Filament, or strapping, tape is a high-tensile strength pressure sensitive adhesive tape commonly used to seal packages. At Tape Jungle, we offer filament tape for all shipping and packaging needs.
What is Filament Tape?
Also known as strapping tape, filament tape is a polypropylene backed pressure sensitive adhesive tape reinforced with fiberglass strands that can add hundreds of pounds of additional tensile strength. This is considerable holding power for even the heaviest packaging applications but easy enough to use for your everyday shipping needs. The tape can be converted to any width between ⅜” (9mm) and 58.5” (1360mm) but most popular sizes are 1” (24mm) and 2” (48mm).
How is Filament Tape Used?
Filament Tape can be used with traditional hand-held or tabletop dispensers or even with automated machines for industrial warehouses.
The primary application for filament tape is as carton sealing tape, closing corrugated cardboard boxes. The extra tensile strength provides added protection for packages in transit and can be used to repair damaged or broken boxes.
