Folded-Edge® Technology is a feature available with ShurSEAL Packaging Solutions that folds both edges of the packaging tape along the length of the carton as it’s applied. The patented folded-edge attachment is mounted to the tape applicator’s dancer arm, providing the ability to fold the tape edges from 1 mm to 3 mm.
This edge-folding technique delivers several benefits, including:
- Reinforced Strength: Adds more reliability in automated packaging systems by strengthening the tape’s edge – increasing the relative energy to break by 25%. This additional strength reduces the risk of the tape being nicked and broken, providing an added layer of security to keep carton contents secure from damage, contamination and theft.
- Ready to Open Seals: Creates a secure, easy-to-open carton seal that doesn’t require a knife or other sharp instrument to open. Essentially, it creates a dry edge that allows the tape to be grasped and removed by hand, reducing the risk of product damage and worker injury attributed to knife cuts.
