The last thing you want to have is an unsalvageable relationship with a customer due to shipment failure. Before deciding which tape to use for securing your containers, there are multiple factors you must consider. For example, enhanced product protection means less damage. As the name implies, water-activated tape or GUM tape is a starch-based substance that becomes “gummed” after it makes contact with water.
Water-activated tape is ideal if you’re in need of a tamper-proof seal to protect your storage containers or boxes. In fact, shipment companies that take preventive measures by using supplies like water-activated tape are less likely to experience shipment mishaps.
Hughes’s GUM tape has a reputation built on reducing costs associated with product replacement. Say goodbye to broken product pieces and lost parts. When compared to standard tape, water-activated tape was deemed the strongest and most reliable for making storage containers more secure. It has proven to be durable in most environment types, including:
Hughes’s water-activated tape is easy to apply. One benefit of using this type of tape is that it forms a hard-to-break seal with the container immediately after it has been applied. It is unlike standard tape, which is pressure-sensitive and takes time to form a secure bond after being applied to a parcel.
Water-activated tape is specifically engineered to save you time and money. Its fast, hard-to-break adhesion ensures your packaging will remain intact. The flexibility that comes with water-activated tape is a sure way for you to seal containers and irregular surfaces of shapes and sizes.
