Whether applied manually or with an automatic carton sealing machine, this tape bonds quickly. The production grade hot melt packaging tape is for sealing medium-weight cartons in cold temperature environments, such as produce packaging, meat and poultry processing, dairy facilities, cold weather moving/storage, and unheated warehouses in cold climates. It has a higher shear than acrylic adhesive, along with lower heat and UV resistance. The core is 3". Engineered to deliver an instant, permanent bond to cartons, HP 232® is recommended for use in manual and automated industrial carton sealing applications in subfreezing temperatures ranging from 20 F to 75 F.
