Standard Specification for Pressure-Sensitive Tape for Packaging, Filament-Reinforced

2020-10-20 /Active

This specification covers filament-reinforced, pressure-sensitive adhesive tape for packaging and includes the following types: Type I, Type II, Type III, and Type IV. The tapes covered by this specification are intended for use in closing and reinforcing fiberboard boxes and for bundling items for shipment. The materials used in the construction of the tapes shall be such that they ensure performance of the tape over the prescribed temperature range. The material and manufacture requirements for backing, adhesive, reinforcements, and rolls are specified. The tape shall comply with the physical property requirements such as (1) adhesion before and after aging, (1) adhesion at low temperature, (3) elongation, (4) shear adhesion, (5) break strength, and (6) thickness. Additional physical requirements are specified for Type IV tape. The tape shall meet the prescribed dimension (including the roll width, roll length, and splice overlap), color, and transparency requirements. The sampling method for end-item examination and end-item testing are given. Accelerated aging (heat and humidity), adhesion, break strength and elongation, thickness, and weathering (for Type IV only) tests shall be performed. Environmental considerations such as toxic content are also specified.

Significance and Use:

10.1 The pressure-sensitive, filament-reinforced tapes covered by this specification are intended for use in closing and reinforcing fiberboard boxes and for bundling items for shipment.

10.2 Type I is an impact and cut-resistant low-tensile strength tape, usually with polyester fiber reinforcement. It is intended for bundling and similar applications and used where a greater amount of stretch before break provides an improvement in impact resistance over glass filament reinforcement.

10.3 Types II and III are intended for reinforcement of RSC's and similar fiberboard boxes, and for bundling where a snug bundle must be maintained and other similar applications.

10.4 Type IV is intended for applications in which weather-resistance high-tensile strength tape is required.

10.5 See Practice D1974/D1974M for details on applications.


1.1 This specification covers filament-reinforced, pressure-sensitive adhesive tape.

1.2 The values stated in either inch-pound or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore each system must be used independently of the other, without combining values in any way.

1.3 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test methods portion, Section 14, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
