Tape can often look similar to each other, but they all have different properties or applications to suit numerous purposes. Here are some of the different types of packaging tape to consider when deciding which tape is right for your job:

Acrylic Packaging Tape

  • Can withstand extreme temperatures such as refrigeration
  • Ideal for long term storage
  • Can use on a wide range of materials such as corrugated, metal, glass, wood, and plastics
  • Stronger resistance to oxidation – if exposed to sunlight, the tape will not discolour

Hot Melt Tape

  • Exceptional adhesion strength to corrugated products, flexible, and performs well in various applications
  • High tensile strength – can withstand strong force before tearing
  • Can discolour over time
  • Suitable for applications involving machine applied tapes

PVC Tape

  • Tear and puncture-resistant – ideal for durable protection
  • Performs well on corrugated products
  • Higher resistance to humidity, chemicals, and moisture
  • Best utilized in both medium and heavyweight packaging
