Packaging Tape | Printed Poly Tape | Printed Kraft Tape
Box-sealing tape, parcel tape or packing tape is a pressure-sensitive tape used for closing or sealing corrugated fiberboard boxes. It consists of a pressure-sensitive adhesive coated onto a backing material which is usually a polypropylene or polyester film which is oriented to have strength in both the long (machine) direction and the cross direction.
A variety of backing strengths and calipers as well as adhesive formulations are available. It is often transparent or tan (beige, buff, brown). Other colors availableb upon request.
Printed Poly Tape
Some of the advantages of using printed tape include the benefit that this prodcut helps to spotlight your company your branded logo. From the moment your packages leave your plant, you are guaranteed visibility and company recognition in every hand it passes through until reaching the final destination. Printed tape instantly identifies the contents of the carton for proper handling and storage. Printed tape also reduces pilferage…it cannot be broken and resealed without detection and warns the consumer not to accept merchandise with a broken seal.

– STRAPPING –
Oriented or tensilized polyester and nylon are the strongest plastic strapping products and are used as a viable alternative to steel strapping in some industries. Polyester provides excellent retained tension on rigid loads. Its excellent recovery properties help a load absorb impact without strap breakage.
There are specialized types available for specific applications. For instance, in cold climates a strap bonded in hot melt glue is used because it is Weather-Proof.
Polypropylene strapping (oriented or tensilized) is an economical material designed for light to medium duty unitizing, palletizing and bundling. It is available in various widths, thicknesses, and polymer variations (e.g., copolymers). Most polypropylene is embossed, some of which is also printed. One major benefit of using Strong polypropylene strapping is that its less than HALF the weight of steel strapping. It is also easier, safer and less expensive to use.
Steel is the oldest and highest tensile strength strapping. It is available in a variety of widths and thicknesses as well as variations in the grade of steel. Steel is used for heavy duty holding where high strength and minimal stretch are desired. Surface finishes for steel strap include: paint, paint and wax, bluing or zinc and wax. The wax is used to better transmit the tension around the bundle and for use with certain types of tensioners. Common applications include steel coils, bundles of metal, baling wire, bricks and pavers, and roll end-binding.
