UVI Pallet Stretch Film

Image
UVI (Ultra Violet Inhibitor) stretch wrap is used in palletizing products for long term outside storage. Weather Machine Stretch Wrap is a clear stretch film which provides protection from the elements. The ultra-violet additives protects this stretch film from photo degradation while maintaining strength and load holding integrity during prolonged outdoor exposure.  UVI machine stretch wrap formulation is tested under controlled conditions (accelerated aging weatherometer).  Do we really need an UVI Film?UVI additives can be expensive. If you plan to store the film outside for any length of time, you need a UVI film. Most UVI films will last for an average of 3-6 months. It requires high concentrations of UVI to guarantee a film to last 9-12 months, which can increase the cost significantly.The effect of UVI additive is often seasonal and varies from one location to another.  A UVI Film that will last 9 months from September to May, could only last 3 months during June, July and Augu…

What is a pressure-sensitive label?

Image
What is a pressure-sensitive label?



What is a pressure sensitive label? Are they stickers, product identifiers, decals or a component of decorative packaging? Yes!  Pressure-sensitive labels are used everywhere from toys, food bottles, medical devices, and corrugated boxes, to plastic pouches and so much more.
Let's break it down:  A pressure-sensitive label, or self-adhesive label, is made up of three layers: a face stock, an adhesive and a release liner. We refer to this as the "label sandwich." When a label is manufactured, these three components are sandwiched together to create a label material that can be printed on, laminated, die-cut, and finally peeled off and applied to your product.
Facestock:  The facestock is the main part of the label. The material could be paper, film, or metallic foil. This is the layer where the ink is applied on press. For specific applications, a topcoat or laminate may be applied to protect the label artwork or enhance certain areas …

November LLDPE Price Increase

Image
November LLDPE Price Increase

Most U.S. resin producers have either revised their prior price increases or nominated a fresh price increase for November LLDPE. Through these actions, the increases have effectively been consolidated to $.05/lb effective Nov 1st. October PE contracts still need to be negotiated and settled before the Nov increases come into play: Most Polyethylene producers are trying to roll Oct contract pricing flat s. Processors (film makers)are looking for another decrease. PE contracts are down $.09/lb over the last 2 months.

For as little as $4,990 you and your company can soon be the proud owners of a Revolution ST pallet wrapper and start benefitting from cheaper wrapping costs (compared to hand wrap) from the first day i…

How to Bundle you Packages for Shipping

How to Bundle you Packages for Shipping.



UPS and FedEx are very specific about how they want you to safely bundle your packages.  There are three ways to accomplish this.
Bundling with Strapping:
The image to the right illustrates how the carriers recommend you strap your packages when bundling them.  They suggest two straps in each direction.  They also discourage the strapping from being used as handles.  This can lead to weakened or broken seals which can result in problems in shipping.
The most common material for these purposes is polypropylene strapping.  This material is available in a variety of widths and break strengths.  The strapping can be applied and sealed with manual tools, battery operated hand-held tools, pneumatic tools, or semi-automatic machines. 
Bundling with Tape:
For those who will bundle infrequently, tape is an easier option than strapping.  It requires no special tools and is easily applied.
While some carton sealing tapes will suffice, it is highly recomme…

How to Wrap Firewood in Bundles

Stretch Wrap and Firewood Bundling.




Whether you bundle firewood for sale for for your own personal use, stretch wrap is the most preferred way to bundle your material.  Choosing the right wrap is very subjective and there are many options, but the information below should help you determine what will work best for you.

What size stretch wrap do I need?

Bundling Film


This is narrow width stretch wrap that comes in widths of 2", 3" and 5".  Bundling film is a good choice when you want to keep your firewood vented.  It allows you to wrap just the ends, or both ends and the middle, and reduce the possibility of moisture becoming trapped in the wrap.

Hand Wrap


This is a wider wrap that comes in stock widths of 12", 15" and 18".  With the extra width, this can allow for a quicker wrap time and will fit many firewood bundling machines and devices.  All of our hand wrap comes on a standard 3" core.
 What gauge stretch wrap should I use?

Ultimately, this is …

Bundling Stretch Pallet Wrap.

Bundling Stretch Pallet Wrap.




Bundling stretch wrap or also called bundling or banding stretch film can be used to fix small items together, and can save time and money replacing heavier and more expensive packaging products.

Bundling wrap can replace the use of tape and twine to packaging small items together. Unlike tapes bundling stretch film will not stick to the product or leave residue.

Our bundling stretch wrap comes in 2in., 3 in., and 5 in. sizes. Options included in these film sizes:

Bundling stretch wrap film on a 3" core w/ plastic handle

Bundling stretch wrap film on a disposable 1" Extended corrugated core.

October Polyethylene Price Increase Adjustments



Several North American resin producers have already announced adjustments to their price increases previously nominated for October Polyethylene. Dow Chemical has issued a 2-cent TVA - Temporary Voluntary Allowance - effectively reducing their $.07/lb price increase to just $.05/lb, matching the magnitude of other company's increases. However, ExxonMobil and Formosa Plastics subsequently each pushed back the implementation of their $.05/lb price increase from October to November, offering to roll contracts flat from September. Other producers will likely follow. It is still just the beginning of the month, and film producers/processors are clamoring for another decrease, so October contract negotiations are far from over...

Right Stretch Film For The Pallets I Wrap.

Image
Gauge is the most common measure of the thickness of stretch wrap film (sometimes also measured in microns). For example 100 gauge = 25.4 microns = .0254mm = .001in. The higher the gauge number, the thicker the film. So for example a 100 gauge stretch wrap is thicker than 80 gauge, 60 gauge and so on.LOAD TYPE: First we can look at load type which can be a determining factor in stretch wrap gauge. Lighter gauge (40-80 Gauge) Stretch Wrap Films are typically required for:Lighter loads, such as foam products, or light food products (snack foods like chips, etc)Even, square loads (also known as A-loads)Little to no puncture potential Heavier gauge (90-135 Gauge) Stretch Wrap Films are typically required for:Heavy loads, such as fasteners, machine parts, bags of mortar or mulch, etc.Uneven loads with more corners and angles (also known as B- or C-loads)Greater puncture potentialLOAD WEIGHT: Second we can look at load weight which can also help determine in stretch wrap gauge.For loads Up…

Printed Pallet Wrap and Colored Stretch Films

Image
Printed Stretch Film and Colored pallet Wrap

Generally, there are four reasons why a company may be interested in printed stretch film (or stretch wrap):To minimize the possibility of pallets being broken in transit Security/Theft deterrence Warehouse/Internal identification Brand exposure Essentially, printed stretch film is the same as regular stretch film, but with your logo or the text of your choice printed on the roll. In light of the reasons noted above, it can be a very useful option. It can also present its own potential negatives:Neck-down - distortion of the logo/text caused when the film is stretchedOverlap rendering the logo/text illegible or unidentifiableDirection - with a logo, or more particularly with text, the wrap must be applied in a certain direction or it goes on backwards, rendering it illegible

Given the relatively high cost and other limitations of printed stretch wrap, it is not a viable option for most users, though it may look attractive in concept.Cost - pr…
