Water Activated Tape Dispenser
Water-activated tape, otherwise known as gummed tape dispensers, generates an immediate, strong bond resulting in a superior seal on corrugated cartons. Starch based adhesives are applied to reinforced paper stripping that becomes active when wet. A water-activated tape dispenser provides a simple and fast way to size, wet and cut water-activated tape for closing corrugate cartons.
What is Gummed Paper Tape?
Gummed tape is also known as water activated tape, gummed brown paper tape, reinforced paper tape, gummed tape, corrugator tape, paper packaging tape, box tape and Kraft tape. Gummed tape provides a stronger bond than pressure sensitive tape on today’s high recycled content shipping cartons.
Features and Benefits of Water Activated Tape
Add Strength To Your Seal
Water activated tapes are commonly printed on white or natural coloured paper. With a strong adhesive, it creates a sturdy seal that will hold under a variety of packaging conditions. Reinforced tape options are available for packaging solutions for heavy products that require additional strength in their seals or box reinforcement.
Increase Corrugated Box Security
Water-activated tape forms a tight seal on your boxes that shows clear tamper evidence if the case is opened. Commonly referred to as a destructive seal, water-activated tape will permanently bond with corrugate material. Any attempt to remove the tape or open the box will leave direct evidence of tampering.
Custom Printed Gummed Tape
Gummed tape is an excellent option for product branding during shipping. With paper based backing water-activated tape is customizable. Add a splash of company colour or even full logo prints to your boxes.
Customize Tape Usage
Water-activated tape packaging machines will measure out, cut and wet the exact amount of tape you need for your cartons consistently. With handy tape length settings, a water-activated tape dispenser makes sure you use the right amount of tape for each box sealed.
Water Activated Tape Dispensers Reduce Strain
A water-activated tape dispenser will measure, wet and cut each piece of tape you apply. This eliminates the strain of repetitively using a hand-held tape dispenser. Hand held tape dispenser can be a common source for repetitive motion injury to the wrist or forearm.
