Packaging tape

Seal and secure every time by picking the right packaging tape

Boasting various sizes, widths and colours, high-quality packaging tape from RAJA is worth sticking with. Utilising a strong packaging tape is essential for any business that regularly needs to send out cartons or cardboard boxes securely. Tape for packaging is different from your regular office Sellotape: it’s designed to be more long-lasting thanks to the stronger bonding agent, meaning it sticks better to your packages. We stock a range of tapes, including economical polypropylene tape, and low-noise tapes that are perfect for smaller spaces where sound can be an irritation.

From sealing boxes to even marking out your warehouse, there is a tape for almost any product or purpose. And with such a wide array of varying types of packaging tape, it’s easy to get overwhelmed as you try to pick the right one. But there are a few key features to look at that can make it much easier.

How to choose the right tape?

The first thing you need to ask yourself is why do you need tape? What do you need it to accomplish? The weight of your package, the material of the box, and the storage conditions it will be in during transit are all important details that will influence your decision. For heavier packages and items, pay attention to packaging tape sizes. A thicker tape – measured in microns – is generally more reliable.

When looking at the next two factors, you need to look at the adhesive. A PVC adhesive is your typical tape, and one you’ll see in most post-room environments. It provides strong and stable adhesion and is best suited for lighter packages. Acrylic tape suffers no loss of adhesion over time, making it ideal for longer term storage. And finally, synthetic rubber hot melt tape provides instant bonding, and is the strongest type of adhesive.

Other factors to take note of when you choose your tape is ease of use, how it looks, and if you need a desired level of security. Sending packages with aesthetically pleasing printed tape is an easy and cost-effective way to build confidence in your brand with your customers.

How do I apply the tape?

Once you’ve found the right packaging tape, you need to know how to properly seal and secure your goods. If you’re frequently needing to apply tape, you should seriously consider a tape dispenser to save you time during busier periods.

Make sure the surface you’re applying the tape on is clean and dry, and the ambient temperature of the area is around room temperature (18°C). The apply light pressure to the tape, and let it bond to the surface properly. For cold environments, a tape with a natural rubber adhesive would be best. If you’re in a warmer environment, an acrylic glue would be more effective.
