H.B. Fuller New Fiber-based Tear Tape Receives Sustainability Award H.B. Fuller’s new Sesame® Evolution™ fiber-based e-commerce opening tear tape has won the European Federation of Corrugated Board Manufacturers (FEFCO) sustainability award. FEFCO issues seven awards every two years during their Technical Seminar for categories including presentation, sustainability, innovation, lifetime achievement, and health and safety.

Made with 80% Bio-based Material

Sesame® Evolution™ tear tape clearly stands out, as it is a fiber-based tear tape that adds fiber to the recycling stream, unlike the standard plastic technology on the market. With more than 80% of bio-based material, the solution is also responsibly sourced and sustainably sourced certified by PEFC (The Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification).

Sustainable packaging designs and materials are top of mind for consumers, brand companies, OEMs and packaging makers. In fact, with the accelerated growth rate of online shopping comes the looming reality of dealing with an increased amount of packaging waste and tough issues to solve related to recycling or finding other alternatives to plastic.

Suitable for E-Commerce Packaging

Our scientists and engineers developed Sesame® Evolution™ tear tapes to provide frustration-free opening on e-commerce packages. Unlike competitor plastic tapes, this breakthrough technology recycles directly with the board, and adds usable fiber to the recycling stream in support of the circular economy,” said Tania Montesi, H.B. Fuller global e-commerce packaging business manager. “It is designed for an excellent consumer ‘unboxing’ experience of everyday packages used to ship goods from e-tailer to consumer.”

In addition to Sesame® Evolution™ tear tapes, the company also offers a full e-commerce packaging portfolio to help meet the overall industry sustainability needs.
