It is made to be easily removed without causing any residue or surface damage. Additionally, the tape can be used for labeling and crafting projects.

Kraft Paper Tape

Kraft paper tape is made of kraft paper and pressure-sensitive adhesives, and is eco-friendly and biodegradable, making it a sustainable alternative to other packaging tapes. This tape is strong and durable, commonly used for sealing boxes and packaging.
