Adhesive Tape for Corrugated Board and Corrugated Box Manufacture
With over £50 billion worth of material produced worldwide each year, the corrugated cardboard industry is one of the largest segments in the packaging industry. Corrugated board is produced from cellulose and consists in its simplest form of a thin corrugated sheet between two smooth layers. The secret of the material’s strength is stability through the even distribution of pressure and there are versions which have two, three or more corrugated layers. Corrugated board can be customised to package many kinds of products, from extravagant champagne flutes to diesel engines.
Corrugated cardboard is produced on cutting-edge high-output machinery that can produce 1,000 square metres per minute. tesa offers the corrugated industry a full assortment of high-performance adhesive tapes that can be integrated into the production process, from splicing tapes for roll changes to double sided tape for box closure, strapping tapes and filament tapes for handle reinforcement, and tear tape for opening cardboard packaging.
