It’s a Bit of a Stretch – What Sort of Stretch Film is Right for You?

Here at Dennison Stretch Films, we specialise in providing pallet wrap and the like for all those who need reliable and quality packaging, but when we say the words ‘stretch film’ or ‘pallet wrap’, what exactly do we mean? After all, even though most people don’t differentiate between the types of film, we certainly do! As you might expect, our variations of stretch film are ideally suited for diverse purposes, so which sort would be the best choice for your needs? Read on to learn more…



Hand Stretch Film

For quality and utility, you really can’t beat our hand stretch film. Even though automation exists, there will always be a place for manual input. As a result of our technology and commitment to researching the very best properties for stretch film, this type of film excels, with robust qualities of resistance and flexibility, and it’s versatile enough for literally any need. By using strong cardboard cores, ease of use is ensured, and a full range of sizes in both black and transparent colourations are available. ‘Sizes’ means thicknesses too, so this film is definitely one of our ‘work horse’ options.



Machine Wrap Stretch Film

So, with all that being said, why would you look anywhere other than hand stretch film? Well, there are advantages to other sorts! Take machine wrap film. It comes with many benefits– including the ability to be recycled 100% of the time, and a robust water resistance – but the real attraction of this film is for budget requirements. Using automation to apply the stretch film means that application and production is precise to the point of incredulity, and that allows us to pass on a significant saving to you. Sure, the selection of sizes is more limited if you require black film, but it still has its place.



Agricultural Stretch Film

We’ve covered our two ‘mainstay’ choices for stretch film, but what about when things get specific? In such cases, we simply create something to meet the need. Many of our clients hail from the agricultural industry, and so we supply agricultural film to cater to their more exacting needs. We use extrusion technology to reinforce this film, allowing it to be very puncture resistant and UV stable; after all, it’s going to be used outside! It can be wrapped around any shape too, and comes in various sizes and colours. Did we mention it’s cost-effective as well? We’d say that’s all bases covered.



Bespoke Stretch Film

So, you’ve read about our most common options for stretch film, and still you have a specific requirement that you don’t feel has been addressed? If that’s what you’re thinking, then don’t think for a moment that you’ve got a situation on your hands that can’t be fixed. We’re fully aware that one size doesn’t fit all, and that’s where our bespoke range of stretch film comes in. When your requests for something like colour, size and grade just can’t be met by a normal style of wrap, just let us know what it is that you need. Our manufacturing facilities will invariably prove up to the task.
