Filament Strapping Tape

Filament Strapping Tape

What Is Filament Strapping Tape? There are many different types of tape available on the market. One such tape is the filament strapping tape. This is also known as strapping tape or filament tape. It comes in a range of different sizes and is mainly used in packaging. Often, it is used to close a corrugated fiberboard box, or to make packages stronger. It is also used to bundle items together or to unitize pallets. It is basically made up from an adhesive that is pressure sensitive. This is coated onto a material. Generally, this material is either polyester, polypropylene or fiberglass. Sometimes, it is a combination of the three, which increases the tensile strength. The tensile strength is the key of the filament strapping tape. The history of the tape started in 1946, when it was invented by Cyrus W. Bemmels. He was a scientist, employed by Johnson and Johnson. The tape comes in a whole range of different grades, some being able to carry as much as 300 pounds in tensile strength for each inch of width, which is a serious amount of strength. The tape generally also comes with different grades of adhesive, which tell you how well and how long the tape will stick. Generally, the standard tapes are between 12 and 24 millimeters thick, which is about an inch. However, it is available in a range of different sizes, calipers, strengths and adhesive formulas. Most of the time, this type of tape is used to close a corrugate box. For instance, full overlap boxes, full telescope boxes or five panel folders are often closed with filament strapping tape. Here, an L shaped clip or a strip is applied to the flap that overlaps, thereby extending the box panels by two or three inches. It is also often used to protect boxes that have a particularly heavy load or boxes that have been badly or poorly constructed. Here, the tape is used to make the boxes stronger. This is generally done by adding bands or strip of the tape to the boxes.
