What arrived was NOT Scotch tape, but a brand called Manuli, which is thin, tears along its length & doesn't stick very well. Being busy packing, I really couldn't be bothered to go through the rigmarole of returning or complaining for the sake of £2.50+p&p, but I won't be using this company again!
This is a household product that has never been bettered. It's always fairly easy to find the end, even if it's stuck down flush - and to use. The ripping noise it generates is one of those familiar sounds and goes to show that it takes quite a force to un-stick it from itself!
It sticks with a tenacity of a bulldog clamped onto a postman's leg - and you need less than you think, but you do need scissors to cut it, at least cleanly. Like their Spray Mount adhesive, 3M's may be more expensive than its inferior rivals but it lasts - years, in most cases. It never seems to go 'off', nor will you find yourself throwing it away prematurely.
Bought heavy duty boxes to store ornaments and books etc during whole house decoration. Used parcel tape to fasten the boxes up securely so could be transported and put in storage. Excellent strong sticky tape, ideal for what we needed.
Here you are buying a pack of 2, 3M Scotch BUFF Brown Packaging Parcel Tape 50mm x 66m.
It's important to remember that this is the real deal, real Scotch, no silly cheap rubbish that you can pick up from the pound shops in town.
I still can't get over how strong it is, and it is strong. I'm in the middle of sorting out my DVD collection and have needed to box some DVDs up for the time being, this tape has been perfect for the boxes & so far none have collapsed.
So while yep, you are paying a tiny little bit more than the pound shops, it's worth it!
