Research on Preparation and Characterization of Easy-to-Open Tear Tape for Corrugated Carton
This paper presented a novel tape, which was used to open the corrugated cartons more easily and quickly. Structure of the tear tape consisted of backing materials (acrylic fibers), adhesive (acrylic pressure-sensitive adhesive) and release paper. Prepared tear tapes with different thickness, analyzed the influence of tear tape thickness on performance of open system and added them to the corrugated board, then tested the opening properties of the corrugated board above. The results indicate that the tape, with 0.18mm in thickness and about 25mm in width, can split high quantitative corrugated board smoothly, the tensile strength for opening is 105N at maximum, which means these tape can satisfy the needs of easy-to-open technique.
