Water activated tape

01 July 2024

ANTALIS PACKAGING has added the industry’s largest capacity water activated tape (WAT) dispenser to its portfolio.

The Optimax OM700, with a tape roll capacity of up to 255mm diameter and up to 50mm wide, and output of 60 metres per minute, is suited for high volume, fast-paced shipping environments.

The OM700’s large tape roll capacity and two-litre water bottle eliminate the need for frequent roll changes and water bottle refills. With a multi operation mode, the OM700 allows the operator to programme up to 6 different tape lengths in a sequence, which are dispensed automatically.

WAT is growing in popularity. Made from Kraft paper with a starch-based adhesive, WAT is 100% recyclable and proven to be faster than conventional taping when used in conjunction with a dispenser such as the OM700, increasing packer productivity by up to 20%.

Antalis packaging product manager Amy Skingsley, says: “We’ve seen a tremendous increase in demand for water activated tape over the last couple of years and there’s no surprise as to why: it’s easy to use, highly effective, looks great, and is fully recyclable. What more could you ask for from a tape? The Optimax OM700 with its large capacity is a great piece of kit that enables high volume packaging operations to take full advantage of all that WAT has to offer.”
