Scotch® Recycled Corrugate Tape 3073

We designed Scotch® Recycled Corrugate Tape 3073 to quickly and securely stick to a wide variety of substrates, including recycled corrugate and fiberboard. The synthetic rubber hot melt adhesive penetrates the shorter fibers of highly recycled content to create a strong bond that holds box flaps tight, an average 30 lbf.

Typical Applications

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.

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 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.
