IPG Introduces Medium-Strength Filament Tape

MONTREAL, PQ, CANADA and SARASOTA, FL | Intertape Polymer Group Inc., a manufacturer of innovative pressure-sensitive tape products, is introducing a new medium-strength (194 lb/in) filament L-clip tape, RG317.

RG317 provides the strength and adhesion characteristics needed for use in L-clip applications to seal non-RSC (regular slotted carton) style boxes, such as five-panel folder, telescoping, chip board, full overlap, and tuck fold cartons. RG317 has been formulated to provide a strong adhesive bond to corrugate while inhibiting “gumming” of the L-clip machine blade that often occurs when using general purpose tapes.

Additionally, the product offers stain/residue-free removal from various non-fibrous surfaces without filament delamination, making this a great new option in specialty applications where clean-removability and strength is required.

“IPG is committed to providing the markets we serve with high quality and cost-effective application-specific solutions,” said Nicole Houston, product manager for Filament Tapes. “RG317 is an excellent option for end-users who need a reliable L-clip tape, but do not necessarily need the high-strength of a 300+ lbs/in. product. In many cases, moving to RG317 will afford the customer significant cost savings.”
