There have been lots of changes to the typical corrugated boxes! Recycled Content is something that is becoming very popular! More than 90% of all corrugated boxes are now recovered for recycling. Corrugated boxes now have more than 40% of recycled content as well. While there are benefits to using these recycled materials, there is concern about the performance of an adhesive on these boxes. Have no Fear! Paksouth and 3M have made improvements within the RCT Portfolio to increase performance. These improvements include:

  • Making adhesive softer
    • Allows the adhesive to flow across and into rougher surfaces
    • Improves wet-out adhesion

AS A RESULT= RCT ADHESIVE FLOWS BETTER AND GIVES BETTER BOX ADHESION, ALLOWING YOU TO HAVE A WIDER VARIETY OF SURFACES AND GETS RID OF THE NEED TO WAIT FOR A CHALLENGING BOX SURFACE!

Paksouth and 3M have also created two different kinds of tape to adhere to recycled material.
