Tesa’s Lift & Reseal reclosure system was launched at the Packaging Innovations show in 2013, and this year’s event saw further product range expansion into the market for resealable packaging.

Pouch packs using Tesa 6917 double-sided tape were featured on the company’s stand at Packaging Innovations London this year.  The simple, effective system allows consumers to open the pack, peel off the tape backing and reseal at least 10 times. Convenient packaging that allows customers to guarantee extended freshness and storage has become widespread across a broad range of foods and snacks and many examples are now to be found in all major supermarkets and food stores. Tesa’s 6917 double-sided tape is well suited to the resealable pouches, having been designed specifically for use with filmic bags.

It consists of a transparent, double-sided polypropylene film with a differential adhesive system that delivers optimum ‘tack’ for the resealing application. The product is production-process friendly and can be easily cut using the hot wire systems common among bag machine producers. Due to the differing adhesion values on each side of the tape, Tesa 6917 offers good removability on the covered adhesive side and comes with fingerlift extended liner for ease of use.

Tesa engineers will provide a full, end-to-end installation service that includes the provision of a tape dispenser. Packaging providers can be assured that the tape dispensers can be integrated into packaging lines within a day, without reducing packaging line speed.

Peter Spencer, Tesa UK’s strategic segment manager, said: “All the market pressures, from government regulations about food waste, retailer demands for improved product quality and consumer preference mean this type of application will continue to develop.”
