If you're tired of having to layer your tape to get a good hold, consider making the switch to strapping tape. This is fiberglass-reinforced tape that can be used for everything from packaging to palletizing to unitizing applications. Strapping tape offers excellent adhesion and outstanding holding power. As a result, it requires less tape to get the secure seal that you want.
Strapping makes it easy to cut back on tape use while still packaging and securing items with a strong, secure hold. There are a number of popular uses for strapping tape besides packaging. It's been utilized for a number of personal, business and industrial uses, so it's definitely a versatile option when it comes to high-strength tapes. The following are just some of the many potential uses for strapping tape:
- General purpose carton sealing and strapping applications
- Packaging, protecting and shipping
- Labeling and identification
- Palletizing and unitizing applications
- Bundling and holding
- Repairing cartons
- Label protection
- Holding applications
- Strength reinforcing applications
Another benefit of working with strapping tape is that is features high shear resistance. This means that, while it's easy to apply, it won't rip, split, crack or tear once it's been adhered. This type of tape features a pressure-sensitive adhesive as well, so it doesn't require the extra step of wetting the tape as with gummed paper tape. This tape can be used with a variety of surface types, including boxboard.
When choosing your strapping tape, be sure to check out the specifications to get more details. Some of these tapes have specialized uses, such as high-performance strapping tape, filament strapping tape and appliance-grade strapping tape.
