Paper Tapes

Water-Activated Tapes

Widely known as Gummed Tapes or Water-Activated Tapes (WAT) – A paper tape that uses water activated adhesive to seal the boxes. There are 2 variants:

Reinforced Water Activated Tape

Comes with fiberglass liners to secure heavy weight boxes.

Non-Reinforced Water Activate Tape

Starch based adhesive applied to provide secure bonding.


Permanent box closure – eliminates the use of multiple layers of tapes
Secures Bond – our starch-based adhesive quickly bonds to corrugated cartons, even in dusty or dirty environments
All-Weather Use – not affected by extreme hot or cold temperatures
Pilfer proof for security – a carton sealed with water-activated tape can’t be opened without leaving a broken seal. Tamper proof once sealed.
Durability and strength – extra strong fiberglass yarns are bonded between the high tensile strength sheets for an extra margin of strength.
Environmentally friendly – The use of single-use BOPP/Plastic tape is eliminated
Closure appearance – Has great appealing aesthetics
