FLEXDura HE® Water-Resistant Tag & Label Paper

Get the benefits of synthetic and cellulose-based papers in one water-resistant paper.


FLEXDura HE® is an amazing, high wet strength, uncoated paper that is made from 100% cellulose wood pulp and is fully repulpable. Unlike other wet strength papers, it holds up in harsh environments that are excessively wet, humid or contain chemicals for months without discoloring, bleeding or losing significant strength.

In many cases, FLEXDura HE® replaces synthetic papers, films and flash-spun, high-density substrates. When you want a biodegradable paper that can be used outdoors but still prints like paper—without the use of special inks, toners or processes—choose FLEXDura HE®. Like any other paper, it can be embossed, die-cut, glued and perforated easily while still maintaining exceptional dry and wet tensile characteristics.

Why FLEXDura HE®?

Water Resistant icon

FLEXDura HE™ truly is the most water-resistant paper available anywhere. Why use synthetic papers, polyethylene coated paper (poly coated paper), silicone coated paper or high strength film for your tags when there is a water-resistant paper available in multiple colors and small minimum order quantities?

How long will it last as an outdoor paper before breaking down? Well, that depends on the environmental conditions. However, many months to two years are not uncommon. It lasts for months without discoloring, bleeding or losing significant strength.

Available in eight (8) different colors and can be shipped in sheets and almost any roll size or quantity that you desire.

Uses of Water-Resistant Tag & Label Paper


Stocked in 8 colors and 3 calipers, FLEXDura HE® can be shipped in sheets and almost any roll size or quantity that you desire. It can be printed flexographically, offset or digitally, making it perfect for all your paper tag applications:

Laundry Tags/Dry Cleaning Tags

FLEXDura HE® is water- and chemical-resistant, so it will go through washing and dry cleaning processes multiple times while remaining colorfast and strong. It truly does make the perfect garment tag, clothes tag or laundry tag (including continuous laundry tags).

Lockout/Tagout and Fire Extinguisher Tags

Is your industrial application wet or humid? Are you concerned about your safety tags being damaged by chemicals? FLEXDura HE® is a chemically-resistant and water-resistant tag and label paper.

Shellfish Tags/Seafood Tags/Fish Tags

No one wants their tags to wash up on the beach or pollute our waterways, but tags do get lost! While synthetic materials such as plastic will remain for decades or centuries before the sun can degrade them, FLEXDura HE® is biodegradable.

Tree Tags/Logging Tags/Repulpable Tags/Nursery Tags

FLEXDura HE® is a cellulose-based paper that is strong enough to staple, is repulpable and can stand up to the harshest environments for log bundles. Additionally, it has been used in kilns during the drying process at temperatures in the 180° to 350° F range for up to 3 days.

Harsh Environment Tags

Harsh environments exposed to humidity, water, heat and/or chemicals, such as the chemical processing industry or pulp and paper industry, are perfect for FLEXDura HE®. And since this paper is fully repulpable, it makes the perfect natural alternative to synthetics.
