MEMPHIS, Tenn., June 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Verso Corporation (OTCPink: VRSZQ), a leading producer of flexible packaging, technical, and label and converting papers, today introduced GlazeTape, a family of water-activated and paint-masking tape base papers, and announced the expansion of its GlazeWrap family of lightweight uncoated machine-glazed (MG) papers for food and medical flexible packaging.
The GlazeTape product family, designed as base paper for industrial tape end-uses, ranges from water-activated tapes used in shipping and construction to oil and grease resistant (OGR) paint-masking tapes used in automotive applications, appliances and other durable goods manufacturing applications.
