More than 90% of all corrugated boxes are now recovered for recycling and the average percent of recycled content in a corrugated box is now greater than 40%.  The higher the percent of recycled content, the more challenging it is to seal the box. Recycled cartons have shorter, flatter fibers, and a much different chemical composition of its surface structure.


The Corru-Grip product family makes it possible to reliably close corrugated boxes containing a high percentage of post-consumer fiber.
