There are basically two types of packaging tape, box sealing tape and filament strapping tape. 3m 3710 box sealing tape is a strong film tape that conforms to box surfaces for a consistent uniform seal with no water or sticky cleanup. Thih tape is ideal for light to medium duty package taping. Film backing is conformable and hot melt adhesive means reliable package closure.
3m 3750 packaging tape is a strong film tape that is great for box sealing, recouperage, fiber drum sealing and other more heavy duty packaging and taping applications. Hot melt synthetic rubber resin adhesive means consistent seal. Resists center seam splittinng, seals out moisture, dirt, and dust. Filament strapping tape features high performance polypropylene backing reinforced with glass filaments. Strapping tape offers 170 lb/inch width tensile strength for light to medium duty bundling, reinforcing, and pallet-making. Great shear strength, and initial and long term adhesion. Glass filaments reinforce tape for reliable strength.
