Wood for kraft paper pulp TheTapeworks.comShurtape 724 console tape is made from a paper that is formed thru a chemical pulping process. This is where pulped wood (cellulose) is mixed with an acid to create a pulp that can make a stronger paper than other forms of wood pulp.

While the most common type of kraft paper is the one used for making brown paper grocery bags, it can be bleached in order to make it white.

The chemical pulping makes for a stronger and more flexible product which is also more resistant to yellowing.

Unlike “raw” kraft papers, which can be coarse to the touch, 724 is coated so that it is smooth and will not let inks like those used in Sharpie Markers bleed through the tape.
