Gummed Paper Tape
Gummed paper tape is a strong adhesive tape which is used extensively in the packaging industry. It has a natural glue adhesive which is activated by water and binds to the cardboard fibres to provide a tamper-evident seal. You can get standard gummed paper tape and reinforced gummed paper tape. Because the tape bonds with the fibres of the cardboard box, you can’t remove it without leaving behind clear evidence of damage. This also provides additional strength to your boxes which you can rely on when your boxes are in transit. With the natural glue adhesive, this tape is 100% recyclable and biodegradable. So when you choose water-activated paper tape, you're choosing strong and biodegradable tape. You can also benefit from the aesthetics of brown paper tape. When you apply it to delivery boxes, the brown colour looks great. And it also highlights your eco-friendly credentials. You'll find that this brown gummed tape is also tolerant of varying temperatures. This makes it ideal for exporting goods abroad. Using standard plastic tape for shipping goods can result in the tape pealing off the box. With gummed paper tape, you can avoid that problem. While our standard brown gummed tape is very strong, you can also invest in some reinforced gummed paper tape. You may choose reinforced tape if you are sealing heavier loads. Equally, you may choose reinforced paper tape if your products are valuable or fragile. Reinforced gummed paper tape has cross-woven glass fibres running through it for extra strength and resistance. Using gummed tape requires the use of a dispenser. You can choose from manual dispensers or electronic. Gummed tape dispensers moisten the tape as it is dispensed to activate the seal. You can set electronic gummed tape dispensers to cut and dispense at pre-programmed lengths. This allows you to improve productivity in your packing stations. Alternatively, you can easily move a manual dispenser between packing stations as no power supply is needed. Order your gummed paper tapes from Springpack online today.
