Water Activated Tape
The ultimate secure solution for sealing corrugated cartons, is water activated paper tape. Often known as gummed paper tape, this paper tape has an adhesive that is activated by water. Once activated, this adhesive binds the paper tape to the corrugated surface, and literally becomes part of the box.
This tape is available with or without reinforcement fibres running through the paper, giving even greater strength where needed.
Together with it’s unrivalled strength properties, paper tape is 100% recyclable and does not need to be taken from the box it has sealed, to be recycled. This tape is very popular with our online retail clients, where parcels are arriving with a consumer, and the outer packaging can be easily recycled.
Water activated tape needs to be dispensed through a special dispenser, which applies the water to activate the adhesive. We supply both tape and dispensers to clients across Europe, and our account care team will be glad to discuss your requirement!
