See how we use standard and reinforced paper kraft tape

We sell two types of paper kraft tape, standard which can be used for a wide range of applications where sealing is required and reinforced, which has cross weave glass filaments offering that extra bit of security as it is extremely difficult to tear. Standard kraft paper tape comes with an acrylic or solvent adhesive, the difference being that acrylic is used for general sealing applications, whereas solvent sticks to itself and works better in extreme temperatures. Both can be torn by hand and have a strong stick to cartons. Standard kraft paper tape is the ideal low-cost solution for many industries, including retail, framing, warehousing and fulfilment companies. Reinforced kraft paper tape is made with extra strong cross weave glass filaments, meaning it can be extremely difficult to tamper with, offering that extra bit of security when required. Once applied, the tape creates a strong bond that is difficult to tear off. This makes it ideal when shipping high value or sensitive goods.
