Cellophane Tape VS OPP Tape

Cellophane tape is not the same as OPP tape.

Cellophane tape

is made from a thin sheet of cellophane, which is a type of plastic. It is clear and has a slightly glossy finish. Cellophane tape is not very strong and is not water-resistant. It is often used for wrapping gifts, sealing envelopes, and making repairs.

OPP tape

on the other hand, is made from oriented polypropylene film. It is also clear and has a glossy finish, but it is much stronger and more water-resistant than cellophane tape. OPP tape is often used for packaging products, sealing boxes, and lamination.

Here is a table summarizing the key differences between cellophane tape and OPP tape:

Feature Cellophane tape OPP tape
Material Cellophane Oriented polypropylene film
Strength Weak Strong
Water resistance Poor Good
Applications Wrapping gifts, sealing envelopes, making repairs. Typically used for lighter applications. Packaging products, sealing boxes, lamination. Can handle heavier tasks and is more resistant to factors like moisture and abrasion.
