Scotch® Box Sealing Tape 353 securely closes a wide variety of box and carton materials, including corrugated boxes with high recycled content. Moisture-resistant polyester backing that resists abrasion, chemicals and scuffing - all the rugged treatment that cartons take in transit - to hold strong throughout the shipping process.
This tape is particularly resistant to splitting along seam or score lines. Our tape is suitable for use on single- and double-walled corrugated boxes weighing up to 100 lbs., including those with high recycled content.
A tough tape that is also environmentally friendly
Scotch® High Performance Box Sealing Tape 353 features a biaxially oriented polyester backing with a pressure-sensitive rubber resin adhesive. The tape complies with environmental considerations of ASTM D1974-92 and meets CID A-A-1684B.
We developed this tape to help ensure that packages arrive intact
Our heavy duty sealing tape, also known as packing tape or adhesive tape, is designed to securely seal heavy weight or over-packed cartons and packages for shipping and handling. The tape's high strength combined with its quick stick and resistance to splitting or tearing makes it popular for overseas and export shipping. The tape can be applied with a portable hand-held dispenser or stationary definite length dispenser.
