Scotch® High Tack Box Sealing Tape 3743 is wound on a 3 inch core to be usable in a number of ways including with many mechanical and manual dispensers. It bonds instantly in applications involving hard-to-stick to surfaces such as recycled or coated corrugated. Its synthetic rubber hot melt adhesive provides instant adhesion and strong, moisture resistant bonds. The tough polypropylene film backing resists abrasion, moisture, chemicals, and scuffing, making this tape an effective solution to seal cartons in general industrial, food, beverage, medical pharmaceutical, paper, print, electronics and distribution centers. Polypropylene is tough yet flexible to help maintain a strong seal over box seams, edges and corners. The tape unwinds easily smoothly and easily from the roll for controlled dispensing. It offers a high edge tear and split resistance for secure box closure. This tape has been engineered to be an effective box sealing tape and complies with ASTM D1974-92 and meets CID A-A-1684B.

What is Box Sealing Tape?

Heavy duty sealing tape, also known as packing tape or adhesive tape, is designed to securely seal heavy weight or over-packed cartons and packages for shipping and handling. Our tape’s high strength combined with its quick stick and resistance to splitting or tearing makes it popular for overseas and export shipping. The tape can be applied with a portable hand-held dispenser or stationary definite length dispenser.
