Shurtape® brand AP 201® Colors is engineered to withstand a range of conditions and temperatures. It’s the ideal packaging tape solution for industries that need to clearly delineate sealed cases of different types of manufactured goods, including seasonal products, pharmaceuticals, general consumer goods, food products, and more.
“An important feature of AP 201 Colors is that it meets FDA guidelines for indirect food contact, as it pertains to packaging materials,” said Bradley Dunlap, senior product manager, industrial packaging, Shurtape Technologies, LLC. “Because the tape is engineered for high visibility and is available in vibrant hues, we recommend AP 201 Colors in blue for food shipments. It’s easily identifiable against the products and provides a visual guard against plastic contamination in the event tape fractures while opening the carton.”
For manufacturing businesses producing various products packaged in similar cartons, AP 201 Colors offers a simple solution for quickly recognizing specific product categories. The bright tapes stand out against the packages throughout the supply chain. This saves valuable time by allowing workers to efficiently group specific product categories or reroute certain cartons in an automated shipping system.
Constructed with a 28 micron biaxially oriented polypropylene cast film, the durable, 2.0 mil acrylic packaging tape is available in standard widths and lengths and can be used for light- to medium-weight cartons in manual or automated industrial case sealing systems.
