OPP Packaging Tape – PRCLR48/50 – Clear
OPP packaging tape is also known as Carton / Box Sealing Tape is a pressure-sensitive tape used for closing or sealing corrugated fiberboard boxes. It consists of a pressure-sensitive adhesive which is oriented to have strength in both the long (machine) direction and the cross direction.
A “single strip” or “center seam” closure is applied over the center seams of a box extending 50 to 75 millimetres (2 to 3 in) onto the end panels.
The tape can be used as a “six-strip” closure or “H-seal” by applying cross strips on the ends of the box. This is done when extra box reinforcement is needed. This method also seals the box to help keep contaminants out.
OPP Packaging Tapes can be applied manually with a stationary dispenser but is more often applied with a hand-held tape dispenser: this allows the user to more efficiently place the tape on the box, cut it off, and rub it down.
OPP Packaging Tapes are available in Brown (Buff) and Clear
