It’s been a few years since we announced our new product line, Rigid Box stay tape. After hearing from our customers and what their stay tape needs are, we are happy to introduce our heat-seal white stay tape.

Why Box Manufacturers Use White stay tape?

Typically, most box makers prefer to use white stay tape when using a whiteboard. When the outside of the board is white, using a white stay will prevent the stay tape from showing through the cover material. When the inside of the box is also white, the white tape is preferred to help hide any imperfection in the corner of the box. We are starting to see a lot more whiteboard out there when it comes to high-end packagings like electronics and cosmetics boxes. 


Troubleshooting the quad is another good use for white stay tape. That’s right, it has nothing to do with the look of the box. Think about it, you are having issues with one corner not adhering, but it’s difficult to troubleshoot which side because all four sides look alike. It might take some time to figure it out, but with one side corner being white you can easily see what direction the box came out of the machine.

Benefits of our white stay tape

Our white stay tape is 100% virgin paper stock. What does that mean? Since it’s not recycled, there are no questions about what the paper is made from. Virgin paper stock also has longer fibers thus it’s much stronger than recycled paper where the fibers tend to be much shorter. Not to mention a stronger adhesion bond as well!

storage of stay tape

This is a controlled moisture product and should be stored in a conditioned environment. Storage temperatures are recommended to range between 50° F (10°C) and maximum 68° F (20°C) with a 40-60% relative humidity to avoid any tape defects.

Pallets should be opened only when ready to use. We recommend that you do not leave any of the product unpacked and open to the air.

Keep the rolls away from heat and do not press the side rolls to avoid any paper blocking or damage.
