Intertape Polymer Group Inc. (Montreal, Quebec) has introduced a new 1100 premium hot melt carton sealing tape designed specifically for optimal closure of highly recycled corrugate, including 100 percent recycled box. It is manufactured with proprietary Corru-Grip™ adhesive technology. The higher the percent of recycled content, the more challenging it can be to seal the box. Recycled cartons have shorter, flatter fibers, and a much different chemical composition of its surface structure. This Corru-Grip™ adhesive formulation can successfully seal boxes in wider ranges of temperature and humidity than traditional hot melt carton sealing tape products, according to the company.
