Product Description

tesa 60013 Reinforced Paper Packaging Tape is a high adhesion paper packaging tape featuring a fiberglass reinforced paper backing with a silicone release coating and a solvent-free synthetic rubber adhesive system. The adhesive does not require water activation. The paper backing for tesa 60013 is reinforced with a fiberglass scrim, making this product the perfect solution for those packaging applications where a secure seal is required. Moreover, tesa 60013 synthetic rubber provides very strong adhesion and tack on a wide variety of carton qualities and is therefore ideal for the sealing of heavy-weight cartons. Thanks to its excellent adhesion and very aggressive tack, a tamper evidence effect is achieved if this tape is removed from the cardboard.

The main application of the tesa 60013 is the secure sealing of cardboard boxes. Its high tensile strength and the fiberglass reinforcement make this product suitable for light, medium and heavy-weight applications. Moreover, the siliconized paper backing ensures a gentle application with both hand-dispensers and automatic dispensing machines.

Compared to filmic packaging tapes (e. g. PVC, BOPP), the tesa 60013 not only offers an outstanding performance but also several sustainable benefits: tesa 60013 can be disposed with the box into the blue bin without endangering the cardboard recycling process. recycled along with the cardboard, and the production process of tesa 60013 is solvent-free.

This new reinforced paper tape is a more sustainable alternative to filmic packaging tapes and performs to its full potential when used for heavy-duty applications. As a clearly proven sustainable product, it can help companies achieve their own sustainability goals and position themselves as a more responsible brand.

Question & Answers

User Reviews

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).
