Packing Tape

by Admin

You can buy a variety of tapes from Packaging Supplies through our online shop, here is a little about our most popular packing / warehouse tapes.  

Both vinyl and polypropylene tapes are ideal for sealing boxes and packages for storage or transportation.

Vinyl (PVC) tape is superior in tack and strength to polypropylene tape.  The vinyl tape also has the benefit of releasing quietly from the roll.  Even though vinyl tape is strong it has the ability to be ripped easily by hand from the roll to the desired length.  This makes it suitable for using with or without a hand held tape dispenser.  Vinyl tape has a long lasting adhesion and can be used on all types of paper or cardboard surfaces.

Acrylic (Polypropylene) Tape is a great budget alternative to vinyl.  It is also a strong and efficient packing tape, although noisier when releasing from the roll.  Polypropylene tape is also better used with a hand held tape dispenser which will cut the tape more efficiently than by hand.

Packaging Supplies also stock a low noise polypropylene tape.  This tape releases with low noise properties similar to vinyl tape but is lower in cost.  It effectively seals most items securely for despatch.
