Packing tape is a strong cellophane tape that is extremely useful for packing purposes. It can seal and wrap boxes, bottles and other packages. This type of tape has a thin, clear, acrylic adhesive, glue, as well as with polyester backing. Its tensile strength is usually low unless it is reinforced with fiber. Packing tape is often used on factory-assembled duct systems. Double-sided packing tape is coated with adhesive on both sides to facilitate joining of items back-to-back.
Different Type of The Item
Packing tapes may be carton sealing tape, strapping tape, or paper tape. Carton sealing tape is ideal for most of the packaging solutions. Strapping tape is well-suited to bundle and seal heavy packages. Paper tape is excellent in places where polypropylene and vinyl tapes are not used. Good quality packing tape will be more resistant to slivering or seam splitting; it can seal packages securely. Packing tape reinforced with glass yarns across their length and width is much stronger than ordinary tapes.
Heavy Duty Type
Sticky and strong packing tape can hold heavy packages during moving, mailing, and shipping. It prevents the split and tear of the packages. Packing tape is often used on factory-assembled duct systems. Some brands of packing tapes come with a heavy-duty tape dispenser. The tape is well suited to bind books, cover electric wires, and to seal food packets.
Width, thickness and length are important specifications while selecting packing tapes. One can get the packing tape from the nearest book or office equipment store. The tape is normally sold by the package or case and is measured in length and width. A more recent development, environmentally friendly recycled paper packing tape is now available on the market.
Another tape that you may take a look would be the hook and loop velcro tape which become more and more popular nowadays and is being used in variety industries.
