INTERTAPE POLYMER GROUP INTRODUCES NEW RG317 MEDIUM STRENGTH FILAMENT TAPE FOR L-CLIP BOX CLOSURE APPLICATIONS

MONTREAL, QUEBEC and SARASOTA, FLORIDA— Intertape Polymer Group Inc. is introducing a new medium-strength (194 lb/in) filament L-clip tape, RG317.

IPG’s new 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/inch product. In many cases, moving to RG317 will afford the customer significant cost savings.”
