MasterTape™ Pack at a Glance

Sustainable at the core

We source our wood fiber from sustainably-managed forests, which means that their regenerative capacity and biological diversity is maintained. All of Ahlstrom-Munksjö’s pulp mills and pulp suppliers are certified according to FSC™.​

Our approach to sustainability is based on minimizing the environmental impacts of our operations and products. We use the principles of «Green Chemistry», Eco-Design and life cycle assessments in our product development, so we can determine the impacts our products and processes have on the environment and reduce them. 

Performance is key

Our R&D department works directly with customer to select the right chemisty for tailor-made solutions. We can propose various saturants with different features in order to provide high internal cohesion and very good mechanical properties, to ensure shock resistant tapes.

Adapted to your needs

In order to shorten the supply chain of our customers and reduce costs, we propose online saturation and release coating with different systems for easy, medium and tight release levels. Various functionalities such as printability or waterproofness can be proposed upon request.
