Stretch Wrapping vs. Shrink Wrapping - Understanding the Difference

Image
When it comes to protecting products, or holding products together and intact for transport; stretch and shrink wrapping are often employed. Although these two types of wrapping have many differences, they are often confused.   We aim to outline the differences between the two products and under what application they are both utilized.
Stretch wrapping
Shrink wrapping

What is it?  Stretch wrapping is stretchable plastic film that is wrapped around a load of products allowing it to be stretched; this elasticity holds the load tightly together.   

Shrink Wrapping is covered loosely around a product or load, it shrinks tightly when heat is applied.
What is it made from?  Made from Polyethylene plastic Resin.
What is it used for?  This type of wrapping is usually employed to hold loads and products together on a pallet for transportation or storage purposes. Stretch wrap can come in a variety of specialty films. Some examples are: UV stretch wrap, vented pallet wrap, anti-static stretch f…

What Is The Best Stretch Film

Image
Every application and company is different. Sure, there are commonalities, but there's a lot of detail that film experts and local reps consider when suggesting the optimal stretch film for an application. The "best stretch film" is relative - based on your goals, circumstances and expectations. Film gauge, pre-stretch capability, puncture resistance, tear propagation and other performance characteristics are examples of the specs which the film experts will consider with you as they help to select a film.
There's a basic difference in how films are manufactured though that's interesting to understand as someone who relies on the "system" of stretch wrapping equipment and film to safely deliver your loads to their destination.
Films are either blown or cast.
Let's look at the difference in the manufacturing process. Please note - this is intended to be informative and not to specify one method or material or another.

What is Stretch Film

Image
Stretch film is a type of highly stretchable plastic film, typically made out of linear low-density polyethylene that is wrapped around items to keep them tightly bound. 
One of the main benefits of this type of packaging is that through Quick Pak Inc, this film is available in a variety of different thicknesses to complement many packaging applications.
When Should You Use Stretch Film?

Typically, stretch film is used to hold boxes and pallets together when they are being moved from one place to another. For example, a warehouse may package a series of products into boxes, strap them together using stretch film, and then transport them to a store, so they are available to consumers.
What Size of Film Should You Use?
Different sizes and widths of film are needed, depending on the specific application. For example, 60 gauge stretch film is ideal for smaller objects, like small boxes, that need to be banded together. 
Instead of tape, many moving companies use this type of packaging pr…

Why Using Stretch Banding Pallet Wrap is Important?

Image
Stretch Banding Film is the process of securing bundles of a product to get them ready for shipment.

Extends the life of the product—When products are properly banded together, they are less likely to become loose and get damaged while they are being transported from one place to another. 
Ultimately, this minimizes loss and can contribute to greater profitability.
Conserves space—By using banding material, manufacturers are able to keep large orders of products in smaller bundles. Not only does this conserve valuable warehouse space, but it also ensures that products can be retrieved easily before a shipment is made.
Promotes safety—Strapping products together is a safety precaution that needs to be taken, especially if the products are stored in racks. If products are not bundled together, there is a greater chance that a product will fall from an elevated height and injure someone down below.

To take advantage of these benefits, it is important to use banding material that is an …

Why replace Hand Wrap with a Revolution Pallet Stretch Wrapper for your Pallet Wrapping Applications.
Have you ever asked yourself if hand wrapping is the most cost effective, fast and safe way for your packaging applications?

We can give you at least 10 reasons why it is not, and that is time for a Stretch Wrapper!
Consistent and uniform application - Professional package – Training - Employee Safety - Load Integrity - Damage Control - Customer Satisfaction - Film Savings - Damaged Hand Wrap Rolls - Quality Control.
1.) Consistent and uniform application: An operator who wraps pallets with hand wrap stretch film is not able to wrap every load exactly the same way, time and time again. A load wrapped by one operator Monday morning will not be wrapped the same way as another operator on Friday afternoon. Pallet wrapping with a Revolution stretch wrap machine eliminates this issue.
2.) Professional Package: Wrapping a pallet using a Revolution stretch wrap machine produces a clean profe…
