Shurtape Brand HP 535 Hot Melt Packaging Tape

Shurtape Technologies, LLC introduced the new HP 535 hot melt packaging tape. Shurtape® brand HP 535 is a premium grade, heavy duty packaging tape specifically formulated for sealing recycled corrugated cartons, including 100 percent recycled corrugated cardboard.

HP 535 hot melt packaging tape reportedly offers one of the most robust, secure box sealing tape solutions, and could reduce the chance of compromised packages and reducing open returns for manufacturers and distributors.

With a 3-millimeter total thickness and a 50 micron biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) film backing that resists nicks and tears, HP 535 could be a highly durable tape suited for rigorous supply chains. Constructed with a special adhesive formula that offers better initial tack, higher holding power and a long-lasting seal, HP 535 reportedly provides a more secure seal for difficult-to-stick-to carton substrates.

“When shipping items like wine, food or electronics direct to a consumer’s doorstep, producers are dealing with a high-value product that is going through a very harsh shipping environment,” said Bradley Dunlap, senior product manager, packaging, Shurtape Technologies, LLC. “In that scenario, you want a fail-safe tape that will unquestionably withstand the rigors of that supply chain.”

Shurtape offers printing on tape backing, which means HP 535 can be customized with logos, brand names and messages, including bilingual prints.

The new HP 535 is the highest-grade product in the Shurtape® Hot Melt Specialty Packaging Tape family, which includes HP 132® and HP 232®, which are designed specifically for cold temperature environments; and HP 235, a medium duty tape also designed for recycled corrugated cartons.
