A weekly update of the goings-on at Easitape!

     

9/11/2023 - Metal detectable Spliing!


Metal detectable splicing tape is a type of tape that is commonly used in industries such as food processing, pharmaceuticals, and packaging where contamination from foreign objects, including tape fragments, poses a risk. It is designed to be easily detectable by metal detectors commonly found in production lines.

Metal detectable splicing tape contains a thin layer of aluminum which is integrated into its construction. This metal layer makes the tape visible to metal detection systems, allowing it to be easily detected if it becomes dislodged or contaminates the product.

The tape is black in color, as blue and black is a color that is easily distinguishable from most food products and packaging materials. This makes it easy to identify and remove any tape fragments that may have entered the product during the manufacturing process.

Metal detectable splicing tape is often used for securing and joining different materials in the production line, such as plastic films, cardboard, or paper. It helps ensure that if any tape ends up in the final product, it can be detected and removed before it reaches the consumer.

It is important to note that metal detectable splicing tape is not intended to replace proper food safety practices but rather to serve as an additional safeguard against foreign object contamination. Manufacturers should still follow strict quality control procedures and implement appropriate measures to prevent any potential contaminants from entering the production process.

12/10/2023 - New HangTab Brochure!







05/10/2023 - Fear no more in losing “Stacks”, stick with us and we’ll make tracks!


The tobacco fumigation market refers to the industry involved in the practice of using fumigants to control pests and diseases in tobacco fields and storage facilities. Fumigation plays a vital role in ensuring the quality and safety of tobacco products.


One commonly used method for tobacco fumigation involves the use of fumigation tapes. Fumigation tapes are specialized adhesive tapes that are impregnated with fumigant chemicals. These tapes are placed over the seams and openings of stored tobacco bales, containers, or warehouses to create an airtight seal.

The fumigation tape SS08 serve two main purposes:

1. Sealing: The primary purpose of fumigation tapes is to provide a tight seal to prevent the entry or escape of pests and fumigant gases. This helps to maintain the efficacy of the fumigation process and minimize the risk of re-infestation.

2. Slow-release: Fumigation tapes are designed to slowly release fumigant chemicals over a specific period, allowing for continuous pest control. The tape's adhesive characteristics also help in preventing fumigant loss.


When using fumigation tapes, it is essential to follow safety guidelines and regulations set by authorities, as fumigant chemicals can be hazardous if not handled properly. It is crucial to consult with experts or fumigation suppliers to ensure the correct usage and application methods specific to the product being used.

Additionally, it's important to note that fumigation tapes may vary in composition and active ingredients. These differences can influence their effectiveness and usage instructions. Therefore, it is advised to refer to the product's instructions and specifications provided by the manufacturer for accurate usage details.

15/09/2023 - How To Get The Most Out Of Etape


When looking for a new tape solution for an application your best option is to contact one of our specialists who are always willing and able to recommend a product that will suit your needs. We can however only do so much when it comes how the tape is applied and stored.

With this being said, here are some tips and things to remember when using our tape to ensure the best performance of the product.



All of our Adhesives are Pressure Sensitive

This means pressure must be added when applying the tape for it to properly bond with the surface it is being applied to. The more pressure, the better the tape will perform!

Ensure the surface is clean!

Adhesive will always try bond with the first thing it touches. If there is dust or dirt on the surface the adhesive will bond to that instead of to the surface as required. Before applying the tape, clean the surface thoroughly with water and a clean cloth.

Keep the tape dry.

Where you store the product can often make or break the product’s performance when you use it. Make sure the tape is stored in a dry area at room temperature. Water could ruin the finish or strength of the product especially if it is paper based or has a certain finish required for the application. When applying the tape, you must also ensure the surface is dry before applying to ensure the adhesive bonds correctly. Once applied, our adhesive will not be affected at all by water.

Importance of Temperature

We have many hotmelt adhesive tapes in our range. These adhesives can be majorly affected by the temperature of the room in which they are stored. If the room is bitterly cold the adhesive will harden and struggle to bond when used. If the room is overly hot, this adhesive could melt slightly causing uneven coating weights (amount of adhesive) on the roll, meaning some parts of the roll could bond superbly while other parts barely bond at all.



06/09/2023 - BENEFITS OF A FLOOR MARKING SYSTEM


Floor marking tape is an indispensable tool in maintaining safety and organisation in the workplace. Its role goes beyond mere aesthetics, as floor markings play a pivotal role in guiding employees, highlighting potential hazards, and establishing efficient traffic patterns.

One of the primary benefits of a well-designed floor marking system is its significant contribution to enhanced safety. Floor markings serve as visual cues that help identify and minimise hazards, such as tripping and slipping risks, by clearly marking the locations of equipment, materials, and designated work areas. This proactive approach to safety not only prevents accidents but also reduces the likelihood of injuries and even fatalities, making the workplace a safer environment for all employees.

In addition to promoting safety, floor markings also play a vital role in improving workplace organisation. By strategically defining the layout of the workplace, including storage areas, traffic lanes, and individual workstations, floor markings make it easier for employees to navigate the space, locate necessary materials, and access equipment. An efficiently organised workplace translates to increased productivity and efficiency, as employees spend less time searching for items and more time focusing on their tasks at hand.

Floor marking tape offers a versatile solution for various floor marking needs, thanks to its availability in a wide range of colours . Each colour can serve a distinct purpose and carry specific information, enhancing workplace communication. For instance, red floor marking tape is typically used to identify dangerous areas, serving as crucial indicators that draw immediate attention to potential hazards. On the other hand, yellow floor marking tape is often employed to define traffic lanes, walkways, and aisles, facilitating smooth navigation within the workplace.

Moreover, green floor marking tape is an excellent choice to highlight fire hazard areas, first aid stations, and other safety-related information. By doing so, it clearly indicates the locations where employees can access emergency response equipment or seek medical assistance in case of an unforeseen event. Similarly, blue floor marking tape is commonly used to mark storage areas, such as racks and shelves, streamlining the organisation of materials and equipment and making it easier for employees to locate specific items.

Additionally, white floor marking tape is employed to mark areas where quality control checks occur, signifying spots where materials or products require thorough inspection. White floor markings help ensure that the quality assurance process is well-defined and can be easily identified by employees.

Installing floor marking tape is a relatively simple process that can be done quickly and efficiently. Before application, it is crucial to ensure that the floor is clean and free of debris, oil, and grease. Products like our IPA Surface Cleaner can be utilised for this purpose. The next step involves careful planning of the floor marking tape layout, considering the different areas and colours required for specific markings.

       

24/08/2023 - Insulate your winter




Insulation Tape is a weird and wonderful product. It has so many uses for it and the list keeps growing every year, from insulating electrical wires and cables to holding your broken rugby boots together.

Picture of Insulation tape being used


Insulation tape was invented by John J Ryan in 1920 and it was created to insulate electrical wires. It was made from cloth and a rubber which was very impressive for their times. The tape was upgraded to a base material of Polyvinyl Chloride commonly known as PVC in 1930. The PVC material made the insulation tape water resistant, flame retardant and durable and open a world of applications for the tape.

Picture of insulation tape


In 1940’s insulation tape was very popular during the second World War. Insulation tape was used to fix radios, weapons, and other equipment. People used to use insulation tape as part of a bandage. The insulation tape was combined with a piece of cloth to bandage minor injuries. The list of application just growing from using insulation that colours for fashion and camouflage to using it to create artwork and sculptures. Today insulation tapes have come a long way. I have been using insulation tape as my own repair kit for my glasses and rugby boots.

Running out of Marketing ideas?

Let us help you get your Brand out there!

Having your company details on your packaging materials has so many benefits, so let us help you get to the positive side of the statistic.

While packaging is important there are 2 key features to keep in mind; the first being the quality of the packaging and the second being the memorability.

Printer Packaging tape and Box by Easitape


According to Global Brands Magazine there are 5 top reasons to have your packaging branded with your logo and details, they are as follows:

1. Increasing the visibility of your business:
Exposure! Exposure! Exposure!
The more people who see your logo on boxes, in stores and online, the more you will be approached with enquiries.
Yes the initial expenditure of branded packaging might be a little frightful, but within a few months your investment will be returned two-fold.
Having your product stand out above the competitors will make all the difference. Bright colours and bold letters will ensure your product is chosen more often than the dull and subtly packaged items.

2. Making your brand more recognisable:
Make sure you have a unique logo and a colour scheme that speaks not only your company, but to your consumers as well.
Once you are satisfied with your memorable logo, start putting that logo on everything!
You want consumers to see you logo and go: “Hey! I know these people!”, and with that you have secured the sale!

3. Custom packaging serves as a marketing strategy:
Get people talking about your brand!
Word of mouth, being one of the most powerful forms of advertising seeing as 88% of consumers trust the recommendations from friend and family. (As stated by Investopedia.com)
Different types of WOM marketing: Buzz, Blogs and social media marketing.

4. Quality packaging, ensures a well preserved product.
The better the quality of your packaging, the safer your product will be during transportation, storage and displaying to the end user.
Functional packaging has just as much of an effect on the success of the sale, e.g. loosely sold products would be more eye-catching hanging from the rack, that laying hidden on the shelf.

5. Simplifies sales, and in turn saves you money:
A noticeable product causes more people to choose your product. Seeing as the branded packaging increases sales, more people will buy the product they recognise.
Which ultimately would save you money on advertising as your product is already advertising itself!

Having the best product, while beneficial, is not enough. Having an eye-catching and memorable product serves a multitude of purposes.

So what can Easitape do to bump up your packaging to the next level?

Printed packaging tape, sealing your boxes with your logo goes a very long way!

Custom printed hangtabs, allows your products to hang in stores with no hassle. Easy to apply and made according to your specifications, make your hangtab stand out above the rest.

13/07/2023 - High Temperature Polyester Masking Tape for Electro Plating


Electroplating is a process of depositing a thin layer of metal onto a surface. This process is used to protect surfaces from corrosion, to improve the appearance of surfaces, and to add decorative features.

One of the most important steps in electroplating is masking off the areas that you do not want to be plated. This is done to prevent the metal from being deposited in unwanted areas.

High temperature polyester masking tape is a great option for masking off areas before electroplating. This tape is made from a polyester film that is heat resistant up to 400°F (204°C). The adhesive on the tape is also heat resistant, so it will not melt or delaminate during the electroplating process.

Picture of Polyester Masking Tape by Easitape Picture of Polyester Masking Tape by Easitape

In addition to being heat resistant, high temperature polyester masking tape is also water resistant and solvent resistant. This makes it ideal for use in a variety of electroplating applications.

To use high temperature polyester masking tape for electroplating, simply clean the surface that you want to mask off. Then, apply the tape to the surface, making sure to smooth out any air bubbles. Once the tape is in place, you can etch or sand the surface as needed.

After the electroplating process is complete, the tape can be easily removed. The adhesive will not leave any residue behind, so you can be sure that your surface will be clean and smooth.

Here are some of the benefits of using high temperature polyester masking tape for electroplating:
• Heat resistant up to 400°F (204°C)
• Water resistant and solvent resistant
• Easy to apply and remove
• Leaves no residue behind

If you are looking for a high quality masking tape that is perfect for electroplating, then high temperature polyester masking tape is the perfect choice for you.

01/06/2023 - Filament Tape




Filament tape otherwise known as the upgraded version of packaging tape.

Filament tape is a very strong single sided tape made from a fibre-reinforced substrate that does not tear. Filament tape can be used for a variety of purposes, including bundling, reinforcing, and sealing

Picture of Filament tape Picture of Filament tape



An example of people that would use filament in the bunding industrials such as the shipping and logistics companies that bundle a very heavy objects together because of how strong the filament tape.

The tape is very durably and water resistant so you can keep products together for imports and exports without having to worry about them.

The amount of heavy and expensive machines and merchandises that is being brought in and out from overseas is crazy.

They will need a tape that will not break or tear easily mid transit due to the rough transportation system.

That would cost companies millions or maybe billions if they kept receiving goods that were broken or lost day in day out.

Filament tape is the perfect, cost-effective, strong, durably product to use to secure your goods. A 48mm x 40m roll can carry up to 130kgs.

Here are some additional benefits of using filament tape:

• It is easy to apply and remove.
• A tackier adhesive on filament than on packaging tape
• It is available in a mono and cross weave.

19/04/2023 - Get in the Loop and Get Hooked on Easitape




Our polyester adhesive and sew-on hook and loop tapes are two different types of products that can be used to secure items together.

Both have a wide range of uses and offer a durable and reliable bonding process.

Hook-and-loop tape is a self-adhesive or non-adhesive tape that consists of two components.

The first component is a hook side which has small plastic hooks on one side.

The second component is a loop side which has small fluffy loops on the other side.

When both sides are pressed together, they form an incredibly strong bond that holds two surfaces in place.

Sew-on hook-and-loop tape is usually sewn onto fabric or other materials.

Commonly used on clothing and tents it is used as an alternative to zips, laces, buttons and other temporary fasteners.

The polyester material means our product lasts longer in outdoor environments.

Hook and Loop in use on material


Our adhesive version is just as commonly used on solid surfaces that you unable to sew into.

The strong modified rubber adhesive allows for a strong permanent bond to surfaces.

A good example of this is on the bottom of bench cushions used in restaurants.

This allows the cushions to be easily removed from bench to be cleaned but ensures that while patrons are sitting on the benches, the cushions do not move around or fall off the base of the bench.

02/03/2023 - Let's help fill the void in your Quality Assurance!


Let me introduce you to the best, newest and most efficient product that is now the top of the range used to secure packages!

Void Tape, aka tamper-evident tape, is a product that has sticky residue under the surface of the tape which when peeled off or tampered with, provides the consumer with visible evidence that tampering may have occurred.

This helps the end-user recognise if the packaging has been opened, damaged, or tampered with.

Picture of void Tape manufactured by EasiTape


Having been used in the pharmaceutical industry for years, it has been proven to be a safe and secure option for keeping longfingers out of your parcel!

Now you’re asking” What benefits could this product have to offer my company?”
  • Security Purposes: it keeps the looting to a minimum! Not only does it remove the need to take extra precausionary measures and security checks but it also provides a strong visual deterant. As soon as the tape is removed from the original packaging, the word “void” appears repeatedly, and cannot be stuck back into place and appear to be untouched.
  • Picture of void Tape manufactured by EasiTape Picture of void Tape manufactured by EasiTape Picture of void Tape manufactured by EasiTape
  • This prevents tarnishing the company name. With counterfeiting becoming a growing global issue, more and more poor quality products are being passed off as the real thing. This could lead to bad reviews and potential customers being deterred from the brand all together. With the product being sealed with a reliable tamper-proof tape, you can rest-assured that your customers will feel safe knowing all that what they have ordered will be from the original supplier and secure in the box.
  • Picture of void Tape manufactured by EasiTape
  • You’ll receive less complaints and returns which means enhanced growth in customer satisfaction. As we know the customer is always right, and a happy customer ensures a satisfied supplier. This tape would ensure that your products are supplied to the end-user as they have been sent out. With the knowledge that your clients will always receive the stock they are expecting and at the quality promised, you can guarantee the returns and complaints will automatically decrease.

23/02/2023 - Let Your Printed Tape Do The Talking.


Printed packaging tape is one of the most specialised products that we manufacture. We have the ability to run up to four colours on our gravure machine along with a wide variety of colours and sizes.

Our printed tape is not like any other tape as we run the print under the surface of the tape which prevents smudging, cracking and the transfer of the ink.

By running the tape this way, its life span is increased and the actual product will end up being more susceptible to different conditions. You can also test this by spraying sanitiser or any form of alcohol on the surface of the tape and rubbing on the artwork.

There are a few benefits of using printed tape rather than plain packaging tape.

The first and most common benefit is brand awareness, this is an easy and affordable way of promoting your brand.

Secondly, its more eye catching than just regular box tape.

Thirdly, we use acrylic adhesive on our tape rather than a hotmelt adhesive which guarantees a firmer bond between the tape and the surface that its applied to.

16/02/2023 - Fear no more in losing "Stacks", Stick with us & we'll make tracks!


One thing that separates Easitape from the packaging industry is our out of the box thinking & keen eye in staying ahead of the game.
Fumigation Tape – SS08
When fumigating any dry goods mainly Tobacco, Seeds ,Grains ,Nuts ,Spices etc. you need to adhere to obvious laws and a maintained fumigation process that follows the correct procedures & protocols.
The obvious reasoning for this is safety as the fumigant present could be harmful to those who come into contact with this BUT just as serious is a failed fumigation .
A failed fumigation could and has cost hundreds of thousands of Rands & sometimes even into the millions depending of the severity of failure and what amount of product has been lost .
A good example of this is at least 1% of all warehoused tobacco in just the USA alone is being lost which equates to over 5 billion Rand due to the tobacco beetle(Lasioderma Serricorne).
But do not let the name fool you. The tobacco beetle causes damage to a variety of stored products.
These include cereal, dates, dried fish, ginger, grain, pepper, pharmaceuticals, raisins and seeds contaminating them with excrement and dead bodies which can destroy entire stores of food.

In order to prevent this nightmarish occurrence you would make use of what is known as stack fumigation as per below example:

Image of fumigation

You would “stack” your goods in specific columns and cover this with a tarp or a virgin grade LDPE plastic which can range from a 120Mic to a 270 Mic .
To ensure the safe & tight seal you shall need to tape down that material with Easitapes SS08 Fumigation Tape to secure and lock all the vapours into the designated stack .
The SS08 has an easy to use cloth tape material finish that is easy to tear & is laminated with a premium hot melt rubber .
We offer this in two standard colours of Red & Pink as these are the two options known within the fumigation industry.

Welcome to our Easitape Blog. These writeups will hopefully help our customers understand our products and what they are used for in a different manner.
Through the years we have found that one product has so many descriptions or names, not to mention what people use it for. 
Our weekly Blogs will hopefully enlighten you and put a smile on your face as to what we at Easitape can do for you and your tape requirements.
Our Dynamic sales team are only a call away to assist you with all your tape needs
