Ahlstrom-Munksjö Launches MasterTape Pack for Pressure-Sensitive Packaging Tape Applications

Ahlstrom-Munksjö MasterTape Pack Ahlstrom-Munksjö's MasterTape Pack range is designed for pressure sensitive adhesive tape applications, offering high biobased content to minimize its environmental impact.

Oct. 12, 2021 - Ahlstrom-Munksjö has expanded its offering of sustainable tape backing solutions by launching a complete product range for pressure-sensitive packaging tape applications.

MasterTape™ Pack is a sustainable fiber-based alternative to plastic packaging tapes with high bio-based contents. It offers excellent internal cohesion and mechanical properties for shock-resistant tapes, making it ideal for light/medium or even heavy-duty packaging.

MasterTape Pack is available in a wide range of saturation base papers with different weight and mechanical properties. Thanks to the new capabilities, the product range for pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) tape backings has been expanded with tailormade solutions, including saturated and one-sided release coated papers, and reinforced base paper with synthetic fibers. It also offers the capability to coat the other side with different types of primers or barrier coatings.

"Our ambition is to strengthen our position in the packaging tape market with our unique offering for PSA tape end uses — crepe, flatback, extensible papers — that fit the purpose of light, medium and heavy-duty packaging for e-commerce and industrial carton box sealing," said Vesa Yliherne, VP Tape business.

MasterTape Pack is produced from responsibly sourced and renewable wood pulp, certified according to Forest Stewardship Council® standards and its bio-based contents are higher than 80%.

Ahlstrom-Munksjö is a global leader in fiber-based materials offering filter materials, release liners, food and beverage processing materials, decor papers, abrasive and tape backings, electrotechnical paper, glass fiber materials, medical fiber materials, diagnostics and energy storage solutions, as well as a range of specialty papers for industrial and consumer end-uses.
