Whether you’re packing to move house or packing office supplies, there is no denying that it can prove a bit tedious without the right clear tape. With many boxes to wrap up – and with most of us having experienced improperly packed boxes leading to breakages – you shouldn’t cut corners with your tape supplier. At Office catch, we aim to provide all clients with big clear tape that can meet the strenuous requirements of their box-packing. But have you ever wondered what makes good tape good? And why you should opt for a reputable supplier instead of just the first option you find? We have the answers for you right here..
Why Having Strong Clear Packing Tape is Important
Let’s face facts, the last thing anyone wants is weak tape. We’ve all had that experience using tape only for it to fail at its one singular purpose: keeping itself together. Some tape doesn’t even stick to all surfaces properly, making it less desirable. So, why should you opt for strong tape? Does it provide more than face-value strength?
Strong tape should have a variety of properties that make it beneficial. The first – and most obvious – is a high weight resistance. Arguably the one reason people use tape is to close off the bottom of boxes or to wrap things together. Having the tape separate off the box or group of things you want to keep together – or worse yet, having the tape tear in two – is the best reason to throw it out. What good is tape if it can’t meet its main requirement?
Assisting in the tape’s ability to meet weight resistance demands is how long the adhesive remains sticky. Many glues are meant for specific purposes only. Water-soluble glue, for example is not meant to encounter water as this will effectively dissolve the glue. Similarly, you don’t want packing tape that uses cheap glue, as any manner of things might undo the adhesive, leaving the tape useless.
Since we mentioned that you DON’T want water soluble glue on packing tape, we should also mention that you DO want clear waterproof tape. Whether you’re moving boxes and an unexpected rainfall starts, or you need to tape something that you know for certain will come into contact with water, the clear adhesive tape shouldn’t lose strength because of it. So, make sure you get waterproof tape and save yourself from future headaches.
What Else Do You Want from Your Clear Adhesive Tape
Aside from reliable strength, lasting adhesive, and waterproof properties, you want tape in the right measurements and an option for clear packing tape in bulk if possible. At Office Catch we can meet all these requirements. We have a variety of pack sizes – 6, 12, 36, 72 -available for you to select and often provide discounts for our clients who buy online. Make sure to keep an eye on our store for reliable access to heavy-duty clear tape that makes your packing that much simpler.
