Premium Packing Tape for All Your Shipping Needs

Explore our extensive selection of heavy duty packing tapes at Maxpack, designed for superior performance and reliability. Our parcel tape is good for businesses and people, making sure your packages are safely sealed and protected when shipping. Discover the right tape for your packaging, such as EcoTEK Packing Tape, waterproof packing tape or durable multi-color options.

Packing tape, also called parcel tape or box sealing tape, is important for keeping packages safe during shipping and storage. We have tapes made from different materials like vinyl, PVC, polypropylene, BOPP, polyester, and paper. We choose each material for its special properties to meet packaging needs.

Our tapes stick well because they use strong adhesives like solvent, hot melt, rubber, acrylic, and water-activated gum. This makes sure they stay sealed and bonded in any situation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between polypropylene packing tape and PVC packing tape?

Polypropylene tape is typically more affordable and excellent for general packing needs due to its flexibility and strong adhesion. PVC tape offers superior strength and durability, making it ideal for heavy-duty packaging and shipping requirements.

Can we recycle packing tape?

Certain types of packing tape can be recycled, depending on the materials used. Paper tapes are generally recyclable along with cardboard boxes. You should remove tapes made from plastics like PVC or BOPP from boxes before recycling the box itself.

What should I look for in eco-friendly packing tape?

Choose packing tape made from recycled materials, eco-friendly substances, or water-activated adhesive to help the environment. Our EcoTEK packing tape, for instance, has a smaller core to reduce waste and is made from recycled content.

What are the advantages of using printed packing tape?

Printed packing tape not only secures your packages but also enhances your brand visibility. It can show instructions like “Fragile” or “Handle with Care,” or messages and logos for marketing.

Is there a standard size for packing tape?

Packing tape typically comes in several widths, with 48mm (about 2 inches) being the most common. However, the size needed can vary based on the package size and weight. Our range includes everything from narrow, light-duty tape to wide, heavy-duty tape.

w does the core size of a packing tape roll affect usage?

The core size can impact the amount of tape on the roll and the size of dispensers that can be used. Smaller cores, like our 25mm EcoTEK tape, allow more tape per roll, which can reduce frequency of changes and decrease waste.

What colour packing tape should I use?

You can choose the color of packing tape to match the branding or for practical purposes. Brown or clear tapes are good for packaging, while red or blue tapes can help identify or prioritize shipments.

How strong is paper packing tape compared to synthetic materials?

Paper packing tape is extremely strong because of its reinforced design and water-activated adhesive. It is just as strong as many synthetic tapes. Particularly popular for its environmental benefits and for securing lightweight to medium-weight packages.

Can we use packing tape for international shipments?

Yes, packing tape is suitable for international shipments. Choose a good quality tape that can handle different temperatures and rough handling. We recommend using reinforced tapes or those with strong adhesives like hot melt or solvent for added security.
