Almost all businesses use stretch film. Hence, this shows the stretch film versatility. Its use is standardised to immobilise the goods on the pallets and protect them from dust and moisture. There is a wide assortment of this material in different formats, thicknesses and colours. Today we will explain it’s key features and most common uses.
Firstly, a stretchable film is composed of one or several thin layers of film made of polyethylene plastic which, thanks to its excellent elasticity, has many uses in business.
Secondly, it comes supplied in rolls of different widths, colours and thicknesses of the film, and depending on the type of roll, its use changes.
Stretch film versatility for wrapping pallets
As already mentioned, the stretch film is widely used to fix, compact and protect products. Hence, product protection is guaranteed once wrapped right. Goods protected in storage or transport from dust or moisture.
To start, we have to divide this film into two different types. In general terms, for each of them, there are variants. We can divide it between manually stretched film or mechanically film. As the names indicate, the manual is to be applied manually by a warehouse operator, while the machine film is for use in palletising machines.
Next, both types come in rolls. They can be transparent, black, coloured or even with personalised printing with the company logo for example. To facilitate its use, the most important difference between manual and automatic is the number of meters of each roll.
