What are the different types of packaging tape adhesives?
Signet offers a range of different adhesive types in the packing tape range to suit a variety of needs. This includes water activated, rubber adhesive, synthetic rubber adhesive, water based acrylic and solvent based acrylic.
Water Activated Tape is a 100% biodegradable and recyclable alternative to plastic tape. This paper tape can be applied by running a wet cloth or sponge over the water activated adhesive, or by using our Water Activated Tape Dispenser. Once activated, the water activated adhesive penetrates the fibres of the cardboard, creating a cohesive seal between the box and tape.
Rubber adhesive is the most used box tape as it is high-tack and offers a medium level of adhesion. Purchase Signet’s Own packaging tape or Heavy Duty packaging tape, tesa 4263 packaging tape or Vibac P30 packaging tape to take advantage of it’s durability.
Water based acrylic adhesive is designed for items and boxes that are stored or transported in cold environments. If you require a packing tape for this environment, check out Signet’s Own Acrylic packaging tape or tesa 4262 Acrylic packaging tape.
What is the best packaging tape dispenser for me?
There are a number of different packing tape dispensers available. The Magnum dispenser is a popular general use dispenser with adjustable brake for easy tensioning. Signet’s Own Ezi-Load dispenser lives up to its name by being fast to load and lightweight, so is very easy to use. The Safety dispenser is made with a retracting blade which minimises accidents during usage. For a quiet tape dispenser, take a look at the Noise Reduction dispenser which is designed to reduce the noise produced by packaging tape. If you are looking for an alternative to the pistol grip style dispenser, go for the Tear Drop dispenser. It protects the tape from nicks and cuts and is easy to use. Alternatively, if you are looking for an eco-friendly tape solution, check out the Water Activated Tape Dispenser.
What are the differences between the adhesives?
Rubber and Synthetic Rubber adhesive are for general purpose applications and ideal for recycled cardboard. Both adhesives do not perform well in cold temperatures like a cold room or freezer. Water based acrylic is designed for performance in cold environments. As a result, it doesn’t offer the same tack or performance level of rubber and synthetic rubber in a standard environment.
Do you have printed warning packaging tape available?
For packing goods that require special care, Signet has a selection of printed warning tapes available such as fragile packing tape. There are 2 high visibility options offered: orange with black text or white with red text. The tapes have messages printed including ‘Fragile’, ‘Top Loading Only’, ‘Handle With Care’, ‘Security Seal’ and ‘Do Not Break Down Pallet’.
What are the sealing options available without using an adhesive?
For a sealing solution without a packing tape or adhesive, consider using staples. There is a different style to suit any application including a standard office stapler, the Bostitch Tacker, a Hand Top Carton stapler and several different sized industrial staplers.
