Today, Indafor, Inc. adds environmentally forward RECYCOTAPE™ tape backing to its already expansive sustainable product offering. Consumers can now recycle shipping or packaging boxes sealed with RECYCOTAPE, as this unique packaging tape backing will break down along with the box during the recycling process.

RECYCOTAPE is uniquely made from FSC® certified, sustainably sourced fibers that easily re-pulp and allow coating removal during the recycling process. As a result, these base papers can provide usable fiber to reprocess into new paper.

“There is a renewed interest in the market for an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional packaging tapes and a viable replacement for plastic-based, non-recyclable tapes used to seal corrugated boxes. RECYCOTAPE is both. From end to end, Indafor considered every detail in designing this innovative product,” says Chris Boothby, Pressure Sensitive Tape Backings Product Manager for Indafor.

Indafor has supplied tape backings with high strength, superior runnability, and adhesive release performance for decades. This forward-thinking, sustainable solution broadens Indafor’s extensive portfolio of customizable tape backing products.

“Indafor leads the market in custom performance tape backings for standard and customer-specific packaging tape applications. RECYCOTAPE is everything that customers expect from Indafor; high tensile strength, premium printability, superior extensibility, and sustainably manufactured. We’re excited to now meet consumer demand with a state-of-the-art tape backing product that performs beautifully without compromising the environment,” concludes Boothby.
