Why choose water activated paper tape?

Water activated paper tape is a great alternative to traditional plastic packing tape. It is made from paper lined with a starch-based adhesive that requires moistening with water to activate it.

Also called gummed paper tape, it is a tough and durable taping option for sealing cardboard boxes. Once applied, it creates a strong bond with the cardboard and offers tamper-evident protection. Once it has been removed from a box, it cannot be reapplied.

It’s also an eco-friendly packing tape option, as it is recyclable and made from a renewable resource. You can check out six reasons to try gummed paper tape here
