In addition to unreinforced tapes according to DIN 55475, our current range of products also includes a wide variety of filament-reinforced and fibre-reinforced closing tapes. Our gummed packaging tapes aren't just available in brown and white, they are also available in single and multicolored versions, or with individual printing according to your requirements. In the Schümann Green Line group of products, we can also offer you unreinforced and reinforced packaging tape which fulfil particularly demanding requirements in terms of sustainability, environmental friendliness and recycling capability. These closing tapes have an exceptional eco-balance.
Environmentally-friendly cardboard packaging
All the Schümann gummed tapes are made from tear-resistant Kraft paper and water-activated gummed wet tape. For this reason, they are also known internationally as water-activated tape (WAT) or gummed paper tape. The paper is manufactured from wood which originates from sustainably managed forests in the EU. The water-activated glue that we use on our packaging tapes is a natural product which consists of a coating based on potato starch, the adhesive effect of which is achieved with a simple and sparing application of water. In the case of our reinforced tapes for cardboard packaging, multiple filament reinforcements or fibre reinforcements are either overlaid on the packaging tapes in the form or a variety of layer configurations or integrated in the gummed tapes.
Tamper-proof closing of packaging and cartons
With our packaging tape for cartons, packages and packets made from corrugated cardboard or solid cardboard obtain a secure and air-tight closure which makes tampering to the packaging immediately identifiable. This is because after it is activated with water, the adhesive coating on the tear-resistant tapes creates an inseparable material composite with the cardboard packaging. Cardboard packaging which has been closed with gummed tape from Schümann cannot be open or closed again without destroying the surface of the packaging. Our packaging tapes therefore make a valuable contribution to product protection and transport safety.
Manual or automatic application of gummed tapes
All the gummed tapes from Schümann are supplied on ready-to-use rolls that are available in a variety of lengths. The packaging tapes can be applied manually, semi-automatically or with the use of fully automatic closing equipment and packaging lines. The additional strengths of our packaging tapes include their temperature resistance – the tapes are resistant to heat and the cold – as well as their stabilizing effect on packaging and cartons made from corrugated and solid cardboard.
