Every company that trades or deals with goods has points of contact with packaging materials. From small start-ups selling homemade odds and ends to mid-sized retailers and logistics companies that move several containers and trucks of goods a day – they all need and use packaging materials. However, the wide range of packaging tapes alone shows that not all packaging materials are the same. From traditional self-adhesive PP or PVC tapes to paper tapes and gummed paper tapes that do not use a conventional adhesive and thus offer a more sustainable alternative, the field of packaging tapes alone extends over several finely structured products that offer the right product for every individual requirement. Of course, this is only the tip of the iceberg of packaging materials. Packing tapes, strapping tapes, lashing straps, lifting straps, round slings and much more can be found in our packaging materials category.
Packing tapes are adhesive tapes specially designed for sealing shipping cartons. Typically, these are around 50mm wide, are equipped with a fast-adhesive and use PP, PVC or paper as a substrate. The latter is not infrequently provided with a thread in the carrier for even more stability. These so-called thread-reinforced packaging tapes can then withstand heavy loads despite being paper-based. Thread reinforcements are also used time and again in the area of wet adhesive tapes, which develop their adhesive effect by moistening the underside, which is equipped with starch.

Printed packing tapes
Whether company logo, warning notice or special coding – the vast majority of types of packing tape can also be printed. This can be with the company logo or the own slogan to create a recognition and thus also marketing value. However, a warning such as “Caution glass” or a special marking of the packages can just as well be communicated via the belt. No matter how you would like to design your packing tapes, we will be happy to help you find the right one. Just click the button and send your request today.
Hand dispenser & dispenser
To be able to use packaging tapes quickly and efficiently, hand dispensers and dispensers are indispensable. Hand dispensers in particular, which not only allow the packaging tape to be unrolled and stuck quickly, but also apply it with the correct pressure due to their design, have become established in order to be able to pack goods quickly, easily and thus efficiently. For high-volume shipments, however, semi-automatic or fully automatic dispensers that cut the required tape to size at the same time have become established. This avoids waste and protects employees.
Due to the nature of their business, logistics companies in particular have a consistently high demand for article surveillance products. Thus, round slings and ratchet lashings are part of the daily business of these companies. Due to the high demand, a good balance of price and quality is mandatory here to keep wear as low as possible, but also replacement as affordable as possible.

Sustainable packaging solutions
Sustainability is playing an increasingly important role these days. So it is obvious to focus on such a highly transitory item as packaging materials. While cardboard packaging, provided it is unprinted, tends to be sustainable, the situation is different for PP and PVC packaging tapes. The obvious solution is to replace the base material with paper, which improves the balance of the strip considerably. However, this solution leaves the adhesive, which is still not ideal from an environmental point of view. This is where the wet tapes come in, which rely on potato starch for adhesion but require moistening. But there are also completely different approaches to solutions, such as the Monta Biopack 860, which relies on an ecologically degradable plastic for the carrier.
