    also differ in terms of material, strength,
    thickness, width, and so on. With so many options
    available, deciding on the best tape for your
    business can be difficult.
  • Here's a quick guide to understanding the
    different types of packaging tapes.

    shapes and sizes. However, even paper and plastic

    tapes, are medium-strength tapes used for a
    variety of applications, most notably sealing
    corrugated boxes.

    application of water to activate, they can be
    used anywhere

    for sealing and enclosing light packages weighing
    less than 15kg.

    is easy to handle and apply
  • 3. Heavy-Duty Packing Tape
  • Heavy-duty tapes are used for boxes weighing 20
    to 30 kilograms. PVC tapes are commonly used for
    this purpose, but paper tapes reinforced with
    fiberglass can also be used. These tapes provide
    electrical and chemical insulation and are
    frequently used for electronic packaging

  • 4. Tamper-Evident Tape
  • Tamper-evident tapes or security packaging tapes
    are used to detect package tampering. They can be
    used to ensure the authenticity of the contents
    of a box, to prevent adulteration, or to indicate
    a breach. When peeled, such tapes are difficult
    to tear away and leave behind the printed text.
  • 5. Scotch Tape
  • Scotch tape is extremely common. They adhere
    easily to packages and are particularly useful
    for adhering to paper. They are water-resistant,
    inexpensive, and portable.
  • 6. Gummed Packing Tape
  • Gummed packing tapes are paper tapes that are
    also known as Kraft paper tape. They are used for
    both lightweight and heavy-weight cartons (with
    reinforcement). Unlike plastic tapes, gummed
    packing tapes are graded based on box weight. In
    addition, they are slightly more expensive and
    wider than plastic tapes.

  • 7. Double-Sided Tape

    with pressure-sensitive adhesive. It is intended
    to adhere to both surfaces and works especially

    paint when painting. The tape prevents the paint

  • Filament tape or strapping tape can withstand
    several hundred pounds of pressure. They are
    extremely strong and are frequently used to
    bundle items or reinforce packages

  • Customizing Packaging Tapes
  • Packing tapes can be customized in terms of
    length, width, and thickness, and they can even
    be printed on.
  • The print could be used to add information about
    the contents of the box or handlingfor example,
    a tape that says "fragile" could indicate that
    the box must be handled with care and or it
    could be used for branding.These types of tapes
    are known as fragile tapes.
  • When it comes to appearance, paper tapes are
    either kraft or white. They are ideal for brands
    with earthy tones or monochromatic color schemes.
