. 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.”

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground.
