Seal your cartons and export boxes fast with our secure paper tape
Our range of paper tape is a perfect choice for neatly and securely sealing boxes and cartons for your shipping and storage of goods. Our paper tape for boxes is available in widths of 50 – 75mm and lengths of 50 – 200 metres, is water-resistant and works well in humid conditions, so it is an ideal choice for a range of industries from ecommerce to packaging export products. Suitable for quickly sealing boxes, our self-adhesive brown paper tape, and gummed paper tape is also becoming more popular to be incorporated into the design and look of parcels and goods by enhancing packages to improve customer satisfaction when the parcel is received, and to also create brand awareness.
The tape not only achieves the main task of keeping parcels closed with a neat, firm flush seal – now more importantly it can also offer an aesthetic finish for the overall presentation, adding customer value to any brand. With a long-lasting natural based adhesive and an eco friendly alternative to plastic tapes it can also be recycled with the rest of the carton packaging, perfect for businesses building on its eco responsible credentials. Paper tape provides instant adhesion and can easily be torn by hand to apply, although we recommend using a packaging tape dispenser for a professional cut.
Gummed paper tape is a strong paper tape available for your heavy duty goods, providing extra strength and added security. Gummed paper tape is resistant to temperature changes and the gum adhesive secures instantly to the cardboard, making it ideal for storing goods in warehouses and offices, for shipping and we recommend using it for the export of goods. This high resistant box packaging paper tape uses water to activate the adhesion, the water on the gum starts the bonding process to form the strong permanent seal between the kraft paper of the cardboard box and the paper tape for packing. Whilst this process not only makes the tape application instant and firm it can also offer the added benefit of revealing any signs of tampering to your packages during transit, or when in storage. For more choice, we also stock an extra strong reinforced packaging tape with an integrated glass fibre cross-weave, ideal for larger and heavier loads. Plus, we have a range of paper tape dispensers suited for both warehouses and small businesses that will help improve packaging efficiency to speed any packing process.
