Repulpable case-sealing tape



Made of brown kraft paper, the new Scotch 2622 repulpable box sealing tape can be recycled along with the corrugated case. Because the pressure-sensitive tape becomes a seamless part of the box in the recycling process, it eliminates tape from the waste stream and encourages easy corrugated recycling. Scotch 2622 maintains its seal at temperatures ranging from -30° F. to 120° F. for up to six months. Repulpability of tape and adhesive has been judged according to TAPPI UM-213, Procedure A.
