As Ireland’s leading supplier of printed packaging tape, having the first certified compostable self-adhesive tape is something we have been working on for quite some time.
We wanted to wait until we had a product that we could stand over and one that had all the relevant industry certifications. Introducing our new Bio Tape.
It is made from 90% renewable materials and is bio based, meaning that it not made from fossil resources. It has a natural rubber adhesive that is made predominantly from renewable resources.
It is EN13432 certified. Meaning it meets the industrial composting regulations in Ireland and the EU. This means that when commercially composted it will break down into nutrient rich soil in under 90 days, turning your waste into a resource.
Other certifications include ASTM D 6400-04, AS 4736 (2006) and ISO 17088 (2012).
It is strong and robust, has excellent immediate tack and adhesion on various surfaces, has low elongation and is easy to tear by hand. Temperature resistant: from -30°C to +70°C short term (after application at room temperature)
A “90% Natural Material” printed Bio tape is available too.
