Tape Application

In order for the tape too adhere to product correctly, it is recommended that a tape gun is used for application. By applying pressure and rolling with the tape gun, the tape will fully stick to the corrugate. If the tape is applied by hand, the tape will not stick and will peel off easily.

Tape Sizes

NOTE: All shelf lives are based on room temperature storage.

Hot Melt

Hot melt tape has greater adhesion to corrugate in comparison to acrylic tape. Hot melt is ideal for shipping or short
term storage. This tape, once stuck to itself, cannot be unstuck and tears off. Hot melt is ideal for medium-weight
cartons. The shelf life for 30mic+ is 2-2.5 years.

Acrylic

Acrylic tape can withstand a greater temperature range, as well as a larger range of humidity. Acrylic tape is more ideal
for long term storage. This tape can unstick from itself with ease, and no tearing occurs. Acrylic is ideal for light to
medium-weight cartons. Acrylic tape is UV resistant, and will not lose its colour when exposed to sunlight for extended
periods of time. The shelf life for 30mic+ is 2-2.5 years.

PVC

PVC tape is more expensive but offers an even stronger adhesion. This tape is extremely durable and has the longest shelf life at 4 years. This is the highest quality tape offered on this list. PVC is ideal for medium-weight cartons.

Water Activated

Water activated (also known as Gummed) tapes will not adhere until the adhesive side is exposed to water, due to the adhesive being water-based. The tape is also tamper-resistant and tamper-evident. Water tape is ideal for medium-weight cartons. The shelf life is 1 year.
