Oftentimes, tape is viewed as an insignificant decision – a means to an end for delivery of finished goods. So, manufacturers may be prone to “cheap out” for a lower price.

But, you may find yourself in a situation where “you get what you pay for.” Quality is extremely important to ensuring a good seal and efficient productivity. Good packaging tapes are easy to unwind, have good adhesion to the corrugated surface, and deliver the strength and durability needed to withstand the distribution network.

They may be a little more expensive in the short term, but the long term impact of using a better, more reliable tape will ultimately hit the bottom line by increasing productivity, reducing rework, reducing tape waste, product damage and more.
