How To Use Water Activated  Tape?

The development of e-commerce over the years has brought with it the need for packaging materials that protect products during the processing, packaging, and transportation of the products.

Safety regulations call for products to be handled carefully and sealed well to avoid anyone interfering with them.

This has created a demand for adhesive tapes, which are known to be more secure.

This heavy demand has boosted the water-activated tape market as more and more businesses are turning to water-activated tapes.

Water-activated paper tape can therefore be used in many ways.

Generally, it is used to seal cartons for shipping and transportation, but it can also be used to seal packages during processing and the packaging process.

Water-Activated Tape Vs Pressure Sensitive Tape

Many people often do not pay attention to the different types of tape when it comes to packaging so long as it gets the job done.

However, it is crucial for people to recognize the different types of tapes, as the right tape can make a very big difference.

The most commonly used tapes are pressure-sensitive tapes and water-activated tapes.

These tapes are quite different in their application and their effect on the package.

Let us have a look at the differences between the pressure-sensitive tape and water-activated tapes;


Water-activated tapes help to improve packer productivity, while pressure-sensitive tapes take much longer for packers to seal boxes.

This is because, with water-activated tapes, only one strip is enough to seal a carton, while pressure-sensitive tapes require two to three tapes to seal a package.

Productivity is 21% higher with water-activated tapes.


Using water-activated tapes on packages make them more secure than using pressure-sensitive says.

With the latter, you can easily push down on it and gain access to the package leaving no evidence of tampering.

On the other hand, water-activated tapes are challenging to pass through, and if you try, the tape and the box will tear, showing evidence of tampering.


Pressure-sensitive tapes are relatively cheaper compared to water-activated tapes on a per-foot basis.

However, if you look at it in terms of general usage, WAT is actually more cost-effective.

PST uses more cotton sealing material compared to WAT. With WAT, only one strip is enough, but PST requires several strips to achieve the firm and stronghold.

Climatic conditions

Water-activated tapes perform better when it comes to integrity testing on how the tapes hold up in different climatic conditions.

WAT will keep its hold in humid, cold, hot and even dusty environments.

On the other hand, PST loses its seal with varying climatic conditions. It also attracts dirt under its seal, compromising its hold on the package.


Branding is an important aspect of all business, whether it is an upcoming business or an already established business.

Water-activated tapes give you the opportunity to brand your packages without the extra cost of having to brand the packages themselves.

You can easily print your message or logo on the gummed tape and use it o seal all your packages.

On the other hand, branding with pressure-sensitive tapes is quite difficult and expensive.

Given the fact that you also have to use more than one strip, your message may be obscured by another tape.


Perhaps the main difference is in their application.

Water-activated tape application requires water to activate the adhesive in the tape so it can firmly bond with a surface.

Pressure-sensitive tapes are applied with a bit of pressure and do not need any solvent for activation.

Water-activated tapes stay dry and non-sticky before applying water.

WAT also delivers a stronger bond to different surfaces compared to PST.

The bond between a WAT and a surface is so strong that one of the two or both will tear if you try to open it.

With PST, however, you can access a package without causing any damage to the box or tape.


Water-activated tapes are most ideal when it comes to sealing packages for shipment or transportation.

Some of the benefits of using them compared to other tapes include being more secure, tamper-evident, improving packer productivity, Good for branding, and being more cost-effective.

It also maintains its stronghold on cartons in different climatic conditions and this makes it better than most tapes.

Water-activated Tapes are also eco-friendlier as they are made from raw materials that are compostable, biodegradable, and do not pollute the air.

For businesses looking to minimize their plastic use, the water-activated tape is the best option.
