Reducing More Than Your Eco Footprint

Gummed paper tapes have been around for years but have recently seen a resurgence in popularity as companies look to reduce their environmental footprint.

Not only are JIT's gummed paper tapes biodegradable, made from renewable resources and eco friendly, they also offer a host of benefits: -

  • LESS WASTAGE - Used with tape dispensers which moisten & cut the tape to your required length, they dispense the exact amount of tape needed preventing unnecessary waste.
  • COST EFFECTIVE - In most instances only one strip of gummed tape is needed instead of several strips of plastic tape - using less tape offers yet more cost savings.
  • STRONG SEAL - When wet, the gummed paper tape penetrates into the fibre of the box forming an integral bond & effectively becomes part of the box.
  • TAMPER EVIDENT - Cannot be removed from a box without leaving signs the parcel has been tampered with.
  • LOOKS GOOD - Packages look well presented, secure & professional. Being easy to print on they also provide an opportunity to promote your brand.
  • TEMPERATURE RESISTANT - Maintains its integrity even in extreme temperatures & humid conditions - perfect for long-term storage or need to ship or store your parcels in hot, humid or freezing conditions.

Button-Fix expand the range

When JIT were approached by the team at Button-Fix for assistance with bonding their ABS mouldings to stone & glass, we were happy to help.  Drawing upon our 28 years of experience of bonding applications, we knew the Parabond product would be ideal.  Button-Fix were particularly impressed with the samples we sent for evaluation and settled upon the Parabond FAST as the optimal solution for such applications.

When Button-Fix expanded its range of interior panel fixings to include a bonded version, we looked for suitable adhesives to attach our ABS mouldings to a wide range of different materials and Parabond FAST has proved to be a very strong and resilient solution.  We have been able to expand our market beyond wood-based panelling and can now offer a secure and reliable way to secretly fix panel materials such as stone or opaque glass.

HMS Queen Elizabeth

JIT are proud to have products used in the construction of HMS Queen Elizabeth.  The 65,000 tonne aircraft carrier emerged from its dockyard at Rosyth at the end of June and and after completing sea trials, sailed into its home port of Portsmouth on Wednesday 16th August.

A second carrier, The Prince of Wales, is also being built at Rosyth and is still covered in scaffolding.

b2ap3_thumbnail_24017932410_ae03be8883_z.jpg

Each carrier can hold 36 planes and 4 helicopters and is manned by a crew of approx. 700.

JIT's Fire Retardant Neoprene Seals were used in the construction of the 750 doors on board the HMS Queen Elizabeth which can seal off compartments in the event of fire.

At JIT we are proud of our involvement with this project and prouder still to work in partnership with some of the UK's biggest companies.

Thank You

Team JIT would like to say a big thank you to all those who supported our efforts to raise funds for the Butterfly Trust.
