Flatback Tape – Packaging Tape

Sigma Supply of North America’s Flatback Tape (Paper Tape or Kraft Paper Tape) is designed for superior performance in a variety of packaging, splicing, and tabbing applications. It provides a quick positive seal under a wide range of temperature and humidity conditions.

Flatback products are versatile and specially-designed for porous and rough surfaces, making them the ideal choice for paper mills and converting facilities. They work reliably in splicing applications with higher line speeds, and generally use a heavier more flexible paper, allowing them to stick and form on the fly.
