Consumer packaging example

Tear Tapes

Essentra Tear Tapes not only provide functional advantages such as easy opening and resealability, they can also carry value-added features – such as branding and other messaging or brand protection technology. As a result, they help to ensure that consumers do not get frustrated by opening packs, and receive products that have been protected in transit, have not been tampered with and can be confirmed as genuine.
