Cast Stretch Films

Cast Hand Stretch Films provide a smooth surface that enables excellent cling without additives.

In addition a quieter stretch wrapping environment, excellent optics, gloss and strength.

Handheld stretch films are used for manual stretch wrap packaging application.

Designed for hand wrapping application, hand film rolls are lighter and smaller than machine film rolls to make application easier.

Tips for Pallet Wrapping Using Handheld Stretch Films:

  • Always place the outside of the film to surface of pallet. 
  • Secure the stretch film to the pallet before wrapping by tying it to the pallet base.
  • Always ensure film covers the base of pallet and the bottom layer of the load. Wrap bottom of pallet at least twice to secure load.
  • Overlap the stretch film by 30 to 50%. Depending on the weight of your load, consider wrapping the pallet twice. 
  • To increase the strength, use the film horizontally to create a “strap”.
  • Always use a handheld stretch film dispenser for rapid easy application and to prevent injury through straining or repetitive use.
