Details
  • Fiberglass reinforced, medium duty water activated tape to simplify packing operations
  • Moistened adhesive interacts with porous surfaces to form a powerful, secure bond
  • Tape forms a tamper-evident seal
  • Paper construction is easy to handle, making it ideal for hand applications
  • Boxes are sealed securely, yet easy to open without cutting tools

Simplify your packing operations with a proven solution. 3M™ Water Activated Paper Tape 6146 is an easy, economical solution to a range of basic carton sealing challenges. We designed this medium duty, water-activated, fiberglass reinforced "gummed" adhesive tape to provide a strong seal to a wide variety of corrugated surfaces.

When Being Tacky is Good
3M™ Water Activated Paper Tape 6146, with our high-tack, water activated adhesive, ensures your corrugated boxes stay sealed until ready for opening. In tandem with the fiberglass reinforced, medium duty, 30-lb. kraft paper, our high-tack water activated adhesive system holds the tape in place throughout shipping, handling and storage. This tape is available in natural kraft color.

We recommend 3M™ Water Activated Paper Tape 6146 for sealing corrugated boxes weighing up to 35 pounds. When water-activated, this tape easily and quickly conforms over carton edges and corners to form secure C-clip and L-clip seals. Our water-activated, or "gummed," tape is very effective for sealing corrugated cartons, as the adhesive will bond with the fiberboard material to create a strong durable seal and endure the toughest handling and shipping scenarios.

Our tape works well on recycled cartons and non-unitized loads. Its fiberglass reinforced 30 lb. paper construction assures reliable performance across a range of environments and applications. Our economical packaging tape meets the needs of numerous industries and general industrial applications such as food, beverage, medical pharmaceutical, paper, print, electronics, shipping and distribution centers.

Recommended Application

  • Sealing medium weight corrugated boxes, recycled cartons and non-unitized loads up to 35 pounds

Easy Dispensing for Greater Productivity
3M also offers semi-automatic application equipment to increase efficiencies and help speed up your packaging and carton sealing processes. Application is most easily accomplished at room temperature and once applied, the tape performs well throughout the normal temperature ranges typically encountered by packaged products in shipping and storage environments.

A Better Way to Seal Corrugated
3M™ Water Activated Dispensers and Water Activated Tapes are an easy, economical solution to a wide variety of carton sealing challenges. To create a strong, lasting seal, the moistened adhesive interacts with porous surfaces to form a powerful, secure bond. This tape-bond forms a tamper-evident seal that shreds if an attempt is made to pull it off before delivery. Normally constructed from paper, our taping system is easy to operate, apply and handle, making it ideal for hand applications. Boxes are securely sealed yet easy to open without cutting tools.
