Packaging Tape Terms
Tensile Strength
(Breaking Strength)

The force required to break a piece of tape by pulling on opposite ends of the piece of tape.


Shear Adhesion
(Holding Power)

The ability of a tape to resist the forces of gravity and rough handling. High shear adhesion assures that heavy boxes will remain securely sealed, despite rough handling during shipping or moving.


Thickness:
(Measured in Millimeters)

The total thickness of the tape, which combines the backing and adhesive thicknesses (1 mm = 0.039").


Acrylic Packaging Tape
