Packaging is required, but sustainable packaging is needed now more than ever! The entire range of paper packaging tapes from PPM is INGEDE certified. Let's find out about them together in detail!
When it comes to products, packaging is essential. It protects merchandise and other types of inventory in transit and preserves them when stored or placed on shop shelves. Packaging is ubiquitous: it is used in shipping, storage and protection of various products like foodstuffs, cosmetics, medicines and pharmaceuticals. Product packaging plays also a huge role in marketing in terms of the product’s significance among consumers.
Packaging is required, but sustainable packaging is needed now more than ever. All over the world, consumers are increasingly aware of sustainability, in particular the impact of packaging on the environment. For this reason, producers are facing the issue by adopting solutions that are certificated eco-friendly.
Recyclability is a crucial issue in the PSA tapes sector because the adhesive represents an obstacle to their recyclability (waste): there are no tapes on the market certified as recyclable thus far. Applied during box closing, PSA tapes and cardboard boxes are disposed of together during the paper collection and recycling process. In addition, different methods are used to determine the level of recyclability of paper products (including paper-based PSA tapes for packaging), without there being a single, clear and general rule. Among those currently recognised at the European level is the INGEDE certification, which evaluates the recyclability of packaging adhesive tapes within the graphic papers supply chain. INGEDE is an international association that has devised a series of methods to prove how the application of specific products, such as adhesive tapes, does not compromise the recycling process of paper material. Therefore, using INGEDE-certified products, such as our eco-paper packaging tapes, means using packaging solutions that have a minimal environmental impact and footprint, in other words, it means making a sustainable choice.
The entire range of paper packaging tapes from PPM is INGEDE certified. Each of our paper packaging tapes is recycling-friendly according to INGEDE Method 12. Find out about them together in detail.
