IRPLAST LAUNCHES “ECO+ TAPE”: THE NEW ADHESIVE TAPE MADE OF IRPLAST POST-INDUSTRIAL RECYCLED BOPP

Sustainability in IRPLAST means quality: ECO+ tape reduces emissions with no loss in adhesion regardless of the packaging material. Available in transparent version, customised text.

Empoli (FI, Italy), January 8th 2021 – ECO+ is IRPLAST’s new sustainable adhesive tape: in addition to a strong tack and long-lasting adhesiveness it offers CO2 reduction by 18% compared to standard tapes (inks and coating not included in the analysis). ECO+ tape is made of 34% post-industrial recycled IRPLAST BOPP film.

ECO+ tape is a solvent-free pressure sensitive adhesive tape, 25-40 μm thickness with cores made from recycled cardboard. It has strong tack and it is suitable on any packaging material. Available in transparent version, ECO+ tape can be also customized with design up to 10 colours and/or any text.

According to the Company’s strategy, aimed at sustainable development involving all business processes, IRPLAST is strongly committed to invest on innovation. IRPLAST’s most recent achievements are: ISCC+ certified films to reduce CO2 emissions during cracking and film manufacturing processes, film thicknesses reduction, fossil raw materials replacement with feedstocks from chemical recycling or renewable resources, wrap-around labels with wash-off adhesives and special inks to avoid contamination of r-PET. New equipment, like modern co-generation systems, complete the “green profile” of the Company.

Pioneer producer of biaxially oriented polypropylene films with a forward-looking focus on innovation, IRPLAST is one of the largest manufactures of printed adhesive tapes, wrap-around labels for food, beverage, dairy, personal & home care markets and multipack solutions. First in Europe to install a simultaneous stretching LISIM line for the production of BOPP films for flexible packaging, IRPLAST is now the first producing bio-based and PCW-based polypropylene films on a large scale.
