It's time for you to decide if paper packing tape is the best!
Paper tape has 3 major advantages over other packaging tapes. If it's the best tape for your package and your business may not conclude with the same answer. Let's see what you decide.
Here are the 3 advantages that make paper tape the best packaging tape.
Paper packing tape has the strongest bond.
Water-activated paper tape gets its strength from the adhesive soaking into the fiberboard materials of the box. This makes a mono-material between the tape and the cardboard. When using recycled boxes, this is the recommended tape due to its texture.
If you're shipping packages over 50 lbs, kraft paper tape with fiber-reinforcement will have the greatest strength! Heavy items are expensive to ship, so just don't risk them opening, use a fiber-reinforced tape!
Paper tapes create a tamper resistant seal.
For valuable packages using kraft paper tape with fiber-reinforcement will make it considerably more difficult for someone to punch/tear their way into the box. Fiber-reinforcement is also recommended for long packages which tend to be weaker in the center and have a high chance of opening during the tough shipping environment.
Paper tapes are recyclable and biodegradable.
Kraft paper tape and fiber-reinforced kraft paper tape are both recyclable! During the recycling process the fiberglass strands are able to be removed from the paper component. Recycling centers have an advanced process to recover the greatest percentage of reusable materials. They are efficiently able to filter out acrylic tape, paper tape, fiberglass strands, shipping labels, staples, stickers and much more that is regularly found on used packages.
