How do I use water-activated packaging tape?

To use water activated gummed packaging tape, you’ll need to apply moisture/water to the bottom (non-printed side) of the tape. You can do this manually by using a wet sponge (included with your order) or by using a tape machine/dispenser (sold separately).

Water activated tape (WAT) is used to securely close boxes in a single strip. Our tape bonds instantly to corrugated cartons or box surfaces. When the adhesive is activated with water, it penetrates the box material, and the tape forms a permanent bond with the box. If your box is plastic film coated or heavily painted, the tape may not be able to form a proper bond.
