New Rippatape Halo set to spark packaging revolution in e-commerce

Global adhesive tape solutions provider, Essentra Tapes, today launched the highly anticipated paper-based tear tape, Rippatape Halo, to its ECO range.

The company's breakthrough solution aims to help brands and converters around the world achieve their environmental goals while providing customers with more circular, recyclable packaging options.

Rippatape Halo is aimed at the e-commerce market and is designed to help packaging manufacturers and brand owners alike exceed customers' environmental expectations. The brand new solution is the first paper tape of its kind in the Essentra Tapes ECO range. It is externally certified as recyclable, with the paper achieving an A+ level according to Italian national recycling standards UNI11743 and MC 501:2017.
With a tear performance comparable to our market leading Rippatape® 60, Rippatape Halo does not compromise on the easy opening properties of its plastic alternative. This is truly impressive for a product based on a single ply, specially coated paper with no plastic films or laminates.
Ian Beresford, Head of Marketing and Development at Essentra Tapes, said, "Legislation and consumer passion are driving the industry to seek alternative to new plastics. The introduction of Rippatape Halo to our growing ECO range demonstrates our commitment to evolving our portfolio to respond to evolving sustainability requirements.
"Thanks to our new and unique tear tape technology, Rippatape Halo offers a circularly recyclable opening solution for paper and board packaging that eliminates the plastic used in standard tear tapes and focuses on fibre recovery."
"We have made an effort to listen and collaborate with our customers and key stakeholders in the e-commerce industry. Because above all, we want to exceed our customers' high expectations."
"Sustainable packaging designs and materials are an important concern. We will continue to work on the development of our ECO range, and find ways to further develop our products and minimise our environmental impact."
Rippatape Halo, which is ideal for opening paper and cardboard/fibreboard, is the result of more than four years of careful laboratory testing and high industry expectations.
