Water Activated Tape systems provide the ultimate tamper evident, integrated tape sealing security solution.
Being environmentally friendly and high security makes it an ideal option for export shipments. Especially used to prevent in-transit tampering and theft. These tapes are manufactured to the highes standards, offering optimum sealing performance.
Some of the advantages are:
1- An integral Closure
The adhesives in this tape penetrate into the fibres of the
carton, creating a total bond. As the tape becomes an integral part of the carton
this adds considerable strength to the closure as opposed to the purely top-surface
bond of standard packaging tape adhesive. Plastic tape does not provide the same
level of security.
2- Tamper Evidence
This tape cannot be removed from the carton without leaving traces of damage, unlike standard packaging tapes which can be removed with no visible trace. Hence Eastpac Water Activated Tape offers clearly visible proof of a package’s seal being tampered with. Specialist tamperevident reinforced tape is also available for increased security protection.
3- 100% Recyclability
The tape is made from renewable natural resources which
makes recycling easier. Packaging research associations have all given Eastpac
Water Activated Tape recyclability accreditation, making it the environmentally friendly choice for the packaging professional.
4- Temperature Tolerant
Even with extreme variations of temperature and humidity, water
activated tape’s seal retains its strength and remains highly resistant to ageing,
making it the ideal solution for long term storage.
5- Improved Packaging Presentation
Water Activated Tape also out- performs plastic tape on presentation,
adhering flat against the carton and blending with the character of the cardboard, in
contrast with the shiny, rippled seal often seen with plastic tape. Eastpac Water
Activated Tape also shows the customer that you care for the environment.
6- Cost Savings
It is a cost effective way of carton sealing and can be cheaper per linear metre than any reasonable grade packaging tape. Only one strip of Eastpac water activated tape is generally required where several strips of cheap plastic tape would be otherwise needed.
7- Increased Productivity and Reduced Operator Fatigue
When applying water activated tape with our professional range of taping machines, we have proven test records of increased productivity and a reduction in operator fatigue compared with the results of using a combination of plastic tape and standard tape guns.
