How do I seal a carton for shipping? What is the best way to seal a box for shipping? Gummed tape is more secure than plastic tape and creates a natural bond with the carton flaps. You only need two pieces of tape per box. One top, and one bottom, versus the multiple strips of plastic tape many use to try and keep boxes closed..
The world's leading manufacturer of water activated tape dispensers and systems offers the Better Pack® 500. Rugged and reliable, the BP500 electric tape dispenser simplifies the process of sealing cartons with reinforced, water activated tape (WAT). The BP500 is developed in accordance with over 90 years of manufacturing and field experience to offer the strength, safety, and stability that is synonymous with all Better Packages® products.
Over the years we have heard gummed tape dispensers being called tape wetters, tape lickers, and gummed tape machines. Gummed tape is stronger, faster, and easier to use than any other method to close a box, carton, mailer, or manila envelopes. Small boxes are much easier to close with paper tape. We also have a full service and repair center for all Gummed Tape Dispensers at our home office.
