Addressing the challenges of packaging and shipping in food and beverage markets

Some of the most critical issues facing businesses as they compete in the food and beverage markets are customer faith in product surety, improving process efficiencies, manufacturing flexibility and brand/package differentiation. 3M Box Sealing Tapes help address these challenges: they can be applied at high speeds with great consistency, offering greater assurance of security for each package, and certain tapes can also be printed with your logo to add brand awareness. Finally, package sealing can also be automated by adding a case sealer that offers the same traits of speed, consistency and security while running automatically so you can redeploy valuable labor.

  • High Speed

    3M Box Sealing Tapes stick at first application, keeping parcels closed down the entire packaging line, allowing more boxes per minute.

  • Security

    Scotch box sealing tape offers a strong adhesive bond to the box that help prevent tampering and tape failure during shipping and delivery.

  • Consistency

    Many boxes are becoming very difficult to adhere to, especially in cold environments. For reliable application of a reliable tape, trust the combination of 3M-Matic™ Adjustable Flap Folding Case Sealer 8000af and Scotch® High Tack Box Sealing Tape 311+.

  • Automated

    Adjust to seasonal demands and labor shortages - we can help reengineer your packaging line with 3M case sealers and packaging tape.
