In theory . . . maybe. When the box is closed, any ambient moisture in the
air, and in the tape would be trapped inside. Although dessicant (moisture
absorbing crystals) in the box might absorb and lock-up any such moisture. But I
don't know any of the tape manufacturers really claim there "archival storage
containers" to really seal out moisture.
