The top 5 advantages of reviewing your stretch film

Stretch Film Machine

Whilst your stretch film might seem like a straight forward packaging product, there’s a lot more to it than meets the eye!

We bet that most of the time, you just look at how much you’re paying for a roll of stretch film.

On face value, you might think you’re getting the best deal if you get a cheaper roll price – yet there’s lots more you should consider.

For example, you might be using an expensive, high specification stretch film but might not need to. Instead, you could swap to a lower micron, intelligently engineered film to make savings. But, how do you know you’re using the right film? With one of our free-of-charge stretch film health checks!

What does our stretch film health check involve?

Our professional analysis can help you get the most out of your stretch film. When we complete our health check, you can expect us to review:

  • The amount of film you’re using
  • How effectively your film stretches
  • How much it currently costs you to wrap a pallet
  • The current tension of your film & pallet load stability
  • The specification of the film you’re using & your current application method

Once we’ve evaluated all the information, we’ll recommend the stretch film and/or equipment that will work best for your business. Using our analysis, we’ll evidence how our recommendation can offer lots of different advantages.
