PTI distributes Water Activated Tape (WAT) Dispensers from both Better Packages Inc. and Interpack. Having a water activated tape dispenser (aka Gummed Tape Dispensers) and Water Activated Paper Packing Tape will help you much more than regular plastic tape because it simply has more to offer. Water activated tape can improve carton strength, packaging security and decreases material waste. The water activated tape dispenser itself decreases risk of repetitive motion injury, material waste and returns. It also increases productivity and efficiency by simplifying the carton sealing process.
Both the manual and electric water activated dispensers have a simplified operating process. Water is emptied from a water bottle as needed to wet the brushes. Some models have a heater on top of the brushes also, to keep the water at the right temperature for the tape. As the tape is dispensed, it is fed across the top of the moistened brushed, proven to be the most efficient way to activate the glue.
Manual Water Activated Tape Dispensers:
These dispensers are easily adjusted for different length tapes. The dial clearly labels a variety of lengths in inches and all you have to do is move the stopper to the length you prefer, pull the top lever and watch the tape dispense!
The electronic dispensers use the same principle but it is even simple with one finger operation. There is a button for every tape length and all you have to do is press the button you would like and it will dispense the tape!
