Industrial Products ® WATER-ACTIVATED TAPE (WAT) Most pressure-sensitive tapes take time to develop a “destructive” bond when applied to a porous substrate. Water-activated tape (or gummed tape) bonds instantly to both virgin and recycled fiber surfaces and therefore, generate an immediate destructive bond resulting in a tamper evident package. PAPER TAPES BENEFITS: • Aggressive bond – starch based adhesive aggressively bonds to corrugated cartons, even in dusty or dirty environments • All weather use – not affected by extreme hot or cold temperatures • Kind to the environment – paper tapes are 100% recyclable and repulpable, as well as 100% biodegradable • Protection – a carton sealed with water-activated tape can’t be opened without leaving a broken seal REINFORCED TAPES BENEFITS: • Secure bond – testing proves IPG tape bonds faster than any competitor’s tape of like construction • All weather use – not affected by extreme hot or cold temperatures • Superior strength – fiberglass yarns seal your cartons with an extra measure of strength • Takes on the dust – starch based adhesive absorbs dust and bonds securely to the carton. Sealing the seam also acts as a dust barrier • Environmentally-friendly – reinforced tapes are considered “recycling-friendly” as they generally do not interfere with the corrugated box recycling process • Pilferage proof – fiber will be irreparably damaged upon tape removal AHCAR006CBR1IIT Ariva has a full line of water-activated tapes and dispensers available.
