Boost Packaging Line Efficiencies and Reduce Risk with ShurSEAL® Folded Edge® Technology

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.

25% More Strength Required to Break Tape

Doubling the thickness of the edge of tape along the length of the box increases seal strength and reduces the risk of the edges being nicked or broken.

Prevent Damage, Contamination and Theft

Enhanced seal strength by folding the edges of the tape, along with unmatched wipe-down force via the tape applicator to deliver full utilization of the tape’s adhesive, provide an added layer of security to keep contents secure from costly damage, contamination and theft.
