Signet has a vast range of packaging tapes to effectively seal cartons that will be shipped or stored. Each tape has its own unique properties that will help determine if it is right for the job. While it is important to choose the right tape, how it is stored and applied is vital for optimum performance and adhesion. Below are few simple tips to get the most out of your tape:
- Store tape away from direct sunlight and in a cool, dry environment
- When applying tape; dust, dirt and contact of hands or fingers on the adhesive can reduce the tape’s adhesion abilities. For optimum adhesion apply tape in a dust–free environment and wipe away any dust or dirt from the carton itself.
- When storing or shipping goods in colder environments a water based acrylic adhesive packaging tape is ideal. Apply the tape outside the area to get the best stick.
