Packing Tape: Understanding Your Options

Packing and Sealing Tape: Getting Started

What Do You Need To Know?

a. There are 3 types - acrylic, hotmelt, rubber

b. There are 3 sizes - lightweight, medium, medium plus

c. There are 3 colours - brown, clear, crystal clear

If you take a minute to understand the options available to you it’s easier to make an informed decision. Let’s talk about the 3 main types below.

Acrylic

Pros: These are the most common and the most inexpensive. They have high levels of clarity, won’t turn yellow over time and work great in all environments.

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

Hot Melt

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 dispensers. Most commonly used 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 the greatest stick because they come from the sap in rubber trees. They work well for dirty and dusty environments and the most unfavourable of conditions.

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.

Who doesn't love brown packing tape?!?!? Kidding. Its just tape. But my boss needs me to find the best price for our tape suppliers and after some time came across Altro Labels. On point.
