Common Questions Asked by Customers About Scotch & Its Products
What is the difference between Scotch Magic Tape and Scotch Transparent Tape?
Scotch Magic Tape is a matte-finished, invisible tape, while Scotch Transparent Tape is a glossy, transparent tape. Magic Tape is designed to be written on, and is ideal for gift-wrapping and labeling, while Transparent Tape is better for packaging and other applications where a clear, strong bond is required.
Can Scotch tapes be recycled?
Scotch tapes are not typically recyclable, as the adhesive can contaminate other materials in the recycling process. However, some Scotch products, such as the Scotch Magic Greener Tape, are made with recycled or plant-based materials and can be recycled.
Are Scotch tapes safe for photos?
Yes, most Scotch tapes are safe for use with photos, but it's always best to test a small area first. The Scotch Magic Tape is a good option for photos, as it is acid-free and won't yellow over time.
Can Scotch tapes be used outdoors?
Some Scotch tapes, such as the Heavy Duty Shipping Packaging Tape, are designed for use outdoors and are resistant to water, UV rays, and extreme temperatures. However, not all Scotch tapes are suitable for outdoor use, so it's best to check the product specifications before using it outside.
What is the shelf life of Scotch tapes?
Most Scotch tapes have a shelf life of about two years. Beyond that, the tape may lose its adhesive properties and become less effective. It's best to store tape in a cool, dry place to extend its shelf life.
