A Visibly Green Adhesive Tape

Ongoing calls for environmental protection already show positive effects in the packaging sector, with many clever packaging designs and product offerings entering the market.

The tape manufacturer monta has been contributing to this development with the market launch of monta biopack®, the first certified sustainable self-adhesive tape made in Germany, since the end of 2019.

monta biopack® consists of around 90% renewable materials thanks to its biobased PLA film, which is coated with natural rubber adhesive. It is certified by TÜV Austria to biodegrade within a few months and carries their “OK COMPOST INDUSTRIAL” label.

Resulting from an increasing request of biopack users to make the sustainability of the adhesive tape “visible”, monta now introduces a printed version: monta biopack® 860 LG.

Thanks to the green print „90% natural material“ monta biopack® 860 LG allows for instant recognition of its sustainability. It communicates its eco-friendly properties, adding value to the user’s packaging, which benefits their reputation with customers, and the climate. An advantage monta customers appreciate.

The adhesive tape monta biopack® 860 LG is printed using compostable ink, and also carries the OK COMPOST INDUSTRIAL logo of TÜV Austria, meeting the requirements of EN 13432, ASTM D 6400-04 and ISO 17088 (2012).

Both biopack versions promise low material usage, as just one layer of tape offers a reliable carton closure, making the adhesive tape ideal for sustainable sealing of medium-heavy to heavy cardboard boxes, for bio-based bags and films, and for bundling flowers & garden waste.

monta biopack® 860 LG is available on monta Green line core, with a sustainable roll length of 80m x 50mm and 1200m x 50mm.
monta Klebebandwerk GmbH is a German manufacturer and one of the leading suppliers of adhesive tapes for packaging and industrial applications worldwide.
