Gummed Paper TapeGummed paper tape has been around for years but with the latest drive for eco friendly packaging paper tape has really come into its own. Historically the water activation has been a bit of a problem but with recent introduction of automatic dispensers the many benefits have been realised across many different industries. We also supply a range of manual and automatic gummed paper tape dispensers to make using paper tape even easier than using normal plastic tape.
Here's some of the main benefits:
- Use Less Tape: The water activation of the gum adhesive gives a super strong hold which doesn't let go! This aggressive grab means only 1 strip of tape is more than adequate for most box sealing requirements.
- Tamper Evidence: Because of the total bond achieved, paper tape gives a clear visible proof if a packaging seal has been tampered with, unlike plastic tape which can be peeled off without visible trace.
- 100% Recyclable & Biodegradable: Gummed paper tape is manufactured from renewable paper which is both recyclable and biodegradable.
- Temperature Tolerant: Even in extreme temperature variations gummed tape remains stable. In extreme heat, humidity, and cold it retains its strength whilst also remaining highly resistant to aging.
