Stretch film is irreplaceable in many situations. It is used wherever there is a need to pack parcels, boxes or packages of various sizes and weights. If you want to get a professional stretch film, then it is worth paying attention to the most important parameters of these products. This will help us find a film that is adequate to our needs and avoid an unsuccessful purchase.
Stretch film – an indispensable aid in packing goods
Stretch film is a type of a thin layer of transparent synthetic material, which we use to wrap various types of objects in order to protect them during transport. Folia stretch It works great both in securing individual objects as well as entire pallets loaded with various packages and items. Then, the best solution is to wrap the entire load tightly with foil, thus attaching it to the wooden base.
Therefore, stretch film is used wherever there is a need to prepare goods for transport. This includes DIY stores, large-area stores, market halls, as well as warehouses of various profiles – food, commercial, textile, paint and many others.
Stretch film – efficient, durable, resistant – what is it?
If you care about choosing high-quality films, then it is worth paying attention to a few of the most important features of the available films. First of all – let’s check the weight of the product we are interested in and make sure whether it is gross or net weight. In the first case, the weight includes the tube on which the foil is wound. Depending on the size of the foil, it can weigh from 200 to 500 g.
The thickness of the foil is another important point. The foil’s resistance to stretching and other physical influences will depend on this parameter. The most common thicknesses are 17, 20 and 23 µm. The thicker the foil is – the more durable it will be. The thinnest films are intended primarily for wrapping cardboard boxes filled with light objects or loose goods.
How to properly use stretch film?
Contrary to appearances, not everyone knows how to properly pack using stretch film. The best solution, however, is quite simple. First of all – place the items or cartons prepared by us in the center of the free space. It could simply be the floor in a warehouse or in a shop floor. It is also worth using wooden or plastic pallets, which will be the basis for the shipment prepared by us.
Then, take the foil tube with both hands and, while walking around the pallet, wind the next foil layers on it. It’s best if we cover the entire palette several times (or even more). The individual strips of the foil should overlap. Wrapping should, of course, start from the base and slowly reach the top of the package we are preparing.
Finally, it is worth making sure that all wrapped goods are stable. It is best to check this during transport with a pallet jack or a forklift. If the package will not shake or tilt while it is being moved, the package is stable.
