Gummed Paper Tape & Dispensers

Choose water activated paper tape for a greener, high security, low cost tape option

Gummed paper tape is made from renewable natural resources, is 100% recyclable and offers improved security against pilferage. That’s because it penetrates into the fibres of the box before drying and becoming an integral part of the box – and that in turn means that it cannot be peeled back or removed without leaving a visible mark. It also deals better with variations in temperature and humidity than plastic tapes, and even sticks securely on lower grade recycled board. When combined with our innovative range of manual and electronic dispensers it provides a cost effective, time saving and professional carton sealing solution.

The invention of gummed paper tape is generally credited to the incredibly prolific Thomas Edison, who accumulated over 2300 patents over the course of his 84 years. Many of these were in the fields of electronics, such as electric lights, sound recording and motion pictures. Water activated tape for sealing boxes predates the pressure sensitive equivalent (which was the creation of Richard G Drew of 3M, so previously they needed to be held shut with string or twine.
