SHURTAPE: Packaging Tape

June 3, 2013

The new HP 235 packaging tape is a standard-gauge tape solution that can reportedly deliver better performance and adhesion on highly recycled corrugate, including 100% recycled. As the recycled content in corrugated containers increases, so does the volume of fiber and dust, which can affect packaging tape’s ability to create a secure seal. HP 235 is a 2.0-mil, pressure-sensitive packaging tape with an enhanced adhesive engineered specifically for sealing highly recycled corrugated containers, particularly 100% recycled. The optimized adhesive formula reportedly results in higher adhesion and higher shear, and also provides for increased fiber tear when the tape is removed, offering tamper-evident security.
