Product Description

Intertape 530 Utility-Grade Flatback Packaging Tape is a pressure-sensitive, moisture resistant Kraft flatback tape coated with an aggressive blend natural/synthetic rubber adhesive designed to offer a positive, attractive seal and excellent adhesion to minimize carton sealing failures and prevent pilferage. Performs well under a wide range of temperature and humidity conditions. IPG 530 (previously called Anchor 530) is designed for use in applications where reduced weight can provide packaging material savings. Complies with Postal Regulation for Uninsured Packages. Application uses include carton sealing, packaging, silk screening, picture framing, beaming/leasing, splicing, and tabbing. The product is not repulpable.

If product size is on sale and mentions that it comes on a non-branded white core means our converter had an overstock jumbo roll available so rolls get slit from that. When rolls are slit from a jumbo they get wound onto plain white cores, not an Intertape / IPG branded core. Country of Origin: United States.

Question & Answers

[ viewing questions 1 through 6 of 6 total ]
Customer Jan 15, 2018
QUESTION: Can this tape be used in a standard packing tape dispenser?
ANSWER: Since the tape has a paper backing, and not film, it is thicker so it's outside diameter is too large for most handheld carton sealing tape dispensers. Thank you. 
Customer Dec 15, 2017
QUESTION: Is the non-adhesive side uncoated? The application I am looking to use this on cannot have any wax coating or clear coating.
ANSWER: Intertape 530 has an adhesive coating and does not require water to activate. 
Customer Dec 15, 2017
QUESTION: Is this tape self adhesive or is it a water activated gummed tape?
ANSWER: Intertape 530 has an adhesive coating and does not require water to activate.
Customer Jun 15, 2017
QUESTION: Can you stamp or write on this tape? Does it have a shiny coating?
ANSWER: It has a wax coating and you can write on it with a ball point pen but it smears a little. 
Customer Apr 06, 2017
QUESTION: Can I write on this tape with a pen, marker, sharpie, etc.?
ANSWER: Yes. I just tried a Sharpie on the tape to make sure and stayed on with no smearing and I couldn't wipe it off.

Tape for ministry
Intertape 530 Utility-Grade Flatback Packaging Tape
We use this tape to hold the backdrop of our women's ministry events. We love it because it is strong but won't peel the paint off.

Pressure Tape
Intertape 530 Utility-Grade Flatback Packaging Tape
It is easy to work with and just right, as my packages are under 40lb.
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
The cut level indicates how many grams of cutting load a glove can withstand from a sharp blade before being penetrated.
Lower gauge gloves are heavier - have thicker construction, fewer stiches knitted per inch and offer less dexterity.
Higher gauge gloves are lighter - have thinner/finer construction, more stitches knitted per inch and offer more dexterity.
Gloves offered typically runs from 7 to 18 (12 and 13 are in the middle of the scale).
