What is water activated tape?

Water activated tape (WAT) is a type of packaging tape that uses a water-activated adhesive to bond with cardboard. The best way to apply water activated tape is with a packaging tape dispenser or a sponge (included with all orders).

Our packaging tape is made from kraft paper and reinforced by fiberglass strands to keep packages reliably closed, making it a secure packaging alternative. Once applied, water activated tape cannot be unpeeled; it is a natural theft deterrent and exposes any signs of tampering.

This type of tape is also called gummed tape, gum tape, or paper tape.
