Your Complete Guide to Kraft Paper Tape Production in 5 Easy Steps.

Kraft paper tape is a type of adhesive tape made from unbleached kraft paper and a water-activated adhesive.

The tape is known for its strength, durability, and eco-friendliness, making it a popular choice for packaging and shipping applications.

The kraft paper used in the tape is typically between 70-100 GSM in thickness, which provides the tape with a strong and sturdy base.

kraft gummed tape

The paper is unbleached, which means that it retains its natural brown color and has a rough, slightly porous surface that allows the adhesive to bond more effectively.

The adhesive used in kraft paper tape is typically a starch-based glue that is activated by water.

The adhesive is applied to one side of the kraft paper using a coating machine and then dried to remove the moisture from the adhesive and create a tacky and dry adhesive layer.

The dried adhesive layer provides a strong and reliable bond between the tape and the surface it is applied to.

Kraft paper tape is often used as a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to plastic-based tapes.

The unbleached kraft paper used in the tape is biodegradable and can be easily recycled, making it an environmentally conscious choice.

Additionally, the water-activated adhesive used in the tape is non-toxic and does not release harmful chemicals into the environment.

Kraft paper tape is available in a variety of widths and lengths to suit different packaging and shipping needs.

Today Jota machinery will give you fully introduction about how to manufacture kraft paper step by step:

The manufacturing process for kraft paper tape generally involves the following 5  steps:

  1. Kraft paper production: kraft paper is produced by pulping wood chips and then cooking the resulting pulp at high temperatures with chemicals to break down the wood fibers. The resulting pulp is then washed, refined, and formed into sheets of Kraft paper.
  2. Coating: The Kraft paper is then coated with an adhesive, which is typically a natural rubber or synthetic adhesive. The adhesive is applied to one side of the paper using a coating machine.
  3. Drying: The coated Kraft paper is then passed through a drying oven to cure the adhesive and remove any excess moisture.
  4. Slitting: After drying, use our kraft paper tape slitting machine cut into the desired width and length using a slitting machine.
  5. Packaging: The rolls of Kraft paper tape are then packaged for distribution to customers.

Next let us have a further introduction about each working step.

Kraft Paper Production:

The thickness of kraft paper you should choose for making kraft paper tape will depend on the intended use and strength required for the tape.

Kraft paper tape is typically made from unbleached kraft paper with a water-activated adhesive.

The most used kraft paper thickness for making tape is between 70-80 GSM (grams per square meter), which is roughly 0.1-0.15 mm thick. This thickness provides a good balance between strength and flexibility.

However, if you need a stronger tape, you may want to consider a thicker kraft paper.

For example, a 90-100 GSM kraft paper (roughly 0.15-0.2 mm thick) may provide more strength and durability, but it may also be less flexible and more difficult to tear by hand.

Ultimately, the choice of kraft paper thickness will depend on the specific requirements of your application.


The kraft paper then enters the coating section of the unit, where a water-based adhesive is applied to one side of the paper using a coating station.

The adhesive is typically a starch-based glue, which is activated by water and becomes sticky when wet.


The drying function in kraft paper tape manufacturing typically involves passing the coated kraft paper through a drying section of the coating machine.

This section of the machine uses heat and airflow to evaporate the moisture from the adhesive and create a tacky and dry adhesive layer on the paper.

The drying time can vary depending on the type of adhesive used, the thickness of the coating, and the machine settings.

Once the adhesive is dried, the kraft paper tape can be wound onto a roll for distribution and use.

The dried adhesive layer provides a strong and durable bond between the tape and the surface it is applied to, making it an effective solution for packaging and shipping applications.

The specific manufacturing process for kraft paper tape can vary depending on the equipment and materials used, as well as the desired properties of the final product.


A kraft paper tape slitting machine is a specialized piece of equipment used to slit large rolls of kraft paper tape into smaller rolls of specific widths.

These machines are essential in the production of kraft paper tape, as they allow manufacturers to customize the width of the tape to suit different packaging and shipping needs.

One key feature of our kraft paper tape slitting machine is the special design hydraulic shaftless unwinder stand.

This feature allows for easy loading and unloading of the rolls, as well as quick and easy adjustments to the tension of the kraft paper tape during the slitting process.

The hydraulic shaftless unwinder stand also minimizes waste and downtime, as it allows for the maximum utilization of the kraft paper tape roll.

In addition to the hydraulic shaftless unwinder stand, our kraft paper tape slitting machine is also customizable in terms of size.

While the standard sizes for the unwinder stand are 3-inch, 5-inch, and 6-inch, we can also customize the machine to suit the specific needs of the manufacturer.

Another key feature of our kraft paper tape slitting machine is the flexography printing unit.

This unit allows for high-quality, multi-color printing on the kraft paper tape while it is being slit.

This gives manufacturers the flexibility to print logos, product information, and other important details directly onto the tape, which can help to increase brand recognition and improve the overall appearance of the packaging.


When you finished the slitting step then your manual place the small kraft paper tape to the wooden box. After you seal the box then you can sell to the buyer.


This article gives you a fully guideline for manufacturing kraft paper tape from raw kraft paper production to packing.

If you want to know more about kraft paper tape knowledge the feel free to contact Jota Machinery, we will introduction you more.

What Is Water Activated Tape Machine?
