Is there a shelf-life for tape?
Every tape has a shelf life. That period will determine how long the tape’s effectiveness is and if the bond will hold when applied to a carton or product. Storage is an important element to consider when buying tape. Hot, cold, dry, or wet climates can dramatically impact a tape’s performance if not stored properly. Also, it is crucial to know how long ago the tape was manufactured. If you purchase a tape manufactured over a year ago, and then proceed to store it for another year before use, then it could be far less effective than a more recently made tape.
Can tape be used for tamper-resistance?
Yes! We sell Security Tape that reveals if the package has been opened or attempted to be opened.
