Water-Activated Tape

Water-Activated Tape: Custom Printed and Unprinted

This is paper water-activated tape (WAT), that offers advantages other carton sealing methods do not. WAT Tape literally bonds with the corrugated carton, while most plastic tapes do not form a permanent seal. Paper water-activated tape is strong. It’s tamper evident. It gives packages a neat, professional appearance and protects a company’s brand image. AND it’s environmentally friendly.

We can supply plain tape, reinforced tape, and preprinted tape in white or tan.
