What is the Best Tape to Use For Cold Temperatures?
If you’re packing shipments for seafood, produce, ice cream, meat production plants, but also live in a really cold area where the temperature drops really low in your warehouse, you should use cold temperature tape.

Hi everyone, Ricky Chu from Chu’s Packaging Supplies here. I wanted to touch back on cold temperature tape. So when do you need cold temperature tape? Definitely for seafood, produce, ice cream, meat production plants, but also you live in a really cold area where the temperature drops really low in your warehouse.
That’s where normal hot melt won’t work. So we put together this demonstration to show you the difference between the adhesives. Right here, I have three rolls of different tape that I have kept in the freezer overnight. So this is our cold temperature, standard hot melt and an acrylic. We’ll start with the standard hot melt. Standard hot melt on corrugated. Tape
it here. Doesn’t stick at all because it’s been in the freezer too long and the hot melt adhesive has hardened up. Next we’ll try a regular acrylic.
Regular acrylic sticks pretty well.
And here we have our cold temperature hot melt.
Also has a really good bite on the corrugated. Another quick demo here is we taped this overnight – this box using our standard hot melt tape, and it’s not even holding, it’s popping open. This is the last thing you want when you’re shipping, especially when it comes to food. You don’t want any contamination, you don’t want any tampering with it, but if you’re using a standard hot melt in the freezer, it’s not gonna stick.
That’s just the way it goes. We print on all three adhesives for the tape. So whatever you need, we’re gonna have it. If you have more questions or you need more information about custom printed tape or different adhesives, please visit our website at www.chuspkg.com.
