Use less tape and seal cartons faster with water-activated tape and dispensers.
Plastic tape has its place in packing, but e-commerce shipping may not be the best application. Plastic tape isn’t secure or tamper evident. To compensate, many packers use several strips of plastic tape to try to seal cartons or wrap boxes. E-commerce companies send high volumes of boxes. Using multiple strips on each box becomes wasteful and expensive, resulting in extra unnecessary costs for businesses. Using plastic tape is not the most environmentally responsible choice for companies that send high volumes of packages.
Water-activated tape, on the other hand, is secure and tamper evident. It only requires one strip of tape to seal a carton, meaning less material waste and a more sustainable, eco-friendly option.
Packers who use plastic tape to seal cartons tend to use multiple tape strips. Plastic tape sits on top of a carton instead of adhering to the cardboard. It doesn’t create a secure seal. Therefore, packers want to make sure the carton contents remain safe in transit, so they apply many strips of tape. That’s a lot of wasted material and tape application time.
Water-activated tape adds an extra layer of strength to cartons, allowing for heavy, bulky items to remain intact and secure while in transit
Water-activated tape creates a permanent bond when applied to corrugated cartons, offering theft prevention when shipping valuable items
Just one strip of water-activated tape is needed to securely seal your carton, versus multiple strips of plastic pressure-sensitive tape
