Water activated tape – also commonly known as gummed paper tape – is rapidly becoming the carton sealer of choice in the order fulfilment sector, with the world’s largest operations using it exclusively in favour of plastic tapes. So why should a product that looks quaintly old-fashioned be so popular?
Over the next seven weeks we will be posting a series of blogs that will highlight the seven advantages of water activated tape (WAT):
- an integral closure
- tamper evidence
- 100% recyclability
- temperature tolerance
- improved presentation
- cost savings
- increased productivity with reduced operator fatigue
Each one is a compelling reason to change from using plastic, and together they prompt the question – why isn’t everyone using it?
Tegrabond® water activated tape and manual/electronic WAT dispensers are supplied by Southgate through their network of approved distributors throughout the UK and across Europe.
