Packaging Tape


Packaging tape is a staple item in the world of manufacturing and packaging. It helps bundle, wrap and seal items during handling and shipping and is used in various other applications.

Package Tape Types

Assorted package tape types are available, each suited for a particular purpose.

1. Carton Sealing Tapes

Carton sealing tapes are for securing boxes, offering strong and long-lasting adhesives:

  • Acrylic tape: This adhesive tape is used to seal corrugated boxes. Acrylic tape instantly binds cardboard surfaces and is UV-resistant, heat-resistant and cost-effective. It provides versatility and durability and can be applied by hand dispenser or machine. 
  • Colored tape:Colored sealing tape is an ideal choice for color coding, identification, splicing and carton sealing. This strong tape is coated with premium-grade, pressure-sensitive emulsion acrylic adhesive. It is suited for all-temperature sealing environments due to its resistance to weathering, aging and UV light.
  • Hot melt tape: This durable tape is excellent for high-volume applications. Hot melt tape has a high stick factor, is easy to use and works exceptionally well with boxes and cartons. Apply it by hand or machine.
  • Machine carton tape:Machine tape works with case sealers or tapers to streamline the sealing of corrugated boxes. It offers superior and robust adhesion and easy application.
  • Natural rubber tape: This hardy and premium-quality tape is suitable for various surfaces and ideal for severe temperatures. It is heat- and cold-resistant and can withstand intense humidity, heavy ink coverage and dirty environments.

2. Filament and MOPP Tape

Filament and Monoaxially Oriented Polypropylene (MOPP) tapes are used in various markets and applications, including shipping and manufacturing:

  • Premium filament and MOPP: This reinforced, medium-strength fiberglass tape is high-impact and durable. Premium tape is suited for strapping, bundling, packaging, palletizing and unitizing. Apply by machine or with hand dispensers
  • Medium filament and MOPP: This fiberglass-reinforced, polyester-backed and pressure-sensitive tape offers good adhesion. It is often used in kraft bundling, packaging, utilizing and palletizing applications.
  • Utility filament and MOPP: This economically priced tape is made of synthetic rubber and suited for light bundling, palletizing and unitizing.

3. Water-Activated Carton Sealing Tape

Water-activated sealing tape is a water-based tape that becomes sticky when exposed to water, making it adhere to corrugated boxes. Its primary purpose is to secure cardboard containers, and it is available in non-reinforced and reinforced varieties. Reinforced water-activated tape (WAT) is more robust and offers superior protection when shipping packages. 

WAT has become increasingly popular with the booming e-commerce industry, ensuring packages are received without tampering. Types available include:
