Multi-Purpose Lab Tape – Offers Versatility for Your Work Environment

Lab tape is a special kind of one-sided tape that is used in laboratories and similar types of environments for labeling purposes. Available in a variety of colors, the tape can be applied as a part of a color coding system or as a makeshift labeling solution that contains important, printed information about the safety, expiration date, storage requirements, and other important data about the object to which the tape is affixed.

Implementing a lab tape solution is similar to creating other types of labeling solutions for laboratory use. Several considerations must be made to ensure that the solution is broad enough for the intended application, is efficient to use, and works well in terms of tape performance. At Shamrock Labels, we can assist you with implementing a new lab tape solution that’s perfect for your requirements by addressing the following factors.

Tape Dimensions
We offer tape rolls whose dimensions range from ½” X 500” to 2” X 2160”. Tape dimensions are important for two reasons: The length determines how much tape you receive in a single roll, and the width determines the size of printed messages you can place on the tape. We’ll help you choose dimensions that deliver the greatest cost savings in terms of tape length and are perfect for recording information you may need to present.

Tape Adhesive
Labeling tape adhesive is widely categorized as removable adhesive that makes the tape easy to peel away and permanent adhesive that has the opposite effect. However, in laboratories especially, additional considerations must often be made when selecting an adhesive, particularly the temperature at which the tape will be used, and whether it will be used in the presence of catalysts that could impact the tape’s adhesion.

Color Coding
Color coding is one of the most common uses for lab tape. We can help you meet your tape-based color coding requirements in two ways: by supplying individual rolls of tape in multiple colors and by supplying a bulk order of color coded, multi-purpose labeling tape in several colors. The second option is a great way to save on tape costs, but the primary goal is to supply as many colors as are needed for the color coding system.

Tape Dispensing
After you choose tape that has the right dimensions, adhesive, and color coding options, it’s time to select an efficient system for dispensing it. We make the dispensing process easy by providing tape dispensers that can hold multiple rolls of tape simultaneously. We also sell dispensers that are designed to hold only one roll. Our dispensers are durable and affordable thanks to their rigid materials and simple construction.
