This includes rubber adhesive, synthetic rubber (hot melt), and acrylic. Here is a guide to ensure you select the right tape for the job.
Rubber is the most common adhesive as it is high-tack for a medium level of adhesion and superior holding strength. It is suited for general purpose uses and in normal temperature environments. This tape is available in clear and brown and in a myriad of different sizes including different widths as well as hand-held rolls or machine tape rolls.
Synthetic Rubber Adhesive
Synthetic rubber, or hot melt tape, has been created in an effort to preserve its natural alternative. A lot of research has gone into this adhesive to ensure it offers a comparable level of adhesion and tackiness. Like rubber, it is great for general purpose and for use in normal temperature environments. It is also available in a range of sizes including handheld rolls in clear and brown and machine rolls in clear.
This adhesive is specially designed for performance in cold temperatures which makes it great for cold rooms and freezer environments. As the adhesive is designed differently to rubber and hot melt it recommended for lighter cartons and parcels if not being used in a cold temperature. This tape is also available in handheld size in clear and brown and clear machine rolls.
