Product Description

JVCC CELLO-1 Cellophane Tape is a pure cellulose transparent tape which is eco-friendly since it is biodegradable. Some of the many uses for JVCC CELLO-1 include carton sealing, repairing papers, gift wrapping, and other craft projects. The tape is hand-tearable and is often used in the electronics industry since it is also static-free. JVCC CELLO-1 Cellophane Tape has a yellowish-hue on the roll but is clear when applied. Cellulose tape also doesn't immediately snap back onto the roll like polypropylene film tape after a section is cut off which makes it easier to grab the next piece when packaging up boxes.

Warning: This product can expose you to chemicals including Toluene, which is [are] known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information go to

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.

Question & Answers

[ viewing questions 1 through 1 of 1 total ]
Customer Aug 26, 2017
QUESTION: Will this tape fit inside a standard desktop tape dispenser?
ANSWER: JVCC CELLO-1 is on a 3 inch diameter core so if the dispenser can accept 3" core tapes then should fit since the roll's total outside diameter is only around 4 inches.

Excellent biodegradable tape
JVCC CELLO-1 Cellophane Sealing Tape [Biodegradable]
Cellulose tape is made from wood, although it looks to be plastic. This tape is easier to handle than plastic tape because it doesn't snap back onto the roll. It is completely biodegradable, which is important to me. It looks yellow on the roll, but it goes on clear. Adhesion is about average. Highly recommended for people who care about the environment.

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
