Type

Acrylic Adhesive

Pros: These are the most common and the most inexpensive commercial grade tapes. They have high levels of clarity, won’t turn yellow over time and have a strong seal in all environments. They will be 2 to 3 inches wide.

Cons: Best used with a dispenser as it can be hard to release from the roll.

Hot Melt Adhesive

Pros: Made from synthetic rubber and is known for quick tack, meaning it sticks faster than acrylic. It releases from the roll easily so you don’t need a tape dispenser. These tapes are ideal in production lines and automated machinery.

Cons: It cannot withstand heat, humidity, and cold like acrylic does.

Rubber

Pros: These can be used on the toughest of surfaces and have work great with corrugated cartons. They’re ideal for dirty and dusty environments and the most unfavourable of conditions. Great for rough handling and heavy duty packaging.

Cons: The most expensive and deteriorate after a couple years. They’re meant for short term and have poor stability against UV rays. Rubber isn’t great for shipping since it can yellow which gives the impression your product is old.
