Flush core pallet wrap

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.

We currently offer a wide variety of 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 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.


Extended core

Pallet wrap 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 a range of extended core stretch wraps, from medium and heavy duty to general purpose. 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.

Pre-stretch film is stretched during the manufacturing process and then and wound onto rolls. This results in a lightweight 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.

Our 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 misused. Pre-stretch (Chrome grade) hand pallet wrap is made using a blend of Octene (C8) and Hexene (C6) polymer.


Envirostretch coreless pallet wrap


The preferred choice of modern ecologically aware companies, Envirostretch is an innovative coreless environmentally friendly pallet wrap that is not only kinder to the environment, but also a cost effective choice when compared to standard stretch pallet wrap.

This high-quality cast hand stretch film is quick and easy to apply with the aid of a reusable pallet stretch wrapping dispenser. Users of environmentally friendly pallet wrapping film benefit from more stretch wrap per roll, along with less wastage and associated costs. This clear pallet wrap is strong, reliable, and the greener way to secure and protect your pallet loads.

Benefits of Envirostretch include:

  • 25% wider than standard stretch wrap, meaning fewer wraps are required to secure your load
  • Lighter and easier to use
  • Virtually the entire roll of film can be used, usually more than on traditional rolls
  • No cores to throw away, with the associated transportation cost and landfill benefits

Cast or blown film?

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

Cast pallet wrap

  • Pallet wrap, cast film 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.
  • Our cast pallet wrap has 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.

Blown pallet wrap

  • 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 is very tacky and will stick to pallets in very dusty or extremely cold (-32 Degrees C) wrapping environments.

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.

Flush and extended core - 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

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.

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.

Our 20-micron blown, extended core opaque red pallet wrap is the perfect addition when security is key and hides the content of pallets unlike many of the red tint pallet wraps available currently in the market place. Commonly used for pallet security or colour coding, this high puncture resistance stretch film offers great cling strength and pallet load stability.

Video: How to wrap a pallet
A demonstration on how to wrap a pallet with hand dispenser.

Choose the type of pallet wrap you require based on the pallet type. Regular loads can be wrapped 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: How to wrap a pallet using extended core film
A brief demonstration of a pallet being wrapped using extended core pallet wrap. Also 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.

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.
