Addison, IL (PRWEB) April 25, 2012
B2B Industrial Packaging LLC just announced that it is a national distributor for Sigma Stretch Film, the largest stretch film manufacturer in the U.S. This is a significant addition to B2B Industrial Packaging’s continually expanding inventory of cutting-edge packaging products.
One of Sigma’s signature, high-demand offerings is pre-stretched film, which is stretched close to its ultimate break point prior to being wound onto rolls for final use. Pre-stretched films are much thinner than traditional stretch films. Ultimately, this produces less environmental waste since the operator uses less material during application. Other benefits include:
- Film Memory: Since the film is applied to the load with little force, it will naturally tighten after application. This unique film memory and its tendency to tighten after application is the single most important reason for pre-stretching film.
- Price: Pre-stretched film consumption can be less than one half that of traditional stretch film. This creates a cost savings of anywhere from 25% - 40%.
- No Edge Damage (no wasted rolls): Pre-stretched film has rolled edges and has air blown into the roll to keep the middle of the roll from telescoping down. These two processes together make it almost impossible to damage the roll edge when dropping it. Traditional stretch film rolls often are thrown away because the user drops them and damages the edge.
- Easier to Apply: Lower torque requirements allow users to walk forward instead of backward during application – allowing safer and easier control. Also, little or no stretching is required, so it’s much easier to wrap with less physical strength. The roll is lighter (about 2/3 less than traditional film) and easier to manage. It’s about half the thickness and double the strength.
- Stretch Consistency: Traditional stretch film does not provide uniform stretch, so its performance is unpredictable; this leads to intermittent load failures. The performance of pre-stretched film is much more controllable.
Basically, users get the same (or better) load stability with less product, less physical energy, and greater control. “This is a fine product that we are very proud to be offering,” said Mike Theriault, B2B Industrial Packaging’s president and CEO. “We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship.”
