Top Tips for Preparing a Surface for Packing Tape
Preparing a surface before applying packing tape can help ensure that the tape adheres properly and provides a secure hold. Here are the top tips for preparing a surface for packing tape:
Clean the surface: The surface where the tape will be applied should be clean and free of dust, dirt, and debris. Use a clean cloth or paper towel to wipe the surface and remove any residue.
Dry the surface: Make sure the surface is completely dry before applying tape. Any moisture or dampness can prevent the tape from adhering properly.
Ensure a solid surface: Avoid using packages with surface damage in the areas tape would be applied. This could happen when removing old tape to reuse a box. This will help the tape adhere more securely and prevent it from peeling or lifting.
Apply the tape: Apply the packing tape smoothly and evenly to the surface, pressing firmly to ensure a strong hold. Avoid stretching or over-applying the tape, as this can cause it to lose its adhesive properties.
By following these simple tips, you can help ensure that your packing tape adheres properly and provides a secure hold, keeping your package safe and secure during shipping.
