Pallet wrap (also known as stretch wrap and stretch film) is a strong plastic film that is easily stretched around items, especially items on a pallet. The elastic recovery of the wrap means that it keeps the items tightly bound, so that pallet items are stabilised and unit loads can be created.

Our stretch wrap is easily applied either by hand or with our hand-held dispenser. The wrap adheres to itself once it is wrapped around the pallet, or around goods, and protects the goods against dust and weather. Stretch film retains its tension while in transit, so items will not slide around and get damaged.

All rolls have a core diameter of 4cm and are fully compatible with our Hand Held Stretch Wrap Dispensers. The cores themselves weigh 0.21-0.22 Kg.

Our range of pallet wrap

We currently offer seven different types of pallet wrap, which includes light to extra heavy duty stretch film rolls.

Standard (flush core)

Our flush core range of pallet wrap films are manufactured from high quality clear films (cast and blown) available in many different thicknesses and colours, to suit various applications.

The medium duty (our most popular stretch) is 17 micron to suit most general pallet wrapping applications and is available in 400mm or 500mm wide rolls.

Alternatively we supply heavy duty film in a 20 micron thickness, which works well with heavier goods and irregular shaped loads. Our extra heavy duty rolls are 30 micron thick, to provide even better protection for sharp pallets and ‘ugly’ freight and prove particularly popular in the construction and building industries.

Coloured films

Our blue stretch wrap is commonly used in food packaging, and used to distinguish food from other non-food pallets. The blue tint is instantly recognisable in the food industry as a non-food item, as there are no food products that are naturally blue in colour.

Our blue stretch wrap is made from raw material that is certified for contact with food, and does not intentionally include harmful materials such as cyanides, CFCs, genetically modified organisms, pesticides, radioactive substances, carcinogenic substances or substances with possible allergic properties (Click here and here for full details).

We also supply security stretch in black, designed to stop your goods from being identified once they are on your pallet, should they be valuable or sensitive. The coloured film will also offer UV protection to wrapped goods. In addition to this range, we sell extended core pallet wrap which is useful if you do not wish to use a dispenser, as the longer core gives you something to grip when applying the film.

Cast or Blown Film?

Stretch film is manufactured in either ‘cast’ or ‘blown’. Below are some key facts relating to each type.

Kite Packaging cast pallet wrap

  • Pallet wrap, cast Film, from Kite Packaging has very good transparency, enabling barcodes and labels to easily be read through the wrapping.
  • Our cast stretch wrap has extremely good tear resistance, when comparing Kite Packaging’s range to other films on the market.
  • Kite Packaging cast pallet wrap have an extremely quiet unwind reducing noise levels over many other films.
  • Due to the technologies used in the manufacture of Kite Packaging Cast film it has very consistent cling and thickness throughout the roll.

Kite Packaging blown pallet warp

  • Blown pallet wrap has a very high puncture resistance compared to other films on the market
  • Kite Packaging blown stretch wrap puts a high force onto the pallet, creating strong load stability
  • Blown pallet wrap, from Kite Packaging, is very tacky and will stick to pallets in very dusty or extremely cold (-32 Degrees C) wrapping environments.

Compliance

Our entire clear hand stretch wrap range is made from high performance cast film; one of the most commonly used materials for pallet wrap, and the highest quality type. It is perfect for general use and will ensure that the products on your pallet are all kept safe and protected from dust.

We can guarantee consistent and accurate thickness and roll length through strictly regulated production tolerances. Our factory manufactures film to ISO 9001 certification and conducts the following quality checks:

  • Friction: Checks the smoothness of the film
  • Elongation: Measures how much the film stretches
  • Dart Drop Impact: Records the pressure required to puncture the film

Video: How to stretch wrap a pallet.
Watch a demonstration of a pallet being wrapped using standard hand pallet wrap and a dispenser.

Choose the type of pallet wrap you require based on the pallet type. Regular loads can be wrap using a lighter grade film.

Heavier loads require a thicker film to stabilise the pallet.

Very heavy or sharp edged loads require a heavy duty film, and for very irregular and sharp edged loads the thickest, strongest film is recommended.

Start by tying the end of the roll to the corner of the pallet and put 2 wraps around the bottom of the load, ensuring you overlap the pallet.

Work your way up and around the pallet in a spiral.

You can see the film"s elasticity when you cut away the film.

As well as standard hand pallet wrap we sell extended core, envirostretch, blue and black hand rolls.

Video: Discover our black security and blue tint pallet wrap.
A demonstration of our black security and blue tinted food films, showing how they appear when applied to a pallet.

Our black security pallet wrap is applied in the same way as standard film, and can be used with a dispenser.

It is completely opaque, making it ideal for covering high value or sensitive loads.

The dark film completely obscures the contents of the pallet.

Our blue tint pallet wrap looks dark blue on the roll, but is transparent when applied. This film is commonly used to wrap food items.
