Reducing costs and minimising unnecessary packaging use is essential to ensuring your business is both sustainable and capable of growth in the long-term, in terms of both environmental impact and operational viability.
With the UK’s third coronavirus lockdown rendering many of us housebound and forced to seek out retail therapy online, e-commerce markets have seen an enormous upsurge in growth in recent months.
So, if your business is transitioning to accommodate an increase in web-based sales and sealing more cartons and postal packaging than ever, here are five innovative tape products to get the job done with less waste and with the environment in mind.
e-tape™ Gold is constructed from a high-performance polypropylene with a premium solvent adhesive. The result is a strong and versatile tape that adheres to a range of materials and surfaces, retaining its bond in both humid and low temperature environments.
e-tape™ systems’ standard 150m length and 48mm core redefines quality, value and innovation, resulting in a role that holds the equivalent of a staggering 2.26 rolls of standard packing tape, reducing waste by up to 56%.
A strong, reliable gummed tape option that's resistant to changes in both temperature and humidity, this versatile packaging solution is water-activated and environmentally friendly, securely adhering to corrugated surfaces and producing a firm seal for your cartons with less waste.
Applying moisture to the tape produces a strong bond, reducing waste, saving money and eliminating the need for wax-coated and glossy papers, which are often non-biodegradable.

For those in need of a more portable paper tape solution, Boxbond™ is a machine-free, eco-friendly alternative that's 50% wider than conventional parcel tape, meaning just a single strip is required to seal a carton.
Boxbond™ creates a secure, firm seal without the need for additional dispensing units, helping to reduce waste, increase process efficiency and save money.
Pre-printed tape can serve as the ideal choice for quick product identification and notifying handlers of fragile and delicate products. Better still, pre-printed rolls provide a simple, cost-effective solution for both advertising your business and sorting goods in warehouses and post rooms without the need for excess labelling and documentation.
Regular tape dispensers often require users to over-extend during use, causing undue stress and discomfort to the arm and wrist, but ZeroTape® has been ergonomically designed to reduce muscular activity by up to 23% by adjusting the user’s wrist position during use, helping to lessen stress and strain.
A quick-lock mechanism allows you to replace tape with ease, and an innovate blade replacement system removes the need for tools, getting you back to work in an instant.
