Overview

Scotch® Recycled Corrugate Tape 3073
Recommended for use on
regular slotted containers (RSC)
weighing up to 100 lbs.
Synthetic Rubber Adhesive Penetrates Shorter Fibers
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 Tape 3073 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.

Biaxially-Oriented Backing Resists Abrasion
For additional strength and flexibility, Scotch® Recycled Corrugate Tape 3073 features a biaxially-orientated polypropylene backing that resists abrasion, moisture, chemicals, and scuffing, keeping boxes secure from production line through delivery.

Scotch® Recycled Corrugate Tape 3073 is made with an adhesive that contains over 10% bio-based content. All recycled corrugate tapes use recycled materials in the core to help with sustainability goals.

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.
