Water Activated Tape

1)Water-activated tape (WAT), also known as gummed tape, is a form of paper tape with a water-based adhesive that is reactivated by water. Water-activated tape can be found in plain Kraft paper for light cartons or with several layers of paper and reinforcement for heavy parcels. When the water-activated adhesive is applied to a carton, a capillary action bonds the tape to the carton. This permanent bond is tamper-resistant and tamper-evident. WAT is not affected by dirt, dust oil or extreme temperature environments.

Water-activated reinforced kraft paper tape is a green environmental protection product, is the national and provincial new products, and its base material and adhesive will not cause pollution to the environment and can recycling use with the packaging. It is mainly used to replace pressure sensitive adhesive tape, etc. Used for carton sealing.

Rudder Tape–water activated tapes have been approved by the US, Australia, British markets and so on, we have a confidence on our quality, we believe our tape can catch your demand.

Filament Tapes–Rudder Tape

1) Filament tapes are constructed of polypropylene film or polyester film that is glass-reinforced and that has an aggressive synthetic rubber, hot melt rubber or acrylic based adhesive system. These tapes have high tensile strength that can be enhanced with additional glass fibers. Consequently, there are low, medium, and high-grade products. These tapes are used in packaging and for bundling where strong tensile required, and involved in industries like homeappliance, electrical, construction, transformer, packaging, steeling coil, etc.

Rudder Tape–Filament tapes have been penetrated into the US, Australia, South Asian countries, Canada, British markets and so on, we have a confidence on our quality,  and offer a varity of grade for your to select.

Bopp or Pet backing film?

PP (Polypropylene/bopp) film: Good abrasion, moisture and scuff resistance; excellent conformability.

PET (Polyester) film: Tough, strong backing; handles and dispenses easily.

How to select adhesive fits your application? –Rudder Tape

  • Synthetic Rubber: Versatile, good adhesion to many surfaces, higher stability and temperature range.
  • Modified Synthetic Rubber: Versatile, good adhesion to many surfaces, higher stability and temperature range, clean removal.
  • Hot Melt Adhesive: Utility, good adhesion to many surfaces, general stability and temperature range.

1)None / Non-adhesive

Non-adhesive tapes, films or laminates do not have an applied adhesive, but may be self-adhering. PTFE thread-sealing tape is a type of non-adhesive tape.

2) Acrylic adhesive

Acrylic adhesives provide excellent environmental resistance and faster setting times than other resin systems.

3)Pressure Sensitive (PSA)

Pressure sensitive adhesives (PSAs) or contact adhesives are aggressively and permanently tacky at room temperature in dry (solvent free) form. They adhere firmly to a variety of dissimilar surfaces upon contact, requiring only the application of finger or hand pressure. PSAs do not require water, solvent, or heat activation in order to exert a strong adhesive force on materials such as paper, plastic, glass, wood, cement, and metal. PSAs have a sufficiently cohesive holding and elastic nature so that despite their aggressive tackiness, they can be manipulated by hand and removed from smooth surfaces without leaving a residue. In terms of general trade usage, leading tape manufacturers do not sanction the extension of the term “pressure sensitive” to include tapes and adhesives just because they are sticky (e.g., fly-paper) or just because they adhere or cohere.

How to used Gummed Paper Tape?

Gummed Paper Tape also known as Water activated Tape

1) Non-reinfored gummed paper tape.

Backing with kraft paper, vegatable gule , wactivated by water, with No fiberglass reinforced, fits for light duty cartons sealing.

2) Reinforced Gummed paper tape.

Backing with kraft paper, reinforced by fiberglass and activated by water, fits for heavier cartons sealing.

Rudder Tape–Gummed paper tape is 100% recylced, degradable, eco-friendly, equivalent to brands like Intertape, Holland, then hwo to use it? Let’s watch the video at youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVhOWYymMNY

In addition, we also offer printing service, you could be able to own your personal logo on the tape which is very good for advertising in market.
