Benefits of using Stretch films
Stretch films made from LLDPE, an elastic-plastic wrap material that commonly used to protect products during the packaging process for transportation and shipping. It sticks tightly to itself when applied to stretched around products improving inventory control.
Stretch films can help to keep palletized goods secured together, and if used correctly, it can reduce dust, dirt and moisture exposure in packaging. The elasticity of the plastic keeps products tightly bounded, minimizing shipping damages.
Types of Strech films
Stech films come in different grade thickness, weight and widths. Choosing the type from the diverse range of stretch films would depend on its required application.

Machine stretch film
Machine Stretch films are used together with a stretch wrap machine and commonly used in factories that require high volumes of packaging. Using machine stretch films increases productivity and cost savings on material usage. The speed of the machine and the level of stretchability of the stretch wrap machine would be one of the main factors on the thickness required.
Hand stretch film
