Stretch film, or pallet wrap, is an LLDPE plastic film with high elastic recovery used to wrap and unitize pallets for load stability and protection. It can also be used to bundle smaller items tightly together. Unlike shrink film, stretch film does not require heat in order to fit tightly around an object. Instead, stretch film simply needs to be wrapped around the object either by hand or with a stretch wrap machine.
Whether you are using stretch film to secure loads or pallets for storage and/or shipment, to color code, or to allow items like produce and firewood to “breathe,” using the best stretch film product for your application can help you get your product to the destination intact.
