Product Overview

Our 48mm eco paper parcel tape is made from renewable kraft paper not from plastic, to help with the reduction of micro-plastics produced from conventional petrochemical based plastic parcel tapes!
It is water and solvent resistant, acid free - suitable for picture framing use and can also be used for cold storage (it can be applied at chilled temperatures (roughly 5 degrees) and stored down to -25). Our eco parcel tape can be left on the cardboard carton when it is recycled. At present though, realistcally, it is more likely that paper recyclers will still be using systems to recover this mechanically for energy recovery through incineration (as they do with plastic tapes) rather than repulping it. Hopefully this situation will improve as paper tapes become the norm and the recycling industry advances in line. Composting - although paper & cardboard is often composted our recommended method of disposal of the tape would be to leave it on the box and put it in with the cardboard recycling, not to compost it.

This roll is 48mm wide and 50 meters long.
This tape is self adhesive (no need for water to activate the glue).
Suitable for application by a standard hand gun or tape dispenser.
It is also easy to tear by hand - no knife or scissors required.
The rolls have a recyclable cardboard core and are supplied without a plastic retail wrapper.
Box quantities use a siliconized paper sheet as a separator. This can be recycled or for volume users, or it can be returned to us to be reused by the packers.

We wanted to reduce the amount of single use plastic in our packaging but we were unable to find a paper tape on the market that was sensibly priced and sourced from within the UK / EU. We send thousands of parcels a month and get through rolls and rolls of tape. That was a lot of plastic but also it was a lot of buying power! We contacted some tape manufacturers and asked for a tape to be made to our specification. We wanted it to be self adhesive and work in a standard tape gun, we'd tried gummed paper tape before but didn't like the time it took to dry. For this to work and be a viable alternative to plastic tape it had to be as easy and convenient to use! We ran some trials and results were positive, this led us to think that we might not be the only company who want to use paper tape for their postal packaging and so we decided to offer it on our website. We sell 4 different sizes, 48mm wide, 75mm wide, 24mm wide and 19mm wide. We are especially proud of the 19mm width because we can offer this in bulk from just under £1.00 per 50 meter roll!

Excellent Parcel Tape 48mm

I've tried several eco- paper tapes, and this one is the best. Sticks well at cooler temperatures too. Highly recommended.

Great tape

This tape sticks a lot better than some of the other paper tape I've tried. I use it for the parcels to send orders. Good value for money and fast delivery. Will definitely buy again. Thanks
