Does Plastic Tape Really Stick?

Thought the carton was sealed?  Tape pops off the carton without any force?  Is your environment dirty or dusty?  Dust inhibits poly tapes from sticking to the carton surface.  Gummed tape will absorb dust and still stick! 

Do a test.  Take your cartons sealed with poly tape and "tap" or "pop" the flaps.  If the tape separates from the flap, you are subjecting your products to loss and/or theft.

Extreme temperature changes also affect poly tapes.  A little heat will cause tape to separate from the box!  Some poly tapes are also time sensitive.  The longer a carton sits on the shelf, the more possible the tape will break down.

If you require well sealed cartons gummed tape is your best bet.  Check out our "Benefits of gummed tape" by clicking here.  The page is long but informative.
