What is Carton Sealing TApe?
Carton sealing tape (also known as box-sealing tape or packing tape) is a pressure-sensitive adhesive tape used in packaging or shipping workflows to properly close corrugated boxes to help protect products during shipping or storage.
Carton Sealing Tape Elements
Packing tape features a backing material oftene made from polypropylene or polyester film to give it strength and a pressure-sensitive adhesive coated on the backing which sticks to the box when applied.
Common Sizes of Carton Sealing Tape
Carton sealing tape (CST) is most commonly 48 mm (roughly 2 inches) or 72 mm (nearly 3 inch) wide.
Types of Carton Sealing Tape
Acrylic Carton Sealing Tape (also known as pressure-sensitive tape, packing tape, clear packaging tape) is best suited for reliable, all-temperature box sealing performance (less than 40°F and greater than 120°F) where resistance to aging, weathering, UV light and yellowing are important. They also provide excellent clarity, high shear strength to prevent “flagging”, superior quick stick performance and controlled unwind to facilitate dispensing on manual or automatic case sealing machines.
With hot melt carton sealing tapes, a thermoplastic adhesive, also known as hot glue, provides a significantly higher adhesion in comparison to an acrylic tape. This style of tape can be used either manually (with a tape gun) or through autuomated application via a carton sealing machine.
Consider a natural rubber carton sealing tape when you need a tape that quickly forms a strong bond, in situations when case sealing on an irregular surfaces, in environments with high humidity, or in extreme temperatures of 0-150 degrees. Rubber based products grab very aggressively initially and are well-suited for long-term packaging applications.
