Product Innovation & Sustainability
Green initiative has been the key drivers of growth for SB Tape Group from its beginning until now. Started year 1995, SB started its Green Manufacturing movement by shifting majority of its production from solvent acrylic base into emulsion acrylic base. This has improved on the safetiness on production floor and able to produce more eco friendly products certified with REACH and RoHS compliance. Next year in 1996, SB Tape Group has invented the World No. 1 100% disposable Natural Rubber Latex Adhesive in collaboration with Rubber Research Institute of Malaysia (RRIM). It then formulated with this unique adhesive into the 1st and only Emulsion Latex Masking Tapes. After 10years, SB made its first breakthrough in OPP adhesive solution with Hybrid Adhesive formulation. This unique Hybrid Adhesive formulation is emulsion based that is capable to stick well under freezing point -15°C (or 5°F) and performance is comparable to Solvent-based Natural Rubber and Hotmelt OPP in each of the different applications.
Taking sustainablity a great leap further, SB Tape Group successfully created Biodegradable OPP Tape namely SB Bio Tape, which is made of biodegradable film and organic adhesive. SB Bio Tape is non-Oxo biodegradable but tested degradation under landfill and marine environment, based on ASTM D5511 and D6691 test standards respectively.
For years, SB has embarked on different renewable energy, including using biomass as renewable energy to power up their coating machines. SB strives to create long-term value by taking into every consideration to operate in the ecological, social and economic environment. We endeavour to reduce our carbon footprint by focusing on waste reduction, resource efficiency, sustainability innovation and ecological sourcing. We not only develop towards eco and biodegradable products, we also design our packaging to be compact, thin and light so that the transport delivery of our products be able to minimise the energy usage.
3 areas are in particular highlight:
