This specification covers reinforced (Type I) and plain (Type II) paper gummed adhesive tapes used for securing and banding paper products and sealing fiberboard boxes. Type I gummed tape may be strippable (Class 1) or nonstrippable (Class 2), while Type II paper-backed gummed tape, whether Grade A (light duty), B (medium duty), or C (heavy duty), is nonstrippable. The tapes shall be manufactured from kraft paper, but the use of recycled pulp in the paper is encouraged as well, and the adhesive used must not have an offensive odor and shall conform to the environmental considerations specified. Type I tapes shall consist of two strips of paper in roll form, while Type II tapes shall consist of one strip of paper in roll form. Upon manufacture, the tape shall be clean and free of folds, sharp creases, tears, cuts, and holes. The tapes shall be examined for visual defects, defects in roll construction, and defects in dimensions. Tests for adhesiveness, tensile strength, and elongation shall be performed as well, and shall conform to the physical properties specified.
