A Powerful Tape Dispenser...

Built to Last

Simplicity & Efficiency in a Durable Design

Safe and Strong. Continuing the Tradition of Excellence. Over the years we have heard gummed tape dispensers call tape wetters, tape lickers, and gummed tape machines. Water activated tape is stronger, faster, and easier to use than any other method to close a box, carton, mailer, or manila envelopes.
