Prevent Theft with Tamper-Evident Tape

Prevent products from being stolen by sealing your cartons with tamper-evident water-activated tape.

Package Pilfering Is Frustrating for Customers and Damaging for Your Company

When a customer’s online order arrives to his home or office and he finds that items are missing, it is a frustrating, disappointing and inefficient experience. The customer now needs to contact your company to rectify the situation which decreases customer satisfaction. From your customer’s perspective, this loss undermines your company’s reputation, even though you’re not directly responsible.

You can, however, control the chances of product theft happening to your packages.

Using water-activated tape to seal your cartons helps you avoid this scenario as well as inefficient and expensive product replacement efforts.

Water-Activated Tape Creates a Secure Seal

Water-activated tape is 350% stronger than plastic tape.

Water-activated tape creates a permanent bond when applied to corrugated cartons, offering package security and evidence of tampering and theft. A secure seal deters theft because it is difficult for anyone to access the contents of the box via “press and grab” theft methods commonly used with plastic tape sealing. If they do attempt to access a box sealed with water-activated paper tape, the effort is immediately noticeable.

Use Water-Activated Tape, Not Plastic Tape, to Prevent Product Theft

E-commerce customers expect to receive their orders intact. But the carton sealing you’re using may undermine that expectation. If you’re using plastic tape for carton sealing, you’re putting your products and customer satisfaction at risk.

What is "Press and Grab" Theft?

Plastic tape remains on top of a carton and is not tamper-evident, as opposed to water-activated tape which adheres to the corrugated cardboard material. With plastic tape, thieves can push open the carton and take high value items without a trace. 

To protect your e-commerce shipments and your customer satisfaction, consider using water-activated tape to seal your cartons. Water-activated tape bonds to the carton, making its seal 350% stronger than plastic tape.
