; monta compensates all unavoidable CO2 emissions by investing in certified offset projects in collaboration with Climate Partner.

Designed for anyone putting value on sustainability, this sustainable packaging tape, imprinted with a company logo or advertising slogan, safely transports goods with their marketing message to their destination.
