Overview

Strong, Adaptable Tape
A polypropylene packaging tape, Scotch® Recycled Corrugate Box Sealing Tape 3072 quickly and securely sticks to a wide variety of substrates, including highly recycled corrugate and fiberboard. On average, a corrugated box consists of 46% recycled content, but this percentage can fluctuate with every box delivery. Unlike conventional box sealing tape that uses a stiff adhesive and adheres to the box surface, Scotch® Recycled Corrugate Box Sealing Tape 3072 utilizes a softer, synthetic rubber, hot melt adhesive. This aggressive adhesive is able to penetrate the shorter fibers on recycled corrugate, flowing into the hills and valleys of the substrate surface and holding the box tightly and securely from production line to delivery.

Recommended Applications
Scotch® Recycled Corrugate Box Sealing Tape 3072 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.

This product is used across many industries and has a wide variety of applications, such as:

  • Box sealing
  • Splicing

Ultra-high tack
Uniquely formulated, Scotch® Recycled Corrugate Box Sealing Tape 3072 is tackier than conventional box sealing tapes and has a conformable, biaxially-oriented polypropylene film backing that retains its strength for a secure and safe seal. In addition, this fast-sealing adhesive is ideal for under-filled boxes, creating a secure seal without breaking the shape of the box.

Rolls can be easily applied by hand, manual dispenser or 3M-Matic™ Case Sealer. In addition, Scotch® Recycled Corrugate Box Sealing Tape 3072 delivers consistent and effective tape performance to help increase productivity with minimal waste, improving unit costs. This product contains no solvents, heavy metals, latex, known allergens or melamine and is FDA approved for indirect food contact per CFR 21, Parts 174-176.
