Hybrid X2 combines traditional high-performance film with the benefits of pre-stretched handwrap

The newest addition to Pollock Paper's (http://www.pollockpaper.com) extensive line of packaging solutions, and impressive list of eco-friendly products, is the Hybrid X2 Handwrap from AEP Industries, Inc. This new stretch film is a sustainable option for the environment and economy.

AEP's new hybrid technology combines state-of-the-art raw materials, innovative concepts and the company's high quality standards into an eco-friendly handwrap that saves both cost and resources. When tested against other stretch films, the X2 Hybrid Handwrap performed better in all comparative categories (maximum tensile strength, stiffness, puncture, tear):

  • Greater load retention
  • Reinforced edges prevent product damage
  • Puncture and tear resistant
  • Highest cling
  • Ease-of-use to wrap products
  • Cost savings over standard and ultra-performance handwraps

In addition, the X2 Hybrid Handwrap (15.0) resulted in a 50 percent improvement in containment force and material savings of 70 percent (against the 18.0 80-gauge) and 40 percent (against the 16.0 47-gauge wrap).

"The comparative testing results prove the X2 Hybrid Handwrap is tough and customers can rely on it to protect their products," said Don Pitts, corporate packaging specialist for Pollock Paper, noting the X2 Hybrid Handwrap comes in varying widths, lengths, weights, and is available in four-pack or bulk case. "Because the Hybrid X2 Handwrap incorporates benefits of pre-stretch hand wrap, it helps companies achieve their sustainability goals by using reduced resources, while enjoying ease of use, great containment and nick-proof edges."    

According to Ken Becan, Pollock Paper's Dallas sales manager, he discovered the significant benefits of pre-stretched hybrid hand wrap over traditional stretch films while conducting field tests with packaging customers.

"The Pollock Packaging Team worked with an international freight company to reduce damage to outbound freight, cost of materials and the amount of stretch film discarded due to nicks and handlers dropping the rolls," explained Becan. "We conducted a three-location field test using pre-stretched hybrid hand wrap and it was proven to be not only more durable, but less demanding physically on the associates and totally eliminated waste due to damage."
