Adams Packaging, one of Poland’s leading manufacturers of corrugated cardboard packaging, has selected Essentra Tapes’ Rippatape brand, to help it meet an increase in consumer demand for functional eCommerce packaging. 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, 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.

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.”
