HOMECarton Sealing Tapes

Carton Sealing Tapes

Carton sealing tapes are made to last, retain adhesiveness, and are suitable for warehouse packaging due to the stronger bonds they provide.

Acrylic Tape is transparent and will not obstruct the prints, become yellow or display visual changes from age or sun exposure. Its strong bond makes it suitable for warehouse packaging.

Hot Melt Tape provides a stronger bond, seals faster and takes less time to apply than acrylic tape. It also resists tearing, scuffing and exposure to some chemicals. It can be used for bulk packaging, rough surfaces and edging.

Both are available in various colors, including clear and tan.

Temperature

Hot melt and acrylic tapes are functional in cold and hot temperatures. Hot melt tape works well in temperatures ranging from 45 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit, while acrylic tape can be applied in temperatures ranging from 32 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. These tapes may not adhere to your packages outside of these temperatures.

Cost

Acrylic tape is more affordable than hot melt tape. Economy-grade acrylic tape provides a strong, long lasting seal and is thinner and less expensive than other types of acrylic tape. It should not be used for heavy boxes and may not perform as well as other tapes in environments with fluctuating temperature. The price of hot melt tape is dependant on thickness and size. Heavy-duty or premium-grade hot melt tape is more expensive than economy and general-grade tape and suitable for sealing heavy loads.
