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

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:
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.
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.
