The Seven Advantages of WAT

The Seven Advantages of WAT

Water activated tape – also commonly known as gummed paper tape – is rapidly becoming the carton sealer of choice in the order fulfilment sector, with the world’s largest operations using it exclusively in favour of plastic tapes. So why should a product that looks quaintly old-fashioned be so popular?

Over the next seven weeks we will be posting a series of blogs that will highlight the seven advantages of water activated tape (WAT):

  • an integral closure
  • tamper evidence
  • 100% recyclability
  • temperature tolerance
  • improved presentation
  • cost savings
  • increased productivity with reduced operator fatigue

Each one is a compelling reason to change from using plastic, and together they prompt the question – why isn’t everyone using it?

Tegrabond® water activated tape and manual/electronic WAT dispensers are supplied by Southgate through their network of approved distributors throughout the UK and across Europe.
