Natural rubber packaging tapes
With its wide product range monta covers a variety of packaging applications ranging from traditional sealing of cardboard boxes, to covering, bundling, protecting, marking and, last but not least, splicing applications.
The core competence of monta is the production of high-quality natural rubber-based packaging tapes. The natural rubber adhesive system guarantees a long-term and secure sealing of various carton surfaces – especially difficult ones – and in extreme temperature conditions. Natural rubber-based products are particularly recommended for applications in deep-freeze areas. They excel through their high initial tack and good shear strength.
For completion of the product range monta also offers tapes with hot-melt and acrylic technology.
Packaging tapes with natural rubber, hot-melt rubber or acrylic adhesive
Our range of packaging tapes includes:
- PVC, BOPP, MOPP, PET, paper and masking tapes with natural rubber
- BOPP, high crepe and fabric tapes with hot-melt rubber
- BOPP tapes with water-based acrylic adhesive
Backings are available in different thicknesses and colours. PVC also exists in an embossed version.
Due to state-of-the-art converting equipment the products can be offered in lengths of 50m to 2,000m and widths of 12mm to 300mm. Furthermore, jumbo rolls with a width of 1,830mm gross / 1,800mm net and a length of up to 12,000m can be made available.
Developments for special demands complete the product portfolio, as the natural rubber technology allows for the creation of tailor-made high-tack or low-tack adhesives for a wide range of different applications.
Splicing tape for the pharmaceutical industry
A unique product is monta film 257, which is a special splicing tape mainly used in the pharmaceutical industry.
Self-adhesive packaging tapes for printing
As a main supplier to printers and converters monta has a strong focus on PVC natural rubber-based products for top-side printing. The characteristics of the PVC film allow easy and direct printability without any further treatment. Printed tapes are mainly used for marketing and publicity reasons and there is still high growth potential in this business sector.
In addition to offering natural rubber BOPP tapes that are printable in a two-stage process, monta is currently carrying out intensive R&D on a directly printable version.
Directly printable BOPP tapes on a hot-melt basis are also included in the product range.
