3M™ Water Activated Tapes

Simplify your packing operations with a proven solution. 3M™ Water Activated Tapes are an easy, economical answer to a wide variety of basic carton sealing challenges.

  • Moistened adhesive interacts with porous surfaces to form a powerful, secure bond
  • Tape forms a tamper-evident seal that shreds if an attempt is made to pull it off before delivery
  • Paper construction is easy to handle, making it ideal for hand applications
  • Boxes are sealed secure, yet easy to open without cutting tools
  • Coreless rolls reduce waste and simplify roll changes

3M™ Water Activated Tapes are available in both white and kraft and a variety of widths.

  …easy dispensing.
