What is packaging tape and what is packaging tape used for?
Integral to the packaging process, packaging tape secures cardboard boxes and other packaging to keep it secure and protected during transit. It’s usually strong and durable to withstand movement, moisture, and temperature changes.
What are our tapes made of?
We sell a variety of different tapes so that you can choose the best one for the package you’re sending. This includes paper tape, gummed tape, and plastic tape so that you can select the right one for you.
What types of adhesive tape are available?
Printed warning tapeWhen sending fragile goods, those handling the package need to be extra careful. Warning tape alerts couriers and postal workers that the goods inside should be moved with care. Our warning tape is made from low noise polypropylene, which is weather resistant, and can be used with a handheld tape dispenser.
Crossweave tapeFor extra peace of mind, crossweave tape is reinforced to provide tear resistance and therefore keep the contents of your parcel more secure. It’s also no stretch and should be used for UN certified packaging as part of regulatory compliance, as it’s certified for sealing goods or packages that are hazardous or dangerous. Crossweave tape can be used with a tape dispenser too - handy!
Packing tapeThis economical low-noise clear and brown packing tape is ideal for sealing everyday packages, keeping them secure in transit and weather resistant. Packing tape is available in three strengths: up to 40kg, up to 60kg, and up to 80kg, ensuring that you get the right one for your package’s weight.
Crossweave paper tapeCrossweave paper tape is strong, robust, and super adhesive, making it an excellent way to package your products in a way that will protect them on their journey. Composed of reinforced backing and crossweave of strong synthetic fibres, it is tear resistant and can easily withstand the rigours of handling.
Gummed paper tapeRequiring water to activate the adhesive gum, this paper tape is best used from a tape dispenser to provide a 100% recyclable, plastic free alternative to traditional packaging tape. We’d recommend gummed paper tape for international packages due to its strength and moisture resistance.
Machine tapeAutomatic taping machines provide ultimate efficiency when it comes to packaging your goods, and our durable machine tape can be used in conjunction with these. Our polypropylene machine tape is robust and all-purpose, suitable for fixing paper, board and plastics.
Adhesive paper tapeRecyclable, biodegradable and easy to tear; there’s lots to love about our adhesive paper tape. It’s an eco-friendly option for packaging your goods, particularly when applied to cardboard from a tape dispenser. It’s worth noting that we don’t chlorinate or bleach our adhesive paper tape.
Handheld tape dispensersSay goodbye to fiddling around with scissors and the bits of tape that get stuck together and fall by the wayside; handheld tape dispensers make packaging easy. It’s easy to use, simple to load with a variety of tape sizes, and you’ll get evenly distributed tape every time.
