Paper Gummed Tape & Dispenser

Reinforced Paper Gummed Tapes

Paper gummed tape also known as water activated tape or simply, gummed tape is starch- or sometimes glue-based adhesive on a Kraft paper backing which becomes sticky when moistened.

The reinforced paper gummed tape consists of two layers of paper with a cross-pattern of fiberglass filaments laminated between. The laminating adhesive had previously been asphalt but now is more commonly a hot-melt atactic polypropylene. This version gives the paper gummed tape addition strength and durability

Reinforced paper gummed tape is used for closing and sealing boxes. Before closing corrugated fiberboard boxes, the tape is wetted or remoistened, activated by water.
