Let’s Discuss about Gummed Paper Tapes
There are several different techniques that can be used for sealing in shipping. For the sake of product security, you might want to use tape known by a variety of names: gummed paper tape, water-activated tape, gum tape, paper tape. You might not be sure what this tape is, but if you order products on the internet, you’ve seen and experienced it. It is the white or brown tape that frequently seals your boxes, and is a challenge to open. That challenge is absolutely a part of its charisma.
What is Gummed Paper Tape?
Gummed Paper Tape is primarily manufactured from brown or natural coloured paper and starch-based adhesive. It can be made entirely of paper, but may consist of various layers of paper with polyethylene or fiberglass strings for additional strength. When the adhesive is “triggered” with water, it infiltrates the carton material and the tape formulates a permanent bond with the carton, making it challenging to open.
