Paper packing tape is the new ecological alternative to plastic tape and is proving very popular for online stores and retailers alike. Instead of using a plastic backing material it uses paper instead so bio-degrades much quicker than plastic tape and allows it to be recycled along with the cardboard box at the end of its life.
Paper tape comes in two different forms; one is water-activated gummed paper tape which has a special dispenser to ‘wet’ the adhesive before application to the box, the other is a self-adhesive paper tape that comes already sticky like a normal tape so you can use it with the same dispensers and in the same way.
Water activated gum adhesive gives a very strong bond helping you to reduce the amount of tape used, as well as being the most environmentally friendly tape available. This, along with the super-fast automatic dispenser, is helping packing operations pack faster than ever before.
