Tape Handles for Automatic Installation (0)

adhesive tape carry handle - plastic bags alternative - eco friendly - retail store



Prepared Handles for Automatic Equipment

The label, positioned where the hand is placed to lift the product, is already glued to the adhesive roll.

The handles are cut and installed automatically on the products.



Eliminates machine stoppages caused by defects in handle preparation

Improves efficiency

Reduce operator interventions as the adhesive roll is the only changeover

Reduces material management as only the adhesive is to be procured

Prepared handle section can be with paper, polypropylene or polyethylene foam 1mm or 2mm for greater comfort



Handles Made on Automatic Equipment


Handles are made by the machine using a clear adhesive and a paper label.

As with the prepared handles, the handle is cut to the right length and installed automatically.

A semi-automatic machine is also available just to make the handles, and then an operator installs them on the product by hand.



The same roll of clear adhesive can be used with different labels

A change of handle design only requires a paper label change




Equipment for Adhesive Tape Handle Application

A large selection of machines has been developed to answer the needs of all kinds of packaging like shrink film products and packs, large bottles, bags, pouches, or any cumbersome product.





Adhesive Tape Bundling

A range of machines was designed to bundle a variety of products, rigid containers, soft bags, paperboard… by applying an adhesive tape around the products. Bundling using adhesive tape permits to reduce the material required to hold the products together when compare to shrink film or cardboard.

Common bundles are built with 2, 3 or 4 products. Adhesive tape bundling is well suited for gable-top and brick carton, food in box or plastic film, hygienic products and more.

Banning single-use plastic bags (0)

adhesive tape carry handle - plastic bags alternative - eco friendly - retail store  


Single-use Plastic Bags Ban

Since January 1st 2018, bylaw 16-051 prohibites the distribution of certain shopping bags in retail stores in Montréal.

The ban for merchants offering light plastic bags to consumers  applies to all establishments whose main activity is the sale of merchandise at the retail level.


Prohibited Bags

 Traditional plastic shopping bags (less than 50 microns thick)

 Oxo-degradable, oxo-fragmentable or biodegradable plastic bags


Allowed Bags

Plastic bags used exclusively to carry food items to the cash register of a retail store or to protect these items, for hygiene purposes, from direct contact with other items (fruits, vegetables, nuts, bulk confectionery, prepared foods, meat, fish, bread, dairy products, etc.)


Why Ban Single-use Grocery Bags?

In addition to being a visual nuisance, lost or abandoned plastic bags have a significant impact on terrestrial and marine ecosystems.

Their decomposition in landfill sites may take several hundred years. In addition, the ban on the distribution of certain bags is intended to encourage reduction at source, which advocates among other things, the reduction of packaging.

Using reusable containers and bags and banning single-use products are two simple gestures that promote reduction at source.


Best Practices to Comply with the Bylaw

 Use reusable bags

 Use compliant bags only when absolutely necessary

 Place into recycling the plastic bags that remain in circulation

Use Adhesive Tape Handles to carry items like (scott paper towels, diapers, water packs...)
