Gummed paper tape has seen a recent rise in popularity as many companies looking to reduce their environmental footprint have also recognised the additional benefits that gummed paper tape has to offer.
Bonds with added strength
When wet, the adhesives in gummed paper tape penetrate into the fibre of the carton and form an integral bond. The tape becomes part of the carton, adding strength to the structure and blending with the character of the cardboard to provide a superior level of presentation compared with plastic tape.
Unlike standard plastic packaging tapes, gummed paper tape cannot be removed from a carton without leaving signs of damage, improving the security of the contents and providing evidence that a package seal has been tampered with.
Gummed paper tape is the environmentally friendly choice. Made from renewable natural resources, it is completely bio-degradable and fully recyclable.
Performs in all temperatures
The seal achieved with gummed paper tape maintains its integrity even in the most extreme temperatures and humid conditions. The ideal solution for long-term storage, it is also extremely resistant to ageing.
Did you know that gummed paper tape is cheaper per linear metre than most normal packaging tapes? You can also save money by using less: in most instances, only one strip of gummed paper tape is needed to do the job of several strips of cheap plastic tape. Our dispensers make it even more cost effective, as they accurately measure tape lengths to avoid wastage.
Up productivity, reduce fatigue
Using gummed paper tape with our Cyklop dispensers can result in increased productivity and reduced operator fatigue, compared with using plastic tape and manual dispensers. Hand held plastic tape dispensers can easily be dropped, often resulting in tape damage causing the item to be discarded. Gummed paper tape dispensers protect the tape from this, and the increased roll lengths of GPT reduce the downtime when changing tape rolls.
