Discover our new Ahlstrom MasterTape® Pack Crepe - Make your packaging lighter!


50% lighter than traditional PSA paper packaging tape backing, 100% more stretch

Ahlstrom's MasterTape® Pack Crepe is a well-balanced compromise between low-base weight and high-stretch properties that protects your goods during shipping or storage, all the while contributing to minimize environmental impact thanks to high-biobased content from well-managed certified forests.

It is a perfect fit for light-duty packages, and furthermore, the crepe texture allows the tape to conform to uneven surfaces and provides some flexibility.
