What Is Water Activated Tape?
Water-activated tape (WAT) (i.e. kraft paper tape or brown paper tape) produces a strong, secure, and clean one-strip seal. It is applied using a manual or electric paper tape dispenser that cuts the tape to the desired length and automatically applies the appropriate amount of water, activating the adhesive with brush moistening systems. When the tape is applied to a carton, the adhesive penetrates the surface, forming a permanent bond. Water activated tape is better for your customers, better for your business and better for the environment.
Picking The Correct Tape Dispenser: Manual vs. ElectricWhen choosing between a Manual vs Electric tape dispenser, it all boils down to cost and efficiency. If you are packing over 100 cartons per day, an electric model will have more speed and functionality than a manual dispenser. This will enable your shipping department to work faster and be more productive, allowing these machines to ultimately pay for themselves over time. Please keep in mind that having an electric tape dispenser is going to require electricity at your shipping station. Manual tape dispensers are workhorses. Durable, simple design and half the price of an electric. These dispensers are perfect for shipping up to 75 cartons per day and still getting the benefits of using water activated tape.
