Product Description

Shurtape VF-719 UPVC Packaging Tape is an economy-grade packaging tape for use in school, home, warehouse or other environments which prefer lower noise than a standard polypropylene packaging tape. This tape does not make the loud tearing noise associated with most packaging tapes - it is quiet when you unwind the roll. You can use Shurtape VF-719 UPVC Packaging Tape on a standard hand dispenser to seal cartons and boxes with heavy ink coverage, recycled fibers, wax coated, or rough surfaces. Excellent choice when moisture and sub-freezing temperatures are a factor. Shurtape VF 719 has an aggressive adhesive which reduces application time because excessive rub-down is not necessary. It can also be used on printed stock and recycled paper.

Shurtape VF-719 UPVC Packaging Tape is a good choice if you work or live in circumstances that require the need to minimize sounds due to sensory sensitivities. People working with adults and children with autism, Aspergers or other conditions with sound sensitivities will benefit from the quiet nature of this packaging tape.

Nominal Tape Widths vs Actual Widths

Nominal vs. Actual Widths Zoom In

Tape rolls are cut to standard tape industry metric widths of approx. 24mm per 1-inch of nominal width ordered. As a result ACTUAL tape widths are normally 5% narrower than the NOMINAL width shown in inches. Examples:

  • 1" Nominal width = 15/16" (24mm) Actual width
  • 2" Nominal width = 1-7/8" (48mm) Actual width
  • 3" Nominal width = 2-13/16" (72mm) Actual width

Note that tape rolls are NOT guaranteed to be splice-free.

Good screen prep tape
Shurtape VF-719 UPVC Packaging Tape
The perfect tape to use for taping-off screens before printing. Easy to use and seals well.

Perfect for taping-off silkscreens
Shurtape VF-719 UPVC Packaging Tape
Just the thing for taping-off silkscreens. Inexpensive and removes without residue.
Shurtape VF-719 UPVC Packaging Tape
Made in the USA
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
