How Secure Are Your Boxes?
Are your boxes open to shipping damage?
One in ten packages arrive damaged to end line consumers due to inadequate packaging materials.
The right tapes and adhesives can mean the difference between maintaining product integrity and delivering an open or damaged box.
Optimizing your box sealing with the right tapes and adhesives can reduce waste, improve your customer retention, and lower your environmental impact.
Sealing Your Box
Are you using the right tape for your package?
73% of consumers are unlikely to purchase from the company again after receiving a damaged item.
Tapes and adhesives that aren’t designed for the carton you’re using can lead to product damage and package returns.
Different types of tapes are ideal for different cartons and different applications.
For example, cartons that are created with recycled content are sealed best with hot melt tapes that are specifically formulated for the short fibers in recycled corrugate.
Hot Melt tape, such as Scotch Recycled Corrugate Box Sealing Tape 3073 is ideal for penetrating the shorter fibers of corrugated boxes with high recycled content.
Acrylic tape such as 3M VHB Tape 5952 is ideal for extreme temperatures, or for shipments that may be in a warehouse for an extended period.
Water-Activated tape such as Venom Light Duty Reinforced Water-Activated Tape, is commonly used in e-commerce shipping because it delivers a powerful bond to corrugated surfaces.
No matter what application you’re using your tapes for, investing in a tape that can effectively keep your box sealed will reduce product returns and improve your customer experience.
