We stock three types of buff packaging tapes two of which are made of polypropylene and one of which is made from P.V.C (poly vinyl chloride) P.V.C. tape is offen called Vinyl tape. All the rolls have widths of 48mm and length of 66m.

When using self adhesive tape it is worth bearing in mind that some adhesives work better the longer they are left so that the adhesive can migrate to the surface to which it is applied.

Tape Characteristics and Adhesives
Polypropylene with hotmelt adhesive. This is a good all round general purpose tape and adhesive. The tape has good tensile strength and the hot melt adhesive is good in most environments and adheres well to most surfaces. Because of the nature of the hot melt adhesive and surface of the tape that the adhesive is wound onto as the adhesive releases from the roll there is a cracking noise generated, so this tape cannot be described as low noise. Please also note that this tape releases very easily from itself. This is not because that poor adhesive is used it is simply the relationship between the adhesive and the surface of the tape that it is wound onto. For this reason where tape gun dispensers are used it is better to use a dispenser with a clutch to put retention in the release of the tape from the roll. Like all polypropylene tape it is not easy to tear so for volume use a tape gun dispenser is recommended. But for low volume use a saftey cutter or knife of some description is adequate.

Polypropylene with acrylic adhesive (low noise). This is a good general purpose tape and adhesive. The tape has good tensile strength and the acrylic adhesive is good in most environments and adheres well to most surfaces and is particulary effective on less porous surfaces such as polythenes. As the acrylic adhesive used on this tape releases from the surface of the tape that the adhesive is wound onto there is a reduced level of cracking noise generated. This means the tape is branded as low noise. This tape releases with a little resistance and can be used easily with or without a tape gun dispenser. Like all polypropylene tape it is not easy to tear so for volume use a tape gun dispenser is recommended. But for low volume use a saftey cutter or knife of some description is adequate

P.V.C (poly vinyl chloride) P.V.C. tape is often called Vinyl tape. This tape stands alone in the world of packaging tape. It is a good heavy tape with a rubber based adhesive and fills you with confidence when you are using it. It has a hard release so it actually has to be pulled off the roll. It does not tear easily but you can actually tear it across its width. For this reason it works well with or without a tape dispenser gun.
