While every team consists of different people, personalities and characteristics, a good team is like a well-oiled machine: all the parts doing different jobs, working together to achieve a common goal. In the same way, the humble packaging tape is a well-designed machine consisting of four different parts to satisfy your packaging needs: the core, release, primer and adhesive.
The core is the foundational role of your team, the person on which everyone depends; it is the inner roll on which the tape is wound. Next is the release – this team member is in a supportive role to help colleagues to perform their tasks; the release is an adhesive layer on the support that is used to help the tape reel off. Following is the primer, which is like the additional role or job that now you cannot imagine working without; it is an additive layer applied between the support and the adhesive mass which keeps the two parts together. Finally is the adhesion – the pinnacle role of your team who is the glue to hold everything together!
Signet offers a range of these “well oiled machines” with different adhesives for varied applications. This includes rubber adhesive, water-based acrylic adhesive and the hot melt, which is a synthetic rubber adhesive. All of these adhesives types are designed for packaging, each with specific benefits to suit your needs.
