Thanks to its composition from exclusively renewable raw materials, gummed paper tape (wet adhesive tape) also forms an environmentally friendly alternative to parcel or self-adhesive tape made of plastic - so shipping companies live up to their social responsibility and send an important signal for sustainability and environmental protection.
OPITZ integrated gummed paper tape technology into their end-of-line packaging machines many years ago and have been developing and optimizing its use ever since. Today, we are among the leading experts for automated processing of gummed paper tape.
