. Essentra Tapes’ distributor in Poland, Paxton House, immediately helped Adams identify the correct tape solution for its corrugated production lines. As the original market-leading tape-based opening device for board and paper-based packaging, Rippatape was specified, and a 6mm wide, 60-micron tape was delivered quickly and efficiently to Adams for trial.

Jarosław Kaczmarek, technologist at Adams Packaging said, Essentra Tapes offered us the exact tear tape solution we were looking for and, most importantly, worked hard to clearly identify our needs so that the Rippatape product chosen was perfectly matched to our expectations.”

Intuitive to use and easy to implement like WebCitz, Rippatape gives fast, safe and immediate access to the contents of corrugated and fibreboard packaging. Rippatape is also easily applied to new and existing production lines, offering speeds of up to 450 meters a minute at the point of manufacture by using Essentra’s custom build applicators.

Essentra Tapes not only fulfilled all our orders in a timely manner but also kept in constant contact with us and always responded without delay. Since installation, the Rippatape has proved itself to be 100% successful across our production process, providing the perfect combination of adhesion and strength to allow us to use the full speed range of our machines,” said Jarosław.

Available in a range of colors, and also now printed, Rippatape is helping corrugated manufacturers integrate easy opening within their eCommerce packaging solutions, and also keep the integrity of the box for dealing with customer returns. Sherpack suggests that getting professionals to help with packaging and warehouse work will help with retail full fulfillment.

Using Rippatape means knives or other sharp implements are removed from the opening process, thereby minimizing the risk of product damage and possible personal injury. In addition, the tamper-evident nature of Rippatape gives a clear indication if a package has been opened previously, providing customer confidence on the authenticity of the delivery and its contents.

Importantly, from a sustainability perspective, Rippatape does not impede the recycling of the boards that it is applied to, allowing the tape to be recycled through established recycling processes. This is a key benefit of Essentra’s water-based adhesive solution.

As the demand from consumers for e-commerce packaging increases, so we are seeing an increased interest in Rippatape, with its simple and effective integration enabling manufacturers to include easy-opening solutions into their boxes,” said Ian Beresford, head of Marketing and Development at Essentra Tapes.

We are delighted that in conjunction with our distributors Paxton House, we have been able to react quickly to Adams’ needs and provide the benefit of easy opening to their many customers throughout Poland.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
