American Packaging offers a full line of Pressure-Sensitive Carton-Sealing Tape (industrial packing tape) with all three adhesive technologies as well as water activated tape.
Acrylic Carton Sealing Tape (also known as pressure-sensitive tape,) is best suited for reliable, all-temperature box sealing performance (less than 40°F and greater than 120°F) where resistance to aging, weathering, UV light, and yellowing are important Hot Melt Packing Tape offers the widest range of application flexibility available. All styles in the line offer excellent processing performance whether manually (tape gun) or with packaging automation. Their superior adhesion properties, holding force, tensile strength, and easy unwind ensure consistent, reliable seals to a variety of corrugated and linerboard boxes.
Natural rubber tape (packing tape, pressure-sensitive carton sealing tape) has one of the most aggressive adhesives available. All styles in the line offer fast, positive bonding on “problem” applications such as high-recycled content cartons, rough or ultra-smooth cartons, heavy ink coverage, dusty and/or dirty environments, humid conditions and temperature extremes.
Water-activated tape (gummed paper tape, gum tape, kraft paper tape) bonds instantly to both virgin and recycled fiber surfaces and therefore, generate an immediate destructive bond resulting in a tamper evident package.
