Carton sealing tapes are available in two main types, pressure sensitive and
water activated. Pressure sensitive tapes are the most common and least
expensive. They can be applied by hand, with a dispenser, right off the
roll, or with powered equipment. Water activated, also called paper or gum
tape, requires at least a basic dispenser to apply the water to the tape as
it exits the machine. Both styles are available in 2" or 3" widths and
varying thicknesses. We carry the full line of Better Packages tape and
equipment as well as Little David and Shurtape brands.
