Environmental Sustainability: PE stretch film is a recyclable packaging material contributing to the preservation of the environment. It is recyclable and can be processed into new film or other plastic products, reducing resource consumption and environmental impact.
Unitization: One of the significant characteristics of stretch wrap is its ability to tightly and securely bind products, making scattered items into a cohesive unit.
This prevents any loosening or separation, even in adverse conditions, without sharp edges or stickiness that could cause damage.
Cost-Effectiveness: PE stretch film is relatively inexpensive, particularly compared to other packaging materials.
It offers superior stretchability and packaging performance, reducing the quantity of film required and packaging costs.
Stretch wrap requires approximately 15% less packaging than the original carton packaging, 35% less packaging than heat shrink film, and 50% less packaging than cardboard packaging.
It decreases labour intensity, boosts packaging efficiency, and improves wrapping quality.
Wide Adaptability: Stretch film rolls are suitable for wrapping items of varying shapes, sizes, and weights. It can adapt the stretch force and packaging techniques to satisfy the requirements of various industries and applications.
High Transparency and Visibility: The superb transparency of plastic stretch film increases the product’s visibility.
This is essential for inspecting the integrity of packaging, identifying products, and enhancing the efficiency of warehouse operations.
Ease of Use: Plastic stretch films can be applied manually or with machine, making wrapping operations convenient and practical.
Hand stretch film is suitable for small-scale packaging, whereas machine stretch film is suitable for large-scale packaging production lines with high efficacy.
Physically Stable Properties: The physical properties of stretch wrap rolls are physically stable, allowing it to maintain its packaging performance under varying temperature and humidity conditions.
It has excellent abrasion, tear, and chemical corrosion resistance, protecting products from environmental degradation.
Safety and Protection: Stretch wrap rolls provide safety and protection against dust, moisture, sunlight, and other external factors.
It may also include larceny prevention and anti-counterfeiting features, ensuring product safety.
Importantly, stretch film wrapping equitably distributes forces, preventing damage that conventional packaging methods such as strapping, tape, or adhesive cannot achieve.
The optimal method is a combination of these packaging techniques.
These benefits make polyethylene stretch film indispensable in today’s logistics and packaging industries.
It is essential for product protection, minimizing losses, enhancing transportation efficiency, and reducing costs.
