Gummed Paper Tape
Eco-Friendly, secure case sealing tape
- Gummed paper tape is the only tape that is 100% recyclable and biodegradable.
- The adhesive coated to the kraft paper is a starch based glue which is completely soluble in water.
- No solvents are used in it’s manufacture and the adhesive gum breaks down easily in the recycling process.
Adhesion strength to cardboard is unbeatable
Pressure sensitive self adhesive tapes rely on molecular attraction to stick to a surface. Gummed paper tape is water activated and is applied wet.
The wet gum adhesive soaks into the cardboard and fuses the tape to the box. Once it has dried, within a few minutes, it is extremely difficult to remove.
The gummed paper tape in the table below has a 38mm core and is 'gum-side in'. We can also supply gummed paper tape 76mm internal diameter core, and also 'gum-side out' if require
This is the most commonly purchased gummed paper tape.
The fibreglass strands that criss-cross the tape make it impossible to open without a sharp tool, and combined with the water activated adhesive, makes it the most secure case sealing tape available.
Because of its seal strength only one length of tape is needed to ensure a secure parcel.
