Tear tape, also known as tearstrip or tear-off ribbon[1] is a polymer-based narrow tape that is attached to the inner surface of filmic overwrap of common non-durable fast-moving consumer goods such as soft drinks, groceries or toiletries, as well as tobacco products such as cigarettes and cigars, to aid the opening of the packaging [2]

It is also used on paperboard and light to medium weight corrugated fiberboard packaging materials such as courier envelopes and boxes. Irrespective of the medium it is used on, tear tape serves as an easy opening device for the consumer, where it prevents the need for additional opening tools such as scissors or knives, or the use of excessive force. Tear tape provides a guide on the tear area, thereby allowing for more precise opening which minimises product spillage [3]
