OPP Gum Tape

OPP gum tape, also known as BOPP gum tape or OPP water-activated tape, is a specific type of gum tape that is made from Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) film. It offers the same water-activated adhesive properties as regular gum tape but with the added benefits of BOPP film. Here is some information about OPP gum tape: 

  1. BOPP Film Base: OPP gum tape is manufactured using Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) film as its base material. BOPP film is known for its strength, durability, and excellent clarity.

  2. Water-Activated Adhesive: Similar to regular gum tape, OPP gum tape requires water to activate its adhesive properties. When water is applied to the adhesive side of the tape, it becomes sticky and forms a strong bond when pressed onto surfaces.

  3. Secure Bonding: OPP gum tape provides a secure and permanent bond when applied to various surfaces, including cardboard, paperboard, and corrugated boxes. This ensures that packages remain securely sealed during transit, reducing the risk of tampering or damage.

  4. Tamper-Evident Feature: Like other gum tapes, OPP gum tape offers a tamper-evident seal. It shows clear signs of any tampering attempts, providing an added layer of security and indicating the package’s integrity.

  5. BOPP Film Benefits: The BOPP film used in OPP gum tape offers several advantages. It provides excellent tensile strength, moisture resistance, and dimensional stability, ensuring the tape maintains its integrity and performance even under challenging conditions.

  6. Customizable and Printable: OPP gum tape can be easily customized and printed to meet specific branding or labeling requirements. Logos, text, or designs can be printed on the tape, enhancing brand visibility and providing a professional appearance.

  7. Environmentally Friendly: OPP gum tape is considered an environmentally friendly packaging option. The BOPP film used is recyclable, and the water-activated adhesive reduces reliance on synthetic adhesives, making it a more sustainable choice.

  8. Application Methods: OPP gum tape can be applied using manual methods or with the help of gum tape dispensers. Wetting the adhesive side with water activates the adhesive, allowing it to bond securely to surfaces.

OPP gum tape is commonly used in various industries, including e-commerce, fulfillment centers, logistics, and general packaging applications. Its reliable bonding, tamper-evident properties, and the benefits of BOPP film make it an ideal choice for businesses looking for secure and eco-friendly packaging solutions.
