Multi purpose Packing Tape

Packing tape is also known as parcel tape and box-sealing tape which is a pressure sensitive tape commonly used to seal light to medium weight packages. Usually measuring 48 mm( 2”) or 72mm (3”) wide, it is most often used to seal closed cardboard boxes along the seams to ensure the contents within the package remain within. Packing tape can also be used to seal around the edges of your package to keep out unwanted contaminants. Additional strength can be achieved by applying cross strips at the ends of cardboard boxes (this method is commonly referred to as a “H-seal”). Pressure sensitive tape is usually applied by hand, or for more efficient application it can be used with our hand held tape dispensers. Simply apply a small amount of pressure to surface of the tape and rub over to activate the sticky adhesive. There is no need for additional solvents or sprays to activate the adhesive.

Clear tape is a perfect alternative if brown tape is something that is not suitable. The brown tape may look unsightly when used on white or light coloured boxes. Similarly it can mask important information such as logistical and delivery information on your packages making them difficult to view/read. The clear packing tape is see through allowing the information on the packing visible to the naked eye without removing the adhesive tape. Priced at the same cost as our brown tape, our clear packing tape is the perfect solution for all your general purpose packing and sealing tasks both in the home and business.

For fast and efficient application our clear tape can be used with our high quality tape dispensers. The clear tape adheres to its surface as well as its brown tape alternative by way of a pressure sensitive adhesive which requires no solvents or sprays to activate, simply apply light pressure and the clear tape will easily stick to its surface with little or no effort.

What is Scotch Tape?

Scotch tape is a trademark and brand name of the manufacturer 3M. It is basically a pressure sensitive self adhesive tape, very much like regular general purpose packing tape but branded and sold under this name by the US based manufacturer.

Very much like the popular vacuum manufacturer Hoover, the Scotch name is sometimes used as a generic term. Contrary to popular belief, Scotch tape is not from Scotland and actually derives it name from the word “stingy”.

In the 1920’s a young lab technician named Richard Drew landed a job at a sandpaper company named Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing (later rebranded as 3M) and found an interesting challenge whilst talking to customers in the automotive industry. Two tone car body paint was popular in the 1920’s and 30’s, where the top half of a car was painted in one colour and the bottom half another. Whilst out delivering samples of sand paper to clients in the automotive industry Drew was intrigued by the challenge faced by the car body shops who were struggling to find a solution that kept the first layer of paint separated from the second layer without damaging the paint work. The painters were often left with sticky residue which was difficult to clean off and would often result in a repaint.

Drew took it upon himself to find a solution similar to what we have come to know today as “masking tape”. Initially he experimented with the glues used for the construction of sandpaper at 3M, the first batches of tape were given to the painters who (let’s say less than politely) told Drew that his tape was scotch or too “stingy” on the adhesive. Following further experiments he added more adhesive and cheekily branded the new tape as Scotch.

We sell a number of tapes similar to the entire line of 3M tapes branded under the Scotch name. This includes masking tape, general purpose packing tape sellotape amongst a host of other pressure sensitive tapes.
