Germany adhesives maker introduces biobased packaging tape


In Germany, a producer of adhesive tape for packaging and industrial applications has launched a compostable and renewable option dubbed monta biopack.

Initially targeted for floristry and horticulture, green ecommerce, and organic products,  monta says its tape is about 90% renewable and biodegrades within months.

monta biopack is also tear able, uses natural rubber, can be used for heavy cardboard boxes, and can withstand temperatures similar to most conventional adhesives.

TÜV Austria gave the product its OK COMPOST INDUSTRIAL designation.
