Stretch wrap is a polyethylene plastic that is typically used to secure boxes to pallets for shipping. The stretch wrap is pulled around the load and stretched. The plastic has a memory function and wants to return to its original size. Thus, the “elastic band effect” keeps the load tight.
Stretch wrapping is also is stretch known as pallet wrapping, hand wrapping or stretch wrapping
Elastomeric envelope is a plastic film typically made from high density polyethylene (HDPE), low density polyethylene (LDPE), linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) and/or polypropylene (PP) resins.
Elastomeric envelope is most commonly used to package products together for internal and external shipping. Warehouses/distribution centers, industrial plants and large retail stores typically generate large amounts of stretch packaging.
Elastomeric envelope is very strong, shaped to fit any item, and sticks only to itself, leaving no adhesive residue. Tired of moving furniture with drawers and cabinet doors flying open? Simply wrap your furniture in stretch wrap and the drawers and doors will be securely fastened.
Wrap cables together with electronics, ski poles, curtain rods and table legs. Better than string for many applications, you’ll be surprised how many uses this stretch wrap has. Large rolls make it quick and easy to wrap furniture and other bulky items.
Bundling and strapping is a method of holding and transporting or storing small items in stretch film without the use of tape, thin rope,
strapping and other conventional fixing methods that damage the surface of the product. Narrow width stretch films stretch more than wide widths while still retaining most of their memory/recovery properties.
This allows Elastomeric envelope to recover and form to fit the shape of the object – binding them tightly together.
Duct tape, thin rope or strapping will not consistently provide the same fit wraps as stretch film, even if the object settles. Better yet, stretch film can do this without adhesives. No adhesives means no sticky residue or torn box surfaces when removed.
