There are many modern packaging solutions on the market today – but none of them are as universal and practical as hand stretch film. It is mainly used to secure goods onto pallets, but is also suitable for quickly and securely wrapping smaller items and loose cargo.
Packaged goods wrapped with hand stretch film are well-secured, and can be efficiently and conveniently sent on their way after packaging.
Hand stretch film also offers excellent protection to valuable goods that need to be stored for long times or even outdoors: your goods are safe from dust and dirt, against falling or slipping, from moisture and unwanted access. If required, it can also be produced to offer UV protection. Opaque Dürrbeck hand stretch film helps keep prying eyes off of your product.
Hand stretch wrap is an especially elastic, tear-resistant, extremely thin yet puncture-resistant film that is mainly used to secure goods onto pallets. It is wrapped around the pallet by hand, creating a tight, compact and secure position. The tight bond that hand stretch film creates offers protection for your goods, as well as your warehouse workers who are responsible for loading and unloading cargo!
This firm hold is thanks to a property of hand stretch film – after stretching, the wrap contracts slightly to tighten around the goods like a belt. The extent of the stretch is called the stretch rate. This can be chosen by the customer, and depends on the type and weight of the goods to be packaged.
How hand stretch film is used varies according to the items that are to be packed. For example, the film must be stretched more to wrap heavy goods than for lighter goods. The film must also have a higher gauge, or thickness. Wrapping is usually done horizontally. However, if you require special protection against moisture, Dürrbeck can also supply you with the appropriate cover in the form of flat film or plastic sheets – also made in Germany.
The big advantage of hand stretch film is that due to the added polymers, the individual layers still cling to each other, even when the stretch is very high. After wrapping, the film is simply cut from the roll – done! Your goods are now securely packaged, with no further precautions necessary.
