Standard Packing Tape

Standard packing tape is tape that is used for general packing applications like sealing boxes and securing protective packaging. It is made up of a backing material, usually plastic but can also be paper, with an adhesive coating. There are many different types of packing tape ranging from very cost-effective tape for short term use, to high performance high tack tape for export and bundling applications.

Finding the best tape for your application can be a bit tricky and may take a bit of trial and error before you find the right tape for you. There are different backing materials and different adhesive types that all do different jobs, and can be interchanged to make different tape products. The result is pretty confusing!
