Stretch film has improved dramatically over the last 10 years to the point that it can handle just about any shipment economically, efficiently and safely.
ADDISON, Ill. (PRWEB) August 07, 2014
B2B Industrial Packaging, one of the fastest growing stretch film, steel strapping and strapping tool repair providers in the U.S., just announced record sales of pre-stretched stretch film for the first half of 2014. Stretch film has been one of the primary drivers of the company’s meteoric growth over the last 10 years.
The company’s Vice President Pat Yonkus said, “Stretch film and pre-stretched stretch film in particular has been gradually replacing old packaging standbys. Stretch film has improved dramatically over the last 10 years to the point that it can handle just about any shipment economically, efficiently and safely.”
The primary advantage of pre-stretched film is that it requires much less force to apply —whether by machine or by hand—than stretch film because it is stretched close to its ultimate break point in the factory prior to being wound onto rolls. With pre-stretched wrap, users get the same (or better) load stability with less product, less physical energy and greater control.
Pre-stretched films are much thinner than traditional stretch films; this produces less environmental waste since the operator uses less material during application. Pre-stretched film consumption can be less than one half that of traditional stretch film; creating a cost savings of anywhere from 25% - 40%. Other benefits include:
- No width reduction during tensioning
- Excellent film cling
- Good film clarity
- Superior load retention
- Stability for misshapen and protruding loads
- Good performance in extreme cold
- Rolled edges that prevent damage
“We are very grateful to the 1,000s of loyal clients who have come to trust us to provide the best products for their exact needs,” Yonkus said. “We work hard to source the highest quality products at the best prices so that we can pass an industry-leading combination of quality, buying power, expertise and client service on to every company we work with.”
