Packaging or box sealing tapes are widely used for Packaging Tapesealing, recouperage, and splicing light to heavy weight boxes. They bond instantly, are easy to apply, inexpensive, and add structural strength to packages. Packaging tapes are made with a pressure sensitive adhesive and are resistant to moisture, tearing, chemicals, and a wide range of temperatures.

3M™ Box Sealing Tapes typically consist of a conformable, polypropylene backing and hot melt synthetic rubber adhesive. There are variations in adhesive properties, tackiness, substrates, and backing material.
