October 25, 2022

Tape is a common consumable for packaging and printing companies. Different kinds of tapes are needed in the processes of cardboard thread joining, plate sticking, printing press dusting, box punching machine, sealing, and packaging to meet the needs of the respective scenarios. A cardboard box or carton can’t be made without the involvement of various tapes.

Types of tapes commonly used in the corrugated packaging industry.

Fiber Tape

Introduction: Fiber tape is made of PET as the base material, internally reinforced with polyester fiber thread, and coated with special pressure-sensitive adhesive. Its main features are strong breaking strength, excellent abrasion and moisture resistance, and a unique pressure-sensitive adhesive layer with excellent durable adhesion and special properties to meet a variety of uses.

Uses: Generally used for packing washing machines, refrigerators, freezers, metal, and wooden furniture, and other household appliances, transporting in cardboard boxes, packaging items, etc., to improve the abrasion and moisture resistance of cardboard boxes, thus protecting products. Incidentally, double-sided fiber tape is more suitable for rubber products.

Cloth tape

Product Overview: Cloth tape is a thermal composite material based on polyethylene and gauze fibers. It is coated with high-viscosity synthetic adhesive, which has strong peeling force, tensile strength, grease resistance, aging resistance, temperature resistance, water resistance, and corrosion resistance, and is a high-viscosity tape with strong adhesion.

Uses: Cloth tape is mainly used for carton sealing, carpet stitching, heavy-duty strapping, waterproof packaging, etc. It is easy to die-cut. Currently commonly used in the automotive industry, paper industry, electromechanical industry, as well as automobile cabs, chassis, cabinets, and other places with good waterproof measures.

Sealing tape

Introduction: Box sealing tape, also known as BOPP tape, packaging tape, etc. It is made of BOPP biaxially oriented polypropylene as the base material. After heating and evenly coating with pressure-sensitive adhesive emulsion, so that the formation of 8 microns to 30 microns range of adhesive layer, the formation of the original roll of BOPP tape. It is an indispensable product in the life of the light industry, companies, and individuals.

Uses:① Transparent sealing tape is suitable for carton packaging, spare parts fixing, sharp objects binding, art design, etc. (2) Color sealing tape provides a variety of color options to meet the different requirements of appearance, shape, and beauty; ③ The use of printing and sealing tape can not only improve the brand image, for large brands can also achieve the effect of extensive publicity.

Double-sided tape

Product Description: Double-sided tape is a rolled tape made of paper, cloth, and plastic film, and then evenly coated with elastic pressure-sensitive adhesive or resin pressure-sensitive adhesive on the above substrates. It consists of substrate, adhesive, release paper (film), or silicone oil paper. The adhesive properties can be divided into solvent-based tape (oil-based double-coated tape), emulsion-based tape (water-based double-coated tape), hot-melt tape, calendering tape, and reaction tape.

Uses: Double-sided adhesive tape is usually used to make paper, color boxes, leather, nameplates, stationery, electronics, automotive trim, handicraft paste positioning, etc. Among them, hot melt double-sided tape is mostly used for stickers, stationery, office, and other aspects, oil double-sided tape is mostly used for leather, pearl cotton, sponge, finished shoes, and other high-viscosity aspects, embroidery double-sided tape is mostly used for computer embroidery.

Kraft paper tape

Product introduction: kraft paper tape is divided into wet kraft paper tape and water-free kraft paper tape, high-temperature kraft paper tape, etc. Among them, wet kraft paper tape with kraft paper as the substrate, with modified starch as the adhesive manufacturing, must be water to produce sticky. Water-free kraft paper tape to senior kraft paper as a substrate, coated with a thermal adhesive.

Uses: Kraft paper tape is mainly used in industrial fields, of which wet kraft paper tape can prevent unsealing, has a high viscosity, suitable for sealing export cartons or covering carton writing, waterless kraft paper tape.
