3.Tertiary Packaging(Outermost Layer)
Tertiary Packaging is the packaging used most often by warehouses and manufacturers to ship secondary packaging.
The primary goal of tertiary packaging is to protect shipments during transit.
Tertiary packaging is typically not seen by end users.
The packaging materials often used by Tertiary Packaging are pallets, wood crates, banding groove lumber, strapping, packing tape, stretch wrap, etc.
Here at KEEPTOP, the primary component of our tertiary packaging is plastic strapping, packing tape, and stretch wrap.
PE Stretch Film
PE stretch film is one of the most common tools for unitizing products for transport.
PE stretch film is used to secure, bundle, and stabilize products.
The PE stretch film wrapped around the product’s surface can prevent dust, oil, moisture, water, and theft.
Stretch wrap film offers high puncture resistance and excellent load-holding force to prevent heavier items from shifting during transport.
PE stretch film also provides superior cling and loads stabilization to secure uniform and irregular loads, which is impossible with traditional packaging methods.
Plastic strapping is used to bundle products together, reinforce cartons and help you to secure the package.
It protects products from movement either in storage or during shipment.
Many people use a combination of stretch film and plastic strapping to help secure loads of different sizes and weights.
Polypropylene strapping is often used to complement stretch film during load stabilization.
Polyester strapping is great for heavier loads and is commonly used in place of metal strapping.
Printed plastic strapping offers the added value of advertising your company and securing your packages while in transit.
Packing Tape – Considered a pressure-sensitive tape used in various applications, commonly used for sealing boxes and packages for shipments.
Packing tape provides excellent holding power for heavy-duty packaging and shipping.
Seal shipping and storage boxes with packing tape to hold them closed through rough handling or long-term storage.
The advantages of packaging tape are thin thickness, good cost performance, transparent appearance, non-toxic, odorless, good safety, puncture resistance, easy to use, high cushioning strength, high efficiency, good shrinkage, and good tear resistance.
