Why should you change to Converted Pallet Wrap Stretch Film?



This sector has seen phenomenal growth over the last 10 years and occupies an ever increasing share of the growing US demand for stretch film / pallet wrap.

With the converted stretch film, this is factory stretched to close to its optimal film “sweet” spot and maximizes all the film properties and ensures that the film is optimized correctly for improved load stability and containment. The film in use shows a consistent wrapping performance and benefits from minimal film necking.
The health and safety aspects of the pre-stretch film should also not be ignored.  The light weight r…
