tesa, one of the world-leading adhesives manufacturers, and - renowned for quality and innovation within the adhesive technology sector, has developed a range of environmentally friendly adhesives, tesa ecoLogo®. The assortment proves products can have powerful adhesive performance whilst being sustainable.
With eight million tonnes of plastic estimated to be entering the oceans each year, there is an increasing demand for businesses to choose more sustainable solutions. tesa is one of the first in the adhesive technology sector - with ecoLogo® - to produce innovative, environmentally friendly adhesive solutions. The range currently encompasses products for production, supply chain, packaging, repairing and renovating as well as office supplies to assist companies’ environmental targets.
The extensive ecoLogo® range is 100% solvent-free and mainly made from recycled or bio-based materials – including the core and packaging - to minimise the use of limited resources like crude oil.
