MONTREAL, QUEBEC and BRADENTON, FLORIDA — Intertape Polymer Group Inc., a leading North American manufacturer of carton sealing tapes, is proud to introduce a new 1100 premium hot melt carton sealing tape designed specifically for optimal closure of highly recycled corrugate, including 100% recycled box. It is manufactured with proprietary Corru-Grip™ adhesive technology. According to Cathy Foley of the American Forest & Paper Association, “More than 90% of all corrugated boxes are now recovered for recycling and the average percent of recycled content in a corrugated box is now greater than 40%.” The higher the percent of recycled content, the more challenging it is 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.
