Scotch's packaging tapes are designed to securely close a wide variety of heavy-weight boxes and feature a polypropylene film backing with a synthetic rubber adhesive to deliver conformability under stress. They can easily unwind and resist abrasion, moisture and scuffing, hence can be utilised on high-speed automated packaging lines. They also have a high edge tear and split resistance and can withstand temperatures up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. The brand's tape dispensers come with a pistol-grip design that allows the operator to tack, roll, buff and tear tape in one fluid motion. Their adjustable, hub-mounted brake controls the tension and provides effective sealing along the box seam, preventing waste.

SCOTCH Competitive Advantages

Comply Technology

The innovative technology has a micro-replicated pattern (multiple air release channels) embossed onto the liner that resembles a 'waffle structure'. These channels allow the air to get extracted and not get trapped between the film and the surface, thus providing a fast, easy and bubble-free installation. This pressure-activated adhesive conforms to flat surfaces, simple / compound curves and corrugations, allowing easy sliding, tacking, snapping and repositioning for a seamless application.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Scotch Magic tape and transparent tape?

Scotch transparent tape has glossy finish, while Scotch Magic tape is frosty on the roll but invisible on paper, making it perfect for writing with a pencil or pen.

Are packaging tapes waterproof / weatherproof?

Scotch packaging tapes can withstand a moderate amount of moisture for a short period but are not designed to hold for long & harsh weather conditions.

How to refill a packaging tape dispenser?

  • Remove the old tape core. Place the new roll of tape on the large roller and press down properly. Ensure that the sticky side of the tape is facing down.
  • Gently pull the tape over the guide bar (near the handle) and under the second, smaller roller.
  • Pull the tape against the serrated edge and start taping items.

Does the Scotch laminating machine have any energy-saving features?

Selected models of thermal laminators have a built-in auto shut-off feature that turns off automatically after one hour of non-use, thus conserving energy.
