A: Hello - Thank you for asking. This shipping packaging tape works best with its dispenser. Find the dispenser here: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Scotch-1-88-in-x-54-6-yds-Heavy-Duty-Shipping-Packaging-Tape-with-Dispenser-3850-RD-DC/100149185. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please connect with our team directly at 1-800-3M-HELPS Mo-Fri 8am-4:30pm CT.
A: yes you can but it hard w/o knife
A: Obviously the width is the same, but I don't know how big your original holder is. These are 3 inch diameter cores.
A: I use it without dispenser because I prefer that way .
A: Great Question! The Scotch 1.88 in x 54.6 yard Heavy Duty Packaging Tape comes on a 3" diameter tape core and will not fit the dispenser that fits the tape 1.88 in x 22.2 yards on the 1-1/2 in diameter core. If you need more help, contact our team at 1-800-328-6276 Mon-Fri 8:00-4:30 CT and reference Case 24485623.
A: Didn’t use a dispenser
A: I'd say that it depends on the dispenser. If the 22.2 yard tape spool seemed tight, I'd advise against it, but most seem to work just fine. Just be aware that this stuff is EXTRA thick and takes a bit of effort to cut with standard dispensers.
A: Hello. Due to the technical nature of your question, please contact our team directly at 1-800-328-6276 M-F 8am-4:30pm CT so we can gather more information to better assist you. Thank you.
A: I think the tape itself is probably waterproof since it seems to be of some kind of plastic. But I would be concerned about water seeping under the tape it self and penetrating the "package". I also don't know how long the mastic would hold up to water if underwater. Sorry!
A: The tape repels water and can easily be wiped if needed. Very good product. Best packing tape I've ever purchased.
A: To what extent? Drops of water would roll off for sure, but if the box is soaked the tape will likely come undone after awhile.
A: i wouldn't recommend this tape for anything

A: The tape I purchased served it's purpose, sealing multiple shipments.
A: If you're looking for stronger tape, you could try the type with fibers in it. There's always the gray duct tape type as well. However, I've had good luck with the scotch packing tape. For heavier boxes, I have had multiple passes with very good results. I hope this helps!
A: You might be interested in our Scotch Extreme Tape, a strapping tape with bi-directional reinforced fibers. You can also contact our product support team at 1-800-328-6276 Mon-Fri 8am-4:30pm CT and our team will be happy to gather further details about your application and recommend a product to fit your needs. Thanks for asking!
A: Greetings, Cyn... From my personal experience, the Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping Packaging Tape holds up very well for me. I use this tape to seal small and large boxes for extended storage of personal and household items, as well as for shipping boxes via USPS and UPS. This tape may appear to be "thin" but I have not experienced any failure problems in my use of it. The adhesive appears to "stick" very well on the cardboard boxes that I have used and none of the sealed boxes have broken open or otherwise failed for me. Have you actually tried using this tape and experienced failure of the tape? If you are trying to seal boxes that contain VERY heavy items, you could consider the Scotch Extreme Shipping Strapping Tape that is also available from Home Depot. Typically, a "strapping tape" contains fibers that add to its tensile strength. Unfortunately, this tape is more expensive than the Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping Packaging Tape. It all depends on the specific use that you have for the tape whether you need to use the Heavy Duty Shipping Packaging Tape or the Extreme Shipping Strapping Tape. I would recommend that you give the Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping Packaging Tape a try in your own specific use and see if works as well for you as it has for me. Good Luck!
