Water-activated reinforced tapes offer superior performance for sealing, tabbing, identification core starting, packaging paper, security control and many other uses. Most pressure-sensitive tapes take time to develop a "destructive" bond when applied to a porous substrate surface. Water-activated reinforced tapes bond instantly to both virgin and recycled fiber (corrugated carton, paper, etc.) surfaces and therefore, generate an immediate destructive bond resulting in a tamper evident package. Different situations call for different carton sealing systems. Water-activated reinforced tapes are specifically designed for each individual application. These tapes are unaffected by heat or cold. Water-activated reinforced tapes are recyclable.
