Contents

No, kraft paper tape does not need to be wet. However, there are some types of kraft paper tape that are water-activated. These tapes have an adhesive that is activated by water. When the tape is wet, the adhesive becomes sticky and bonds to the surface that it is applied to.

Water-activated kraft paper tape is a good option for sealing boxes and cartons. It is strong and durable, and it is also water-resistant. This makes it ideal for shipping items in wet or humid conditions.
