Each of our packaging tapes has been designed with a specific purpose in mind. For instance, Scotch® Heavy Duty Shipping Packaging Tape is extremely strong, keeping packages intact as they travel, while Scotch® Long Lasting Moving and Storage Packaging Tape features a unique adhesive that’s UV resistant and great for long term storage in hot or cold temperatures.
1: Remove the old tape core. Place the new roll of tape on the large roller and press all the way down. Make sure that the when you unroll the tape the sticky side is facing down. 2: Pull the tape over the guide bar – near the handle – and under the second, smaller roller. Some packaging tape dispensers have a spring loaded bar here. If so, hold it back so that you can easily pass the tape through. 3: Pull the tape against the serrated edge. 4: Tape away!
The colour of the tape has no meaning. The most common colours for packaging tapes are clear, off white, and tan. Many are transparent after they are applied so writing can be visible, such as mailing labels
It depends on what glue you’re using, and what your project is. For all glues (except super glue), apply a thin, uniform layer that completely covers the surface area to be glued. Apply Super glue sparingly. A good rule of thumb for super glue is to apply one small drop for each square inch of surface to be glued.
