Standard Packaging Tapes

Standard Packaging Tapes

We stock the standard range of Brown and Clear packaging tapes that are most commonly used in packing areas across the country. We grade our tapes in three standard ranges those being economy, mid-range and premium grade.

  • Polypropylene tape is the cheapest tape to purchase as is generally the thinnest and has the least amount of adhesive applied to the tape. It is suitable for lighter duty applications such as sealing bags and taping bubble wrap together.
  • Low noise tape “PRIMA” branded is our mid-range grade which is very versatile and can be used for nearly all applications. A tape dispenser must be used with the low noise as it does not tear by hand
  • Vinyl tape “PRIMA” branded our best everyday packaging tape with the strongest adhesive and suitable for nearly every general packaging application. It can be torn by hand so there is no need to use a dispenser if you prefer not to.

Standard Packaging Tapes

'PRIMA' tape is manufactured in Italy and is renowned for its quality. We prefer to stock a tape which we know will not give you the customer problems with peeling or shredding. Replacing faulty tape is time consuming for both you and us. We have been stocking 'PRIMA' for well over 10 years and that speaks volumes for the consistency. If you would like to try a sample please contact the sales office.

Floor Marking Tape

Keep your walkways and designated storage areas clearly defined with our floor marking tape. We can also supply the dispenser as shown below for ease of application. The tape has a high tack adhesive and is easier to apply than having to paint the warehouse floor. We can supply a range of colours, plain or with the Hazard stripe. Please contact us for prices.

Double Sided Tape & Speciality Tapes

With so many applications for tape in the market it is impossible for us to stock a tape for every purpose. We are able to source and supply speciality tapes for all applications if we are given a brief by you as to its purpose and the application. It might be a permanent fixture that is outside subject to all weathers or a temporary solution that needs to be removed without leaving messy residues. Please contact us with your specific details and we will be able to offer samples and a solution to suit.

Gummed Paper Tapes

Gummed Paper Tape is worth considering to alternative to regular filmic tapes. If you seal corrugated cartons and containers you may well find you are able to save money and operate more efficiently.

  • Strong - It forms an integral bond with the carton where the water activated fibres in the tape combine with the carton board forming a very strong seal.
  • Tamper Evidence - It cannot be removed without leaving a trace unlike some regular packing tapes
  • 100% Recyclable - It is made from 100% renewable sources which makes recycling easier as it does not have to be removed before processing. The Green alternative.
  • Temperature Tolerant - In extreme temperatures the tape characteristics remain constant unlike some filmic tapes which do not perform as well in temperature extremes.
  • Improved Presentation - Paper tape blends with the natural look of the carton and does not ripple, one strip top and bottom is very neat. Printing is also an option.
  • Cost Saving - In most instances it is cheaper per linear metre than most regular tapes and especially as you only require one strip.
  • Increased Productivity - Applied with a professional dispenser every length of tape is cut the same every time and dispensed faster than using regular tape guns. Application time is reduced due to only needing one strip top and bottom.
Please contact the office for further information a range of the various gummed tape dispensers can be seen in the Optimax catalogue.
