For more information on each type of stretch film, click the name of the item.

Hand Stretch Film

Hand stretch film is our high-performance low-density poly stretch wrap film which is used to wrap pallets or individual smaller products. The hand stretch films typically range from 3 to 18 inches, 50 to 90 gauge thickness, in blown or cast film.

Machine Stretch Film

Our high-end machine stretch film offers over 300% stretch which will increase efficiency, improve tension control and minimize tearing while wrapping pallets. The machine stretch films typically range from 20 to 30 inches in width, 50 to 150 gauge thickness, in blown or cast film. We also offer colors such as white, black and blue tint.

Wide Web Machine Stretch Film

Wide Web Machine Stretch Film is similar to the Machine Stretch Film previously mentioned, however, this is made more for larger applications. The roll weights typically range from 48 to 128 pounds. They come in 30, 40, 50, 60, and 80 inches in width, 80 gauge thickness, in blown or cast film.

Vented Film

Vented films reduce spoilage by eliminating condensation. They avoid rust development from hot products and allows cold air to get to the product quicker for frozen products. For plants and produce, the air circulation maintains freshness and item protection. The film stretches 200% and is available in hand and machine sizes. Vented films typically range from 17 to 19 inches in width, 12 to 33 pounds in roll weight, and comes in multiple different colors.

Printed Stretch Film

With an expected 15% increase in the printed stretch wrap and shrink film packaging market, getting custom films and wraps is the best option for your company. With printed wraps and films, you can include your company’s logo, which provides advertising, better load appearance, and less tampering. Printed Films come between 5 to 20 inches in width, 80 gauge thickness, 2 to 4 color print, and comes in either regular or extended core.
