Water-activated paper tape is one of the best choices you can make for securely and quickly sealing cardboard cartons. While there are many different tape options, none of them are as green & secure as water-activated tape. And, not only is it secure but is completely recyclable meaning it doesn’t have to be removed from boxes to be recycled. Water-activated paper tape is also biodegradable helping to lower your company’s environmental impact.
With the heat of summer and its humidity or the chill of winter, keeping packages securely closed is always an important consideration. Dust, rain, humidity and extreme temperatures all work to unseal even the most carefully placed tape. This is where you can win with water-activated tape. The durability of water-activated paper tape makes it the perfect choice for closing those hard to seal packages and keeping them that way.
Unlike pressure sensitive adhesives like masking tape or standard packaging tape, the adhesive on water-activated tape penetrates the surface of the cardboard container and bonds with it, creating an extremely secure seal. This additional bonding not only keeps the cartons closed like they should be but keeps the package from being tampered with. Since the tape is impossible to remove intact, these tamper-evident seals will allow you to ship your product without worrying about theft or tampering. You will be able to save money and have less liability for the boxes once they leave your facility.
Water-activated paper tapes are available with standard printed messages or can also be printed with your company’s logo or message. This is a great way to further increase the security of your package while giving your marketing efforts a boost, all for a minimal cost per package
