Is Hot Melt or Acrylic Tape Best For Your Application?

Both hot melt and acrylic tapes perform well for carton sealing applications in room temperature environments. Both offer premium and economy grades and can be used for hand or machine application. Acrylic tape tends to be louder coming off the roll but is the most commonly used tape, it is inexpensive and ideal for a wide range of temperature settings including refrigeration. However hot melt tape offers a stronger adhesion and works well on corrugated with high levels of recycled material, or sealing packages where the content is heavy.
