Tapes

Standard, 50 yard / 45.7 m tapes are wound on 50 mm / 2 inch cores. Longer tapes that are wound on a different winder may also be wound on 75 mm / 3” cores. Standard tapes are individually wrapped in plastic. The wrapped tapes are placed in a cardboard sleeve, which in turn is placed in a larger (master) carton. Master cartons are placed on a pallet. The following table provides packaging info for standard 50 yard / 45.7m tapes:
