Packaging Tape

Tape is one of the most used means of sealing boxes. Both manually and mechanically, tape is simple to apply. The box is sealed off dust free along the closing seam while the forces affecting the seam is evenly distributed. There are many types of tape, of which the properties are mainly determined by the composition of the carrier and the adhesive layer. Both the carrier and the adhesive layer have their own individual characteristics again, where, depending on the application, a correct selection must be made.

Polyester, polypropylene, paper or PVC could be used as carriers. For the adhesive layer, the choice lies between hot melt, acrylate or rubber solvent.
Herewith a short summary of the properties:

Types of carriers:

  • Polyester
    - High tensile strength
    - Resistant to wear and tear
    - Resistant to the effects of external substances
    - Resistant to temperature changes
    - Transparent
  • Polypropylene
    - Resistant to wear and tear
    - Reasonably stretch proof
    - Economic
    - Transparent
    - Easy to shape
  • PVC
    - Little noise when being unrolled
    - Fungicidal
  • Paper
    - Easy to unroll
    - Paper tape is activated with water
    - The tapes are ready to use and moisture proof.

    When the tape however ends up in a similar situation, it can again become active and release itself from the cardboard.


Kinds of adhesive layers, with the following properties:

Hot melt (adhesive layer of synthetic rubber)
- excellent cling on various backgrounds
- excellent shelf life (suitable for long-term storage)
- resistant to temperature changes

Acrylate (synthetic adhesive layer on a water basis)
- suitable for humid backgrounds
- UV resistant

Rubber Solvent (adhesive layer of natural rubber)
- little press-on force required for the first bonding
- retains it adhesive strength for a long time



Packaging tape PP Hotmelt

Packaging tape PP Hotmelt Packaging tape PP Hotmelt

PP-cast film with hot melt adhesive (solvent free).

Film Thickness: 28 mµ
Adhesive: 18 gram/m2

Properties:

  • extremely suitable for test liner boxes thanks to its high immediate tack
  • suitable for mechanical processing
  • less suitable for processing at low temperatures
  • limited life expectancy
  • environmentally friendly
  • low noise
  • printable
  • rolls down easily


A PP-cast film with hot melt adhesive is pressure sensitive, therefore good bonding can be realized instantly. This tape is especially suitable when the box is subjected to forces directly after sealing the box, for example when the box is lifted by a suction system.
