Reworking Packaging: Double-Sided Tape vs. Glue Sticks

More than ever, contract packagers need versatile adhesives that will increase their efficiency – especially at times when the adhesive fails, or a quality analysis must be performed. Whatever the cause may be, the box is no longer sealed and you need to perform a rework.

When this happens, it’s important to have a product on hand that can efficiently take your packaging from non-compliant to shelf ready. This way, you never miss a beat during production.

There are a variety of products available to co-packers, but which adhesive is a good solution for repackaging? Although hot melt glue sticks are commonly used, pressure-sensitive, double-sided tape offers an instant bond with increased safety and convenience.
