Extended Core Pallet Wrap

Extended core pallet wrap

Pallet wrap (also known as stretch wrap and stretch film) with an extended core, making it easier and quicker to wrap around goods by hand. The core extends by 65mm each end of the roll.

Great for keeping goods tightly bound and palletised items stable, the film will retain its tension whilst in transit.

Extended core stretch film is easily applied by hand thanks to the extended cardboard core which effectively acts as a handle and can be held whilst wrapping the film around your products. The wrap adheres to itself once it is wrapped around your goods and protects them against dust and weather.

We sell 2 types of extended core pallet wrap, in medium and heavy duty rolls. We recommend our heavy duty 20 micron for large or irregularly-shaped loads.

These extended core stretch films are manufactured from high performance cast material. Production tolerances are strictly regulated so that we can guarantee consistent and accurate thickness and roll length.

What is the difference between cast and blown film?

Cast stretch films are typically more common in the market and have the following qualities:

  • Good level of transparency allowing labels or barcodes to be easily read.
  • The manufacturing nature of cast film makes it very consistent, throughout the roll, in terms of both cling and material thickness.
  • When unwinding cast stretch wrap off the roll it has a low noise output making it ideal in reducing noise levels in busy working spaces.
  • Compared with cheaper, lower quality films on the market our cast film has high resistance to tearing.

Blown stretch wrap has distinct qualities making it suitable for specific applications and environments.

Key features and benefits include:

  • The film is very tacky so is suited to very cold working environments (-32 degrees C)
  • The tacky nature of the film also means it will stick in very dusty working areas.
  • Strong resistance to puncturing.
  • Applies a high force onto a pallet, when wrapped around it. This helps improve load stability.

What is pre stretch pallet wrap?

Pre stretch film is stretched during the manufacturing process and then and wound onto rolls.

This results in a light weight film that is ideal for wrapping cages and uniformed pallets. It will produce significantly less waste than traditional or high performance films, which can help to reduce packaging waste obligations. It is cost efficient when compared to high performance and traditional pallet wrap.

Kite Packaging's pre stretch film has a rolled edge, meaning that the rolls are highly durable and are able to work without splitting even if dropped or abused at their work station, unlike many other films available.

Kite Packaging pre stretch (Chrome grade) hand pallet wrap is made using a blend of Octene(C8) and Hexene(C6) polymer.

Compliance

Our pallet wrap meets ISO 9001 standard quality certification and all of our stretch films are subject to the following quality checks:

  • Elongation: How much the film stretches.
  • Friction: How smooth the film is.
  • Dart Drop Impact: Pressure required to puncture the film.

Video: How to wrap a pallet using extended core film.
A brief demonstration of a pallet being wrapped using extended core pallet wrap, and see how the extended cores are used as handles.

Extended core rolls have a protruded core that can be used as handles.

Holding the extended core, simply walk around the pallet to apply.

Watch our 'how to wrap a pallet' video for further pallet wrapping instructions.

We also sell standard core, blue and black pallet wrap, as well as a handy dispenser.
