0:31 min Cosmetics & Medical

According to Tesa's website the company is expanding their range of products with the new tesa 60412 rPET packaging tape.

According to Tesa 70% of the PET that makes up the backing comes from post-consumer recycling. The tape can be disposed of in standard paper recycling bins and recycling processes

As the website informs the tape is made for light and medium weight packaging applications of up to 30 kg and is suitable for manual and automatic dispensers. It has a robust, abrasion-resistant backing and reliably consistent, pressure-sensitive, acrylic adhesive, which results in a low noise unwind.

According to the company the high tensile strength puts its performance on a par with PVC or biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) tapes. The product can be printed with most types of ink systems.
