Stretch Film: Added Protection and Reduced Cost in One Film

Joseph Coupal - Monday, June 02, 2014

Stretch film is usually used to wrap products that are placed on pallets to keep them secure and in place. Due to its versatility, stretch film comes in a variety of specialty films, varying in dimensions and uses. It provides a means of protection and cost reduction.

Added protection

Stretch film plays a vital role in storage and security. Palletized boxes are probably the most common use of stretch film. It palletizes and wraps boxes of different sizes, making them into one unit load, a process known as unitizing. This also reduces pilferage and theft. Also, unit loads wrapped with stretch film are easier to move and track than individually packaged products, thereby reducing damage that commonly occur at warehouses and other storage areas. Stretch film obviously provides added protection to all the products it covers and wraps.

Reduced cost

Unitizing smaller individual packages can not only provide protection, but it can also provide proper handling and delivery. This way, stretch film aids in reducing the time it takes to move the packaged goods from one place to another, reducing labor cost and adding more control of inventory. Stretch film is also considered the most affordable packaging and bundling material while still able to offer superior load holding capacity. Plus, it is also recyclable, reducing waste disposal cost and helping the environment.

Many manufacturers and movers prefer using stretch film nowadays. Many products are commonly wrapped using stretch film for storage or for transportation, either with a handheld stretch film or a machine wrap stretch film.
