Water Activated Tape

We offer a selection of water-activated tape suitable for both manual and electronic dispensers, available in standard, reinforced, brown, and white varieties.

Gummed paper tape harnesses the power of water to activate its adhesive properties, delivering a robust and environmentally-friendly bond to secure your cartons. This tape is offered in various dimensions for your specific requirements.

Water-activated gum tape provides a cost-effective and eco-conscious solution for your packaging sealing needs. It excels in adhesion, forming a sturdy connection with the carton surface.

What sets it apart is its composition, crafted from renewable resources such as kraft paper and vegetable-based adhesive, resulting in a product that is fully biodegradable and recyclable—unlike tapes derived from plastic materials.
