Overview

The average corrugated box consists of 46 percent recycled content, and that number can fluctuate with every box delivery. While conventional box sealing tape uses a stiff adhesive that adheres to the box surface, Scotch® Recycled Corrugate Box Sealing Tape 3072 utilizes a softer synthetic rubber hot melt that actually penetrates the shorter fibers on recycled corrugate, flowing into the hills and valleys of the substrate surface to provide a stronger, more secure hold. In fact, our adhesive is 10 times stickier than other box sealing tapes.

For additional strength and flexibility, Scotch® Recycled Corrugate Box Sealing Tape 3072 features a biaxially-orientated polypropylene backing that resists abrasion, moisture, chemicals, and scuffing, keeping boxes secure from production line through delivery.

Scotch® Recycled Corrugate Tapes can be applied by hand for low volume packing with a hand-held tape dispenser or with a 3M-Matic™ Case Sealer for high productivity packing. Meets FDA requirements for indirect food contact.
