You are probably throwing more than 50% of your stretch film out the door without even knowing it. More than 75% of stretch wrap equipment we have tested is performing below acceptable levels, resulting in tens of thousands of dollars in wasted stretch film.
Did you know that proper prestretching of the film is required to change the stretch film properties that create the Film Force, Film Tension, and Film Strength required to hold your product together during shipping?
Without this, the stretch film cannot perform the task required. Just because a stretch wrap machine is running does not mean it is working. Although it might be applying stretch film to the load, that doesn’t mean it is prestretching the stretch film and creating all the properties in the stretch film required to hold your pallet together during transport.
