tesa has launched a packaging tape that protects both the handler and contents. The company’s latest packaging tape, tesa® 4190, is designed to facilitate knifeless opening of boxes and cartons, eliminating the risk of cutting into valuable goods and damaging the inner packaging.

It can be removed in one swift motion by using the fingerlift which is identified by its red colour .tesa® 4190 is available in transparent, printed and different dimensions and is suitable for manual and automatic application.
