About Kraft Tape

Kraft Tape, also known as paper tape or gummed tape, is a type of adhesive tape that is widely used in packaging and sealing applications. It is made from a strong, natural, and renewable material known as kraft paper, which is derived from wood pulp.

One of the unique features of kraft paper tape is its adhesive activation method. Unlike traditional pressure-sensitive tapes that come with a pre-applied adhesive, paper tape requires water activation. The tape has a dry adhesive backing that becomes sticky when it comes into contact with water. This water-activated adhesive forms a powerful bond with the packaging material, creating a secure and tamper-evident seal.

The primary characteristic of this tape is its excellent strength and durability. Kraft paper is known for its high tear resistance and tensile strength, making it a reliable choice for securing packages. The tape is designed to provide a strong and secure seal, preventing the package from opening during transit or storage.

The water-activated adhesive of paper tape offers several advantages. It provides a permanent seal that cannot be easily opened or tampered with, ensuring the security and integrity of the packaged contents. Additionally, the adhesive penetrates the fibers of the kraft paper and creates a bond that strengthens over time, making it ideal for long-term storage or shipping.

Shield Reinforced Kraft Tape is one of the most popular types of paper tape, manufactured with fiberglass strands within the material. This tape is recommended for heavy-duty shipments.

Non-reinforced Kraft Paper Tape does not contain fiberglass strands, making it ideal as a carton liner or for lightweight loads.

Flat Back Tape does not need a specialized dispenser and can instead be applied by hand, making for a quick and easy seal.

Central Brand Kraft Tape is a popular and highly-regarded brand of paper tape, offering superior adhesion and performance.

Packer’s Pride Tape is another favorite in the packaging industry, delivering a secure seal and great protection.

Super Seal Kraft Tape has a higher-than-average adhesion, making it ideal for your heaviest, most important loads.

Wolverine Tape offers high strength and robust adhesion. This tape optimizes your operations and increases your throughput.

Kraft paper tape is strong, durable, and eco-friendly. Its water-activated adhesive ensures a secure and tamper-evident seal, making it ideal for packaging and sealing applications. Remember that a kraft tape dispenser is required to successfully use most of these products.
