Pre-stretched films are popular for hand wrap because they require much less energy to stretch as standard film. At the same time, it provides the same load stability as machine applications. The pre-stretch rolls are lighter and easier to handle, reducing operator fatigue. When it comes to material costs, pre-stretched films are much thinner than traditional stretch films. Ultimately, this produces less environmental waste since the operator uses less material during application.
Using pre-stretched film creates a cost savings of anywhere from 25% - 40% vs hand wrapping with regular stretch film.
Pre-stretched rolls have protected edges to minimize damage to film from accidental drops.
Since the film is applied to the load with little force, it will naturally tighten after application.
