Pre-stretch film is a thin, elastic material that is used to wrap pallets or pack various products. It is a type of stretch film that is produced with a preset stretch ratio. This means that the film is stretched before it is applied to the pallet or product, resulting in reduced wrapping effort.
How does pre-stretch film work?
The pre-stretch film comes in rolls, which are then placed on the pallet wrap. A pallet wrapper is a device used to wrap foil around a pallet or product. When using pre-stretch film, it is fed through the wrapping device and stretched to the desired stretch ratio before being applied to the pallet.
Advantages of pre-stretch film:
- Since pre-stretch film is stretched before application, less film is used for each wrap, resulting in lower packaging costs. In addition, a smaller amount of foil means less waste, which is environmentally friendly.
Improved product safety:
- Pre-stretch film provides strong and solid protection to products during transport and storage. Its elasticity allows the foil to adhere firmly to the products, preventing them from moving and damaging.
- Due to the reduction of the effort required for wrapping, pre-stretch film enables faster and more efficient packaging. This can result in increased productivity and reduced packaging time in an industrial environment.
- Pre-stretch film is easily applied to pallets or products, without the need for special tools.
