About 48mm Packaging Tape

Also known as '2 inch tape', 48mm packaging tape is the most widely used size of tape in the UK as it can accommodate a wide variety of sealing requirements. Perfect for sealing cartons, boxes, bags and packages it provides a secure seal for items in storage and in transit.

There is more to tape than you think, and as the UK's premier supplier of packaging, Kite has ensured our customers have a wide variety to choose from. All tape is sold in boxes of 36 rolls.

Available in clear or brown (brown tape is also known as "buff tape").

Tape is identified by the following:

  • The Carrier – Polypropylene or PVC, this is the backing material of the tape. PVC is hand-tearable and a premium backing, whereas polypropylene requires a dispenser and is more commonly used for general purpose.
  • The Adhesive – Acrylic, Hotmelt, or Solvent, this is the part that makes it stick! Certain adhesives are better for certain atmospheres or temperatures.
  • The Core Size – Most tapes come on a 76mm core, however our 150m long Envirotape comes on a 38mm core – to save costs and reduce environmental impact
