Although often overlooked, damage due to sharp instruments is a case sealing issue that many organizations face. Using a knife to open cartons can cause product damage, as well as increase the risk of personal injury. That’s why The ShurSEAL® Solution offers Folded-Edge® Technology, which eliminates the need to open cartons with a knife.
Knife cuts and nicks can cause product damage, which may deem items unsaleable and result in costly returns. Cuts and lacerations are another risk, which can lead to worker’s compensation payouts, lost time and more. The ShurSEAL Solution, a carton sealing system that combines Shurtape® HP Series packaging tape with a PrimeLoc™ tape applicator*, minimizes the damage and danger associated with knife cuts with Folded-Edge Technology.
This feature folds the edges of the tape along the length of the carton, delivering the following benefits:
- Ready to Open – 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 work injury along the supply chain.
- Reinforced Strength – Increases the strength of the tape edge to keep the seal intact, particularly at its most vulnerable failure point – the major flaps where the tape folds over the edge of the carton. This reduces the risk of the tape being nicked and broken, providing an added layer of security to keep contents secure from damage, contamination and pilferage.
“You may have every precaution in place to ensure the quality and safety of your product, but you can’t always control what happens beyond your facility,” said Bill DeWitt, market manager for packaging at Shurtape. “By eliminating the knife and adding strength to the seal, Folded-Edge Technology gives back more of that control, while helping to protect your product and those handling it.”
