Filament tape is a pressure sensitive self-adhesive tape which is made out of solvent adhesive coated onto a backing material like biaxially oriented polypropylene and with fibreglass filaments embedded to add high tensile strength for heavy-duty packaging purpose. It’s also known as strapping tape, due to its high tensile strength which is another substitute product for polypropylene strapping.
Filament tape is used for various kinds of packing as household electric equipment such as washers, refrigerators, metal or wood materials’ furnishing packaging. Although it has a similar characteristic of normal packaging tape that is used for carton sealing, filament tape is predominantly used for heavier packaging purposes. It is one of the most expensive packaging tape available in the market place but will save packaging damage and damage costs in the long run.
