In our latest Spotlight, monta introduces biopack, its latest self-adhesive, eco-friendly tape that is also directly printable. 

Eco-friendly adhesive tape with marketing benefit

German tape manufacturer monta Klebebandwerk GmbH has developed a self-adhesive tape that is strong, eco-friendly and directly printable.


Based on proven and sustainable technology

The new tape is based on the same technology as monta biopack, manufactured with a robust PLA film carrier made from corn starch, coated with a high-performance natural rubber adhesive. Its raw materials are approximately 90% bio-based.

monta biopack completely biodegrades under industrial composting conditions and meets the strict requirements on disintegration (composting), biodegradation, ecotoxicity and material characteristics of EN 13432, ASTM D 6400-04, AS 4736 (2006) and ISO 17088 (2012). Tested and confirmed by TÜV Austria with their OK COMPOST INDUSTRIAL conformity mark.

New version directly printable


The new version of this eco-friendly packaging tape - monta biopack 860 DP - offers the added value of being directly printable: users benefit from the possibility to integrate their corporate design into an individually designed adhesive tape as advertising medium.

Plus, users can benefit from the certified sustainability of the tape: The transparent monta biopack 860 DP is also OK COMPOST INDUSTRIAL certified by TÜV Austria!

Sustainable design Made in Germany

Its robust PLA carrier, combined with its high-performance natural rubber adhesive, ensures long-lasting and reliable sealing of medium-heavy to heavy cartons and offers minimal material usage. Just one single layer of tape ensures a reliable carton closure.

It is the perfect choice where higher adhesive strength is required or where a more eco-friendly alternative to other conventional film tapes is preferred, while still allowing for an individual print design. monta biopack 860 DP is also ideal for sealing biodegradable bags and films, and for bundling flowers.

Like all other monta Greenline tapes, monta biopack® 860 DP is carbon neutral; monta compensates all unavoidable CO2 emissions by investing in certified offset projects in collaboration with Climate Partner.

Designed for anyone putting value on sustainability, this sustainable packaging tape, imprinted with a company logo or advertising slogan, safely transports goods with their marketing message to their destination.
