Stretch film, also known as stretch wrap or pallet wrap, is a highly stretchable plastic film that is used to wrap around items to secure and protect them. It is widely used in the packaging industry for securing loads, bundling items together and stabilizing goods on pallets, protecting the goods from dust, moisture, and damage during transit.
Stretch film is typically made from linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE). It can be stretch easily, allowing it to tightly conform to the shape of the items being wrapped. This elasticity creates a strong, secure bond around the items, providing stability and preventing them from shifting during transportation.
There are various types of stretch films available, including hand stretch film and machine stretch film. Hand stretch film is typically applied manually by hand, whereas machine stretch film is used with automated stretch wrapping machines for higher volume and efficiency.
Overall, stretch film is a versatile and cost-effective packaging solution widely used in logistics, shipping, and storage applications to ensure the integrity and safety of products during transportation and storage.
