This company has expanded its line of Scotch® recycled corrugate tapes to offer options for tape weight, backing strength and performance. Designed specifically for use with recycled corrugated boxes, the tapes reportedly offer up to 10 times the tack of conventional box sealing tapes. As a result, the versatile, super-sticky tape can stick to most of today’s packaging materials.

Nearly all of the products being shipped today use corrugated cardboard; with upwards of 85% of it being recovered, the majority of boxes contain some recycled content,” saidBrian Kenady, U.S. Marketing manager. “With so much variation, it is important that companies are equipped with sealing tape that doesn’t require multiple applications in order to keep the products secure. It makes sense not only from an environmental footprint perspective but also from the bottom line.”
