Environmentally-friendly cardboard packaging
All the Viskom gummed tapes are made from tear-resistant Kraft paper and water-activated gummed wet tape. For this reason, they are also known internationally as water-activated tape (WAT) or gummed paper tape. The paper is manufactured from wood which originates from sustainably managed forests in the EU. The water-activated glue that we use on our packaging tapes is a natural product which consists of a coating based on potato starch, the adhesive effect of which is achieved with a simple and sparing application of water. In the case of our reinforced tapes for cardboard packaging, multiple filament reinforcements or fibre reinforcements are either overlaid on the packaging tapes in the form or a variety of layer configurations or integrated in the gummed tapes.
Tamper-proof closing of packaging and cartons
With our packaging tape for cartons, packages and packets made from corrugated cardboard or solid cardboard obtain a secure and air-tight closure which makes tampering to the packaging immediately identifiable. This is because after it is activated with water, the adhesive coating on the tear-resistant tapes creates an inseparable material composite with the cardboard packaging. Cardboard packaging which has been closed with gummed tape from Viskom cannot be open or closed again without destroying the surface of the packaging. Our packaging tapes therefore make a valuable contribution to product protection and transport safety.
Manual or automatic application of gummed tapes
All of the gummed tapes from Schümann are supplied on ready-to-use rolls that are available in a variety of lengths. The packaging tapes can be applied manually, semi-automatically or with the use of fully automatic closing equipment and packaging lines. The additional strengths of our packaging tapes include their temperature resistance – the tapes are resistant to heat and the cold – as well as their stabilising effect on packaging and cartons made from corrugated and solid cardboard.

Why gummed paper tapes?
Seal naturally and securely with water-activated gummed kraft paper tape
In times of globalization, worldwide shipment of goods is growing steadily. This is why it is becoming more and more important to protect packages from theft, from mechanical and climate hazards, and for them to be sealed in a sophisticated manner.
The perfect solution for this lies in sealing using wet adhesive tape. Strips activated when in contact with water cannot be opened without being damaged. The package is “sealed”.
In order to continue to fulfil different requirements, there are many different types of these strips. Starting with adhesive strips made from Kraft paper, wet adhesive strips made from fibre-reinforced multi-layer paper compounds are the strongest form of seal. So as to achieve better counterfeit protection and/or for advertising and marketing purposes, the wet adhesive tape can be printed in up to 4 different colours and with freely selected logos.
Climate hazards such as extreme cooling, extreme heat or high atmospheric humidity not affect the sealing tape. Even a dust-proof seal can be provided, the type of tape made for the food industry and medical technology industry. Packages sealed in this way can be fed to the recycling process without another thought. Separation of residual film, amongst other things, is not necessary.
Whether it is online retail, food logistics or the supplier industry: the gummed tapes from market leader Viskom are the ideal packaging tape for cardboard packaging in every category of weight. They are suitable for manual and fully automated use, and provide a dust-tight closure on cardboard packaging with safety against tampering and unauthorised opening and an exemplary eco-balance.
