What is kraft paper tape?

What exactly is solvent-based kraft paper tape?

Solvent-based kraft paper tape is distinguished from acrylic kraft paper tape by its unique property of adhering to itself, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. Moreover, it excels in extreme temperature conditions. Much like acrylic tape, this eco-friendly alternative to plastic tape is favored by those who require robust adhesive tape while being mindful of the environment.

Where is it commonly employed?

This tape boasts long-lasting adhesion and demands minimal pressure during application. It can be effortlessly torn by hand and is available in 25mm, 38mm, and 48mm widths. Solvent brown paper tape finds widespread use in the craft and framing industry, where it is applied to the backs of frames as part of the framing process. Its self-adhesive nature, allowing it to stick to itself, proves invaluable in this context. Hence, it often goes by the names ‘framing tape’ or ‘framers tape.’ Additionally, it’s fully recyclable.

We also offer a white solvent paper tape in 48mm width, which pairs perfectly with our comprehensive range of white postal boxes and white 0201 standard cartons.

Reinforced Tape

What exactly is reinforced tape?

Our standard reinforced paper tape features cross-weave glass filaments, rendering it exceptionally robust and resistant to tearing. It’s an ideal choice for various applications, especially for those seeking both a strong reinforced tape and an environmentally-friendly solution. The standard version is available in 50m rolls.

Where is it typically utilized?

Our durable hot-melt adhesive-based paper Kraft tape offers effective adhesion to keep boxes securely sealed. Its fiber-reinforced construction and tear resistance make it a top choice for businesses prioritizing security. Thanks to its instant adhesion and tamper-evident characteristics, this reinforced brown paper tape is perfect for ensuring the safe transit of heavy or bulky items, preventing damage or tampering. This tape has a thickness of 265mu.

Fragile Paper Tape

As an eco-conscious alternative to our polypropylene and PVC warning printed tapes, our paper printed “FRAGILE” tape offers the same advantages as our polypropylene range, but it’s applied on paper kraft, making it a more cost-effective solution. Suitable for a wide range of applications, this tape is ideal for various purposes and ensures that handlers are aware of packages requiring careful handling, simply by affixing it to the outer packaging.

Thanks to its solvent adhesive, this tape provides enduring adhesion and is easy to apply with minimal pressure. Its self-adhesive nature allows it to stick to itself, enhancing its durability and longevity. This 56gsm tape can be conveniently torn by hand, offering an easy and cost-effective way to convey important messages. It offers instant adhesion without the need for water.

All of our kraft paper tapes are acid-free and 100% vegan-friendly.
