Water Activated Tape

Water Activated Tape

Sigma Supply offers water activated tape (or gummed tape). This tape bonds instantly to both virgin and recycled fiber surfaces and therefore, generate an immediate destructive bond resulting in a tamper evident package. WAT is offered in both fiberglass reinforced and plain paper and it has many styles available in standard prints or customized prints to display your corporate message. They all have one common feature… uncompromising quality.

  • Water Activated Tape (WAT)

What is WAT - More Info

  • Secure Bond – our starch based adhesive aggressively bonds to corrugated cartons, even in dusty or dirty environments
    Custom Imprinting – advertise your company and products, provide directions for freight handlers and improve the appearance of your package
    All Weather Use – not affected by extreme hot or cold temperatures
    Protection – a carton sealed with water-activated tape can’t be opened without leaving a broken seal

WAT Paper Tape (Gummed Paper Tape)

Designed for fast, permanent adhesion and superior strength. Cracking of the adhesive surface provides our paper tape with excellent flexibility for sealing carton corners, edges,  and irregular surfaces. Use paper tapes to seal lightweight or standard sized packages or cartons that will be shipped in unitized loads or full pallets.

WAT Reinforced Tape (Gummed Tape)

Available in a wide variety of sizes and product construction, reinforced tapes are designed to provide consistent performance in carton sealing applications where durability, extra strength, and reliability are required. Extra strong fiberglass yarns are bonded between the high tensile strength sheets for an extra margin of strength.
