  • Best Practices for 3M Scotch Industrial Box Sealing Tape 371

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Application

      Application of Scotch® Box Sealing Tape 371 is most easily accomplished at room temperature. At colder temperatures, approaching 32°F (0°C), the adhesive becomes more firm. Once applied, Scotch® Tape 371 performs well throughout the normal temperature ranges typically encountered by packaged products in shipping and storage environments.
