PVC Laundry Wrap

Image
PVC Laundry wrap film keeps linens, laundry fresh — clean and crisp or fluffy soft — just the way they arrived at your store room, ready to be put into service when you need them. Clear, tough laundry wrap stretches, clings, and heat seals easily. It's ideal for hand wrapping clean linens in hospitals, hotels, dry cleaners, institutions, or commercial laundries.



Laundry Wrap...
• Is water resistant and hygienic. Keeps out dust, dirt and moisture from the time linens are wrapped until they are used — in the laundry, in transit, or in storage.
• Stretches farther to use less film per package. Laundry wrap is available in convenient widths and gauges for the most efficient usage.
• Replaces paper, string, tape, and bags. A one-step wrap and seal operation saves on labor and material costs.
• Makes contents accessible and easy to identify.
• Stacks without slipping and sliding due to inherent cling ability of film.
• Eliminates lost tags. Tags go inside and are easy to see without ope…

Resin and Stretch Film Pricing March 2015

March Resin Pricing
Respected resin pricing analyst projects
PVC resin up $.03/lb
PE - Flat, No Change
Trade Reports March 2015
"Processors (read film makers) are seeking another contract price decrease in March to add to the $.16/lb relief seen over the past 4 months; resin producers would like to see contracts roll flat."
Spot PE prices, down by over 20¢/lb, are very close to bottoming out. Domestic PE contract prices will need drop of at least another 7¢/lb at today’s feedstock prices. There are no supply issues, with spot PE trading very active and offerings abundant. Most processors are buying as needed in anticipation of lower prices ahead.
Trade Reports March 2015
PVC BUYERS RESIST HIKES
However, PVC suppliers announced two 3¢/lb price hikes for February and March, which one analyst refers to as “a defensive move” in order to stem any further price erosion. Implementation of an increase this month remains an open question. There is a lot of optimism for some real growth th…

Black Opaque Pallet Stretch Wrap

Image
Why use Black Stretch Pallet Wrap? The two main areas that companies use black opaque pallet stretch film are: 1. Most black stretch film has the additive UVI which prolongs the life of stretch film when pallets are stored outside in the sun and weather. The fact that it is opaque black help stop the sun from fading the products that are wrapped inside the pallet. 2. The other area is pilferage. Companies wrap there pallets in black stretch film so the pallet handlers at the freight companies do not know what the product is. The old story “out of site out of mind” If the pallet arrives at the destination and something is missing; it is easy to see where the pallet was opened. Quick Pak Inc has the largest selection of Opaque Security Films in stock. We stock both black and white opaque in both machine film lengths and hand film lengths. 20” wide black and white opaque machine films (64 and 80ga). 15” and 18” width Hand films (64, 80 and 115ga). Securi-Wrap is a strong and durable stretch fil…

Wrapping a very light pallet with the Revolution ST Wrapper

Image
Wrapping an unstable and very light pallet with Revolution ST and HYBRiD Plus Film.



Here is the info on this project:

4 Lbs per case
8 cases per layer
7 layers per pallet
56 cases total
Total weight with wood skid = 265 Lbs approx.

We did not stagger the layers on this test or use interleaving sheets.  Wanted the pallet as unstable as possible for the test.  We set the Revolution ST to wrap two wraps on the bottom and two wraps on the top with a 50% over lap on the way up and on the way down.

We used our HYBRiD80 Plus Converted Machine film on this pallet.  We set the machine speed at 70%.

Result: wrapped the pallet perfect and with a lot of holding power without crushing the cases.  The tension on the film was set low, with our converted machine film high tension is not required to produce a well wrapped and tight pallet.
