Filament or strapping tapes to use for bundling, packaging, palletizing, carton or box closure. Many brands available, such as Intertape, Shurtape, and Cantech. In this category, we also offer appliance tape, which is great for applications where clean removal is desired. These non-staining products are super strong and great for electronics and appliance packaging. We also have both bi-directional filament tape and paper-backed filament tape that can be custom slit from logs to any size needed for just one case minimums. Call us with your specific need.
In choosing filament tapes, there are few characteristics you will want to consider to best fit the right product to suit your needs. Economy grade filament tapes (lowest cost), like our Cantech 179 are typically made with a polypropylene film and fewer glass filaments that give them a tensile strength of 110 lbs./in. width or less. These are really meant for light weight palletizing and bundling or for L-clips in lightweight packages. General purpose filament tapes, like our Shurtape GS500, have a tensile strength of 130 - 150 lbs. or so. They are able to handle more strenuous applications because of the extra glass filaments and added thickness over the economy grade versions. These products have high adhesion levels. The high performance and premium grade filament tapes are usually made with a polyester backing and many strong glass filaments that give them a tensile strength of 200 -300 lbs. These would be used for the most demanding applications. Please give us a call if you are unsure of the proper product to use. We will be happy to recommend products and even provide free samples for testing. We can provide the full line of filament tapes from manufacturers like Shurtape, Cantech, and Intertape, as well as, private label products that can be custom slit to size.
