WrapNet used to Wrap Bales of Hay for Shipping

Here is our netting used by one of our customers out in the Mid West to wrap bales of hay for shipping. The netting allows airflow between the bales to keep them dry and fresh.




20" X 10000' MACHINE GRADE SOFT KNITTED PALLET WRAP

WrapNet strong knitted netting is ideal for food industry products and other applications that require air flow. Pallet netting provides excellent load stability and allows for even ventilation so temperatures are similar in the middle and outside of the load.

If your products require a cooling down period before getting wrapped on a pallet, netting can eliminate that waiting time and prevent condensation from forming on the inside of the load.

Why Change to Pre-Stretch Pallet Wrap Stretch Film?

Why Change to Pre-Stretch Pallet Wrap Stretch Film?

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

The larger users, such as supermarkets, have seen the light fairly early on and have swapped conventional hand film for the factory pre-stretched variant, in order to reap the yield savings and ultimately drive down their costs to wrap a pallet.



With conventional hand wrap film, we are relying solely on the human element to maximize the yield values. With the pre-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 reels and the reduced energy required to wrap a pallet, both assists the operator in safer and easier wrapping procedures and can significantly increase productivity levels.

HYBRiD Plus pre-stretch film has the benefit of folded edge technology, which increases edge strength and creates superior roping effects when wrapping pallets.

The cores used for the HYBRiD Plus pre-stretch products are stronger and thinner than many of the rival products and therefore, offer an improved “green” element to the product offering.
The pre-stretch products can be offered in both Cored and Coreless format.

HYBRiD Plus Converted Stretch Pallet Wrap is #1 why?

• Impressive film consumption reduction.
• Air blown into layers - added product protection.
• Easy to wrap – less user energy required.
• Health and safety benefits for operators - lite weight rolls.
• Optimization of film memory - superior load containment.
• Consistent film stretch performance.
• Superior film clarity.
• Blend properties offer excellent puncture resistance.
• Minimal film necking.
• Suitable for cold wrapping environments.
• Core – stronger thinner hand roll core with improved “green” credentials.
• Superior one side cling option NOW available – in hand & machine.
• Multi micron / gauge film option – to fit application & ensure pallet load stability.
• Significant cost savings to wrap a pallet.
• Coreless film option – hand and machine length allowing us to offer an even greener product.

• Folded edge technology – double thickness edge creating superior roping effect.

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 film that comes off the roll smoothly. We are your single source for all your security wrap needs.

The Benefits of HYBRiD Plus Converted Stretch Film

The Benefits of HYBRiD Plus Converted Stretch Film



 HYBRiD Plus Converted film is stretched close to its ultimate break point prior to being wound onto rolls for final use.  This means the film doesn't require as much stretching energy as a standard stretch film to achieve the same wrapping force. This is a key reason why pre-stretched films are popular for hand wrap. In fact, with pre-stretched wrap, hand applications can create the same load stability as machine applications. The benefits of this are obvious.

We make HYBRiD Plus converted film by stretching it at high speed  between pre-stretching rollers.  Since the surface of the roller rotates faster than the primary roller, the film gets pulled between them and stretches. The resulting rolls are generally light and easy to handle, reducing operator fatigue.  Since there’s very little torque involved, users also benefit by being able to use a walk-forward wrapping technique, which can help prevent slip and fall incidents.

In terms of material costs, HYBRiD Plus films are much thinner than traditional stretch films. Ultimately, this produces less environmental waste since the operator uses less material during application.

There are many benefits to using HYBRiD Plus Converted stretch film.  Basically, users get the same (or better) load stability with less product, less physical energy, and greater control.
HYBRiD Plus converted film consumption can be less to one half that of traditional stretch film. This creates a cost savings of anywhere from 25% - 50%.

No Edge Damage (no wasted rolls):  HYBRiD Plus converted film has rolled edges and has air blown into the roll to support the middle of the roll from telescoping down.  These two processes together make it almost impossible to damage the roll edge when dropping it.  Traditional stretch film rolls often are thrown away because the user drops them and damages the edge.

Easier to Apply:  Lower torque requirements allow users to walk forward instead of backward during application – making for safer and easier control. Also, little or no stretching is required, so it much easier to wrap with less physical strength. The roll is lighter (about 50% less than traditional film) and easier to manage.  It’s about half the thickness and double the strength.

Film Memory:  Since the film is applied to the load with little force, it will naturally tighten after application. This unique film memory and its tendency to tighten after application is the single most important reason for pre-stretching film.

Stretch Consistency:   Traditional stretch film does not provide uniform stretch, so its performance is unpredictable; this leads to intermittent load failures.  The performance of pre-stretched film is much more controllable.

Other Benefits

• No width reduction during tensioning reduces the number of film wraps required.
• Excellent film cling ensures that film tails will stay in place.
• Good film clarity allows easier inspection of packaged products.
• Superior load retention provides better load stability.
• It stabilizes misshapen and protruding loads.
• It performs well in extreme cold.
• It facilitates compliance with Packaging Waste regulations - using less means less to dispose of.


Most hand-held stretch films need to be stretched at least 100 to 150 percent to make the film stiff enough to effectively hold a shifting load. In reality, operators rarely stretch film more than 50 percent during the wrap process. 
A nationwide evaluation of hand wrapping in real-life situations, found that the average person stretches hand wrap less than 15%.
