|Which Packing Tape should I use ?
There are several key considerations in
choosing a packing / shipping tape for
your packages; adhesive, width,
thickness, and color. This guide will help
you to choose the proper packaging tape
so that your packages are protected and
arrive safely to your customer or friends.
Adhesive - If you are shipping boxes
then you should select a tape with a hot
melt adhesive because it has high initial
tack and superior holding power. Boxes in
transit are typically subjected to rough
handling, so you need a tape that will not
delaminate from the package. You can
be sure that your boxes will stay sealed
when you use hot-melt adhesive
packaging tapes. Hot-melt adhesive
packaging tapes are also a great solution
when you need to strap boxes together.
Please note that the term "hot-melt" does
not mean you need to apply heat in order
to use this tape.
When you need to store items in boxes, it
is best to use packaging tape with acrylic
adhesive. You can use acrylic
adhesive in storage areas with a
range of temperatures and
conditions. Packaging tapes with acrylic
adhesives can keep boxes sealed for
Width - Typical widths for packing tapes
are 2" (48 mm) and 3" (72 mm). For
lightweight, small - medium sized boxes a
2" tape is usually adequate. If you have a
large box, then a 3" tape will provide
better adhesion and security. The
majority of shipping applications utilize 2"
Thickness - The thickness of a
packaging tape is measured in "mils" or
thousandths of an inch. Most packaging
tapes are between 1.6 mils and 3.0 mils
total or 0.0016" - 0.0003". For light
weight packages (approx. 10 lbs and
under) a 1.6 mil tape is adequate. For 10
- 20 lb packages, use a 1.9 mil tape. For
anything over 20 lbs, use a 3.0 mil tape.
Color - Packaging tapes are made in
almost any color, but the most popular
tape is clear. Clear tape is also the most
Packaging tapes are typically sold by the
case. There are 36 rolls in a case for 2"
tape and 24 roll per case for 3". Cutting
Edge also sells packing tape in smaller
quantities of 6 roll, 12 roll packages.
However, your best pricing is available on
full case quantities.
When purchasing packaging tape you
must pay very close attention to the roll
lengths. Most tapes designed for hand
held dispensers come in roll lengths of 50
Meters (55 yards) or 100 Meters (110
yards). Also, brand name tapes, such as
3M and Intertape, are stronger and
provide better adhesion than generic
tapes or imports. 3M Scotch tape is the
best selling packing tape in the world
because the quality is second to
