For manufacturers of organic products, these days it is a matter of good form that they choose their packaging products according to the criteria of sustainability and environmental protection. Nevertheless, their design and the visuals should not suffer. Providers of natural cosmetics, natural remedies and hygiene-sensitive products in particular are therefore opting to make increasing use of cardboard packaging with white exterior surfaces. In response to this trend, at the Biofach 2018 in Nuremberg, packaging tape specialist Schümann will be presenting its range of white – and colour-printable – gummed tape.

Stadtallendorf, January 2018. – Cardboard packaging with white exterior surfaces is currently very popular among suppliers of natural cosmetics and natural remedies. Schümann, the specialist company for packaging tape, is responding to this trend, and at the Biofach 2018 and Vivaness 2018 trade fairs which are taking place simultaneously in Nuremberg from 14-17 February 2018, it will be presenting its range of white packaging tapes in addition to its gummed tapes in the traditional brown. At its trade fair stand 281 in hall 6, the company will demonstrate how the closure of white cardboard packaging with its white gummed tape can achieve a visual and ecologically convincing packaging solution for high quality organic products. The white-white combination is as attractive as it is authentic for homoeopathic preparations, food products and wine.

Natural and sustainable

In terms of their environmental friendliness, the white gummed tapes from Stadtallendorf are exactly the same as their brown sister products: the glue used in the adhesive coating consists of potato starch, while for the tape material Schümann also uses paper, the production of which only uses wood that originates from sustainably-managed forests in the EU. The manual or automated application of the white packaging tape is also environmentally friendly, as it is completed simply by adding a little water and without using any chemicals or environmentally harmful additives.

From the technical and functional perspectives, the white gummed tapes from Schümann also offer the same advantages as the brown tapes: they give the cardboard packaging a dust-proof closure that prevents tampering and unauthorised opening because the natural potato starch adhesive coating bonds firmly with the surface of the cardboard packaging immediately after its application. This results in a seal-type closure that makes trace-free opening practically impossible. Unauthorised tampering to the packaging is therefore rendered visible and cannot be subsequently concealed. In addition, when wrapped with gummed tape, each piece of cardboard packaging also gains additional stabilisation – a factor which is also important for the e-commerce distribution of organic and natural products.

Also for heavy-duty cardboard packaging

In addition to its unreinforced standard packaging tapes in white, in its Green Line, Schümann offers white gummed tape featuring integrated reinforcement yarns for the closure of medium-weight cardboard packaging – which are recognisable due to their green roller sleeves. The highlight: These reinforcement yarns are made from natural raw materials and applied on the basis of a special geometric balance. They are therefore very tear-resistant and lend the cardboard an especially high level of stability.

Incidentally: in the Schümann print service, the white gummed tapes can also be equipped with customer-specific four-colour prints. These may include company logos, identity codes or text in any colour on the RAL scale. At the same time, the manufacturers and suppliers can also be certain that the print won't impair the excellent eco-balance of the packaging tape, since Schümann only uses water-soluble inks.
