Hey! You look like somebody who might be interested in paper tape. Just a vibe.

Why use paper tape over Ecotape? Because it's the best for sealing boxes. And If you prefer the au naturale look, then this tape is right up your aesthetic alley. One strip of water-activated tape can hold up to 15 kilos, meaning you can save on tape and spend your money on more exciting things, like contents insurance.

Unlike usual plastic tape, your marker won't slide off or dry up in sad little inky puddles. You can write or stamp anything you like along this tape, like "Thanks for giving me money", and "Are you single?" And like all delicious things, the natural starch adhesive on this tape is made from potatoes.

The best part, of course, is that this tape is entirely recyclable, and there's no need to remove it from the cardboard box after use.

In the words of the hit documentary H2O, to activate this tape, just add water! Once on, it creates a deep tamper-evident seal, frightening off any sticky fingers. Pair it with the best dispenser for water activated tape we've found, and you can wet and stick to your heart's content.

      Works better than expected!

      I wasn't sure how I'd feel about using WAT for the first time. There's definitely a little bit of an adjustment coming from regular pressure-activated tape in that you're dealing with something wet and sticky, but the adhesive, which I understand to be starch-based, rinses off easily with plain water. Once set, the tape holds tight, and I'd say the bond to cardboard is actually superior to what I've experienced with pressure-activated tapes.

      Between this and the hex-wrap, I'm very happy to know that all of my packaging is easily recyclable and compostable! It's peace of mind.

      Professional and functional

      This is the first time I've used water-activated tape and it's FANTASTIC! Gives a really professional finish to your shipping boxes and you can use a stamp to add branding too!

    Tape FAQs

    Water-activated tape is paper tape made from recycled materials, with a natural starch adhesive made from potatoes (yum). It only becomes sticky once you slide a tongue or sponge over the adhesive, hence the water-activated part.

    Yeah, baby! You can leave it on the boxes when you're done.

    Water-activated tape is dry in 1, 2, 3... done.

    It's super strong, and it's the best tape for packaging boxes. One strip can hold up to 15kgs - a regular Hercules.

    Our water-activated tape is industrial compostable and fully recyclable.

    This is WAT's absolute best quality. Write anything you like on the tape, such as "Thanks HeapsGood, you're all really sexy legends."
