Pallet Wrap - Standard Core
Clear pallet wrap on standard cardboard cores, designed for wrapping pallets quickly and easily to protect merchandise and enhance the structural integrity of the load.
Blown Stretch Film is a highly popular and respected material for wrapping pallets and their contents. The process in which this Blown Stretch film is made results in it being very strong, tough to puncture and resilient to tearing; making it a perfect choice for securing and protecting pallets of product.
Our Blown Stretchfilms require a little more muscle to stretch than Cast Stretchfilms, however, the resulting tension created is well worth the effort as it is the tension which leads to load containment, and since the film will attempt to ‘shrink’ back to its pre-stretched state this tension is sustained.
The Stretchfilms in this category are wound onto standard cores. These are cardboard cores which are marginally longer than the width of the film – they protrude by about 15mm on each side. The film is dispensed in one of two ways:
Firstly, the operative simply inserts their fingers into the core and applies the film by walking around the pallet and letting the film unwind, applying tension as they do so. This is the preferred method for many as they can get a good ‘feel’ for the process allowing fairly accurate tension to be applied. However, friction is caused, particularly at speed, which can injure the fingers – gloves can be worn but of course, this hinders the ability to feel the amount of tension being applied. Although a perfectly viable method of pallet wrapping, we would only suggest this technique where small numbers of pallets are being wrapped infrequently.
Secondly, these films can be applied by using a Pallet Wrap Dispenser. These tools are specifically designed for the purpose of dispensing stretch film and help improve workflow, increase productivity and decrease operator fatigue whilst eliminating finger burn!
