Intertape Polymer Group Inc., a leading manufacturer in tapes and films, announced the launch of the Curby Mini-Taper, a sleek and durable manual water-activated tape (WAT) dispenser designed to fill a market gap for the small or new e-commerce retailer who needs all the benefits of WAT to ship packages globally. The company has committed to offering customers sustainable packaging products that can be recycled curbside.

“The Curby Mini-Taper is a revolutionary new product which will allow small e-commerce businesses to package like the pros,” stated James Apap Bologna, VP of Marketing. “This product launch represents a continued execution of IPG’s long term strategic plan in support of the e-commerce business.”

“It is easy to load and operate, portable, and has a small footprint. This is perfect for fitting on small workstations or desktops,” explained Joy Scott, Systems Product Manager. “The Curby Mini-Taper is economically priced so that every business can afford the luxury of dispensing WAT, ensuring that their valued products get delivered safely to its destination. Now all our customers can apply WAT to their boxes to get the most secure seal available, just like the larger retailers.”
