Secure packages with filament tape
Deliver reliable packaging solutions with filament tape. You can find options in various grades, widths, and thicknesses to suit your application needs and preferences. When paired with poly bubble mailers, the waterproof composition of filament tapes helps protect the contents against moisture intrusion. Filament strapping tape offers varying levels of adhesion using three common types of pressure-sensitive adhesives. Natural rubber adhesives provide maximum sticking power and bond to most surfaces. Ensure a tight seal on padded mailers with this type of adhesive, which performs well in rough conditions. For quick adhesion on steel and plastic surfaces, filament tapes with synthetic rubber adhesives offer a better choice. Acrylic options come in clear color to ensure graphics and bar codes remain visible for easy identification.
Choose the right type of filament strapping tape
Packing tapes depend on their backing material for tensile strength, which ranges from 100 to 600 pounds per inch of width. Most filament strapping tape comes with a propylene backing in either monoaxial or biaxial orientations. One-way tape contains fiberglass reinforcement in one direction to withstand high stresses along its length. Designed to handle extreme thermal fluctuations, single-woven filament tape also provides shock and impact resistance. This makes it ideal for unitizing pallet loads or binding pipes prior to shipment. For more heavy-duty applications, users may find cross-woven 3M filament tape more suitable for their needs. Continuous glass yarn filaments run in both directions for added durability. Apply bi-directional filament tape to close and reinforce corrugated boxes or to patch holes in shipping containers.
Other uses of filament tape
The versatility of filament tape helps streamline operations and production processes. Aside from bundling and strapping purposes, several other uses of filament tape in industrial applications include:
- Coil tabbing or splicing: Superior adhesive performance withstands spring forces to keep metal coils from unwinding
- L-clip closures: High shear strength resists breakage to seal full overlap boxes or five panel folders
- Temporary holding: High initial tack adheres to most surfaces then peels off easily for minimal cleanup
In the appliance industry, filament tapes also stabilize loose or moving parts during transport or storage. Explore Quill’s selection of filament tapes and mailing supplies to maintain high efficiency in shipping facilities, warehouses, retail stores, and offices.
