What is Stretch Film?
Stretch film, also known as stretch wrap or pallet wrap, is a versatile plastic film used to secure and protect products during transportation, storage, or handling. It is typically made from materials like linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), which possesses excellent stretch and cling properties.
This flexible film is applied by hand or with automated machinery, tightly wrapping around items to create a secure and protective barrier. The stretchability of the film allows it to elongate and conform to the shape of the load, providing stability and preventing shifting or damage. Stretch film offers several advantages, including load containment, resistance to dust, moisture, and tampering, and improved visibility of packaged goods. It can be customized with various thicknesses, additives, and application methods to meet the specific packaging needs of different industries.

Select The Right Stretch Film
When selecting the right stretch film, important considerations include load stability, film thickness, compatibility with packaging machinery, and cost-effectiveness. These factors help in making an informed decision that meets specific packaging needs.
Stretch Film Additives
There are numerous additives that can be incorporated into stretch film formulations to enhance specific properties or address particular packaging requirements.
Incorporating a UVI additive helps protect stretch film and the packaged items from the harmful effects of UV radiation. It prevents degradation, discoloration, or loss of physical properties that can occur during outdoor storage or transportation.
A slip agent is added to the film formulation to reduce the coefficient of friction on the film surface. This additive promotes smooth unwinding and prevents film-to-film sticking, ensuring hassle-free application and efficient packaging operations.
Stretch films often contain antiblock agents, which create microscopic bumps on the film surface. These bumps minimize the adhesion between film layers, preventing blocking or sticking during storage or unwinding, and facilitating smooth film separation.
Antistatic agents are incorporated into stretch film to reduce the buildup of static electricity. This additive helps minimize static-related issues such as dust attraction, product clinging, or discharge, ensuring a clean and trouble-free packaging process.
Fragrance additives infuse stretch film with pleasant scents. This can be desirable for products such as perfumes, candles, or air fresheners, adding a pleasant olfactory experience to the packaging.
Volatile corrosion inhibitors are additives that release vapor to protect metal components within the packaged items from rust or corrosion. They create a protective barrier, preserving the integrity and longevity of metal products during storage or transportation.
Stretch films can be enhanced with colorants to provide visual identification, branding, or differentiation of packaged goods. Colorants can be used to identify specific products, facilitate sorting, or enhance visual appeal.
A tackifier additive is used to improve the cling properties of stretch film. It enhances the adhesion of the film to the load, ensuring secure containment and preventing the film from slipping or unraveling during transportation or storage.
Antifog agents are incorporated into stretch film to prevent the formation of condensation or fog on the film surface. This additive ensures optimal visibility and clarity of packaged products, particularly in applications where temperature changes or humidity variations can cause fogging.
Stretch films can contain oxygen scavengers that absorb oxygen within the packaging environment. This additive helps reduce the presence of oxygen, minimizing the chances of spoilage, oxidation, or degradation of oxygen-sensitive products.
Anti-fade agents are used in stretch film to protect the film and packaged items from fading due to exposure to sunlight or other light sources. This additive helps maintain the visual appearance and color stability of packaged
