Stretch Film

sf_1sf_2Stretch wrap or stretch film is a highly stretchable plastic film that is wrapped around items, usually cartons on a pallet, to keep them secure in transit or protect during storage. The elastic recovery keeps the items tightly bound. The most common stretch wrap material is linear low density polyethylene or LLDPE but other types of polyethylene and PVC can also be used. Stretch film is available in many gauges and widths depending on the application and can be applied by hand or with equipment, ranging from basic semi automatic wrappers to fully automatic systems that require no operator intervention.
