  • BOPP or Biaxially Oriented Poly Propylene Film – a method of film manufacturing for better tensile strength and moisture resistance
  • Hot Melt Adhesive the adhesive in Hot Melt Tapes is specially developed to offer superior holding power making them ideal for packing Shipping Boxes with heavier contents
  • Release Coating a layer of special coating applied to BOPP to facilitate an easier unwinding

The strength of the adhesive in the Hot Melt Tapes along with their instant sealing properties has made them the best Packing Tapes for sealing over-weight and odd-shaped Shipping Boxes. However, it is important to note that as strong as the Hot Melt Tapes are they are sensitive to overly hot or cold temperatures.
