Polyethylene film stretch

Film stretch is usually utilized for multilayer polyethylene elastic films, which are made applying film extrusion technology called “CAST”. The film means that a thin layer of these materials has a precise consistency and high flexibility.

 

 

Linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) is the base material to provide film stretch. Our films have very high quality due to the most modernized production lines and the most advanced technology, as well as applying raw materials provided by well-known manufacturers. An extended range of polyethylene films are prepared from low density Polyethylene metallocene resins) m- LLDPE), Linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) and ultra-low-density polyethylene (ULDPE) containing 0 and 8% polyisobutylene (PIB).

Application

Stretch wrap/ film is used originally for wrapping and protecting loads packed on pallets to individual items with large overall dimensions, applying the stretch film is the most efficient method to pack and wrap the products due to its low thickness and high durability that guarantees load stability.

Stretch film/wrap Super Power and Power

The produced film thickness has been designed from 10 to 35 micrometers for wrapping and protecting the products utilizing packaging machines. Standard film width: 500 mm, it is achievable to produce another width film in multiplications of 250 mm.

 

 

What is a stretch film?

Stretch film is a thin, extensile plastic film (normally made of polyethylene) that is used to lock and bind protective items on pallets. As the stretch film is wrapped around the pallet, tension is created and enables the film to increase its length by up to 300 times. This tension then creates a contractile force around the load and keeps it constant in its place.

Types of stretch films

There are two main types of stretch film: manual stretch film and machine stretch film.

  1. Manual stretch film

The manual stretch film has been specifically designed for manual use and is therefore usually used in low volume in packaging and wrapping operations. It has been considered for manual packaging. The thickness of the produced film is from 10 to 40 micrometers and the width is 450 mm or 500 mm, tensile 100% has been guaranteed. The film has been produced on automatic machines that are equipped with facilities that control both the length and weight of the film on the roll.

  1. Machine stretch film

Machine stretch film is a film that has been specifically designed for use in traction wrapping machines and is usually used in large volume packaging and wrapping operations. Some common types of stretch film machines include:

Blown Stretch Film- It is made using the blown extrusion process. This process includes blowing heated resins into the bubble. The bubble then turns into sheets that are rolled and applied to a core tube.

Cast Stretch Film– It is made using the extrusion process. This process includes feeding the heated resins through a line of cooled rollers, which then solidifies the film.

Pre-Stretched film- It is a film that has already been extended in the production stages.

 

 

What kind of equipment is applied to use stretch materials?

Turntable stretch torsions

Stretch wrappers utilize a motorized rotating platform to rotate the pallets in their place and are a good solution for wrapping operations with medium or low-size, which involve wrapping 20 to 40 products per day. It can be in automatic or semi-automatic formats.

Rotary arm stretch wrapper

The mechanical arm is used in rotary arm wrapping that rotates around the load. They are remarkably useful in wrapping very heavy or light loads that can cause instability. Rotary arm stretch wrapper can be in automatic and semi-automatic forms and is proper for wrapping operations 40 times per hour.

Orbital horizontal ring stretchy wrappings

Orbital horizontal ring stretchy wrappers use a vertical rotary ring to wrap protective goods inside it and are noted to wrap long and wide loads such as lumber, doors, windows, plumbing, textiles, and other cases.

Shrink

You may have heard about the advantages of shrink wrap. However, what exactly is shrink wrap, and is it something you can use?

Shrink-wrap is a plastic film that you can wrap around any object, regardless of its size and shape. Heat is then applied to the surface, which causes the plastic to shrink. As it shrinks, it adapts to the shape of your object and seals itself. There are various ways to shrink. You can wrap smaller items in shrink nylon and then heat it. Other items may be placed in a small wrapping tube that is adjustable in length. Facilities that are collected systematically, cover larger loads, may utilize a collector packaging machine, which can wrap, heat, and seal all at once.

 

 

 

The advantageous of shrink nylon

Shrink nylon has many applications in different industries. Not only is it easy to use, but it also has an extensive range of advantages.

Protection

When heat is applied for packaging and wrapping, it produces a very tight seal. This plastic seal perfectly protects the contents of the vacuumed goods. After sealing, Other items are not exposed to damage that can be caused by dust, dirt, or moisture. Some types of shrink wrap even are along with UV radiation protection to preserve your products from the sun’s harmful rays.

Durability

Shrink nylon is provided by very durable plastic and is hard to tear or puncture it. Unlike other materials, shrink wrap does not become fragile and brittle at the exposed to the sun or severe cold. As soon as the shrink wrap is heated and sealed on your objects, it does not loosen.

Manipulation

Since the wrapping is sealed and maintains its shape, any manipulation is instantaneously visible. Accordingly, many pharmaceutical companies as well as food manufacturers currently wrap their products. Some types of shrink wrap that are employed by banks and government agencies change their color when plastic is stretched to show that the materials have been sealed.

The appropriate price

Shrink-wrap can be a very cost-effective choice compared to other wrapping materials and has been also designed to minimize space. It holds wrapped items together without using bulky materials such as boxes.

Brand

An added feature of shrink wrap is that it can be designed with colors, words, images and logos that advertise your products. Your product has not just been wrapped in plastic but wrapped in your brand/trademark from your product line until to be delivered to the end-user. This is a marketing instrument that can increase brand awareness, and expose you to your customer’s view.

 

 

Preservation

Many of the foods that must be stored, whether for transportation or to increase durability, are packaged in shrink wrap. Food shrink wrap is a regular choice for food companies.

Why does the package shrink?

Shrinking wrap is an easy process that demands only two things – the appropriate kind of plastic and heat.  You can make waterproof, dehumidify, and air proof almost anything you have with just the accurate nylon shrink roll and heating source. Since there is no limit to the size of a shrink wrap- large or small – you now have a way to protect even your largest items. As an additional point, it is satisfying to know that shrink nylons are recyclable. When you finished your work with it, you can deliver it with your other plastic bags to be recycled for the next usage.

Applications of bubble nylon

Bubble nylon is a transparent plastic material that is largely applied to wrap the breakable products and items. These bubbles are on the surface of the plastic normally like exited hemispheres and full of air that act as cushions for sensitive and breakable objects. Bubble wrapping is accessible in distinctive sizes. Although you can wrap anything with this wrapping, there are special items that should be better protected and carefully wrapped.
