3M Box Sealing Tapes

The full job of a package is containment, protection and communication. The right tapes and other accessories can help your packages get to your customers intact.


Consistent, reliable packaging tape for all markets

A single inventive way of solving a customer’s problem more than 90 years ago led to a breakthrough that became known as “Scotch® Tape”; an invention that changed the world. Today, the curious minds at 3M continue to maintain the legacy of the original Scotch® Tape by meeting customer needs everyday and never compromising on performance.

A variety of packing tape available for your operation

Reliable performance proven over time has formed a bond of trust with Scotch® Tape. This is why it remains the number one brand for packaging, bundling, reinforcing solutions and more. At 3M, we stake our reputation on delivering the very best, most reliable tapes every day so you can trust Scotch® Tape to protect your reputation, as well.

  • Acrylic pressure-sensitive adhesives applied to a tape backing provide excellent adhesion over a broad range of temperatures and substrates.

  • A hot melt synthetic rubber adhesive is applied to a tape backing so that when it cools it makes an excellent quick-stick adhesive with good hold for recycled corrugate.

  • When moistened, the cornstarch-based adhesive interacts with porous surfaces to form a powerful bond that shows immediately if tampered with before delivery.

  • Engineered to meet virtually any box closing, palletizing, strapping, bundling and reinforcing challenge.

  • Splicing and bundling tapes with high-temp versions for processes that have a bake cycle, suitable for hand tearing or machine dispensing.

  • Designed for excellent handling and quick stick to a variety of substrates as well as easy opening when used as a closure.
