Intertape Polymer Group expands its line of carton sealing tape

April 3, 2013

By Intertape Polymer Group Inc.

Intertape Polymer Group Inc. ("Intertape", “IPG” or the "Company"), a leading North American manufacturer of tapes and films, has announced the expansion of its Corru-Grip carton sealing tape line designed specifically for optimal closure of highly recycled corrugate, including 100% recycled box. This Corru-Grip adhesive formulation can successfully seal boxes in wider ranges of temperature and humidity than traditional hot melt carton sealing tape products.

“Our 2012 launch of the 1100 Corru-Grip adhesive technology in our premium hot melt carton sealing tape showed a measurable improvement in both performance and sales,” stated James Apap Bologna, vice president of Corporate Marketing & Communications.

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.

“We are very excited to launch the expanded Corru-Grip product family, which rounds out the line, and makes it approachable for most any box closure application,” stated Mary Jo Burgess, director of Product Management – PSCST Systems. “It addresses a broader application base, and the on-going need for a reliable closure solution for corrugated boxes containing a high percentage of post-consumer fiber.”

For more information about Corru-Grip or IPG’s full offering of pressure-sensitive carton sealing tapes, please contact Mary Jo Burgess at mburgess@itape.com.
