How to choose a Pallet wrap?

A pallet wrap, also known as plastic film, is commonly used to wrap pallets and cardboard boxes, but in the case of adhesive films, it is also used in food products. Some Pallet Wrap is the same for most people but come in a variety of qualities. You can find rolls of 12-micron film, but some are much thicker at 15, 17, 20, 23, and even 30 microns. Normally, it is co-extruded in 3 layers, but it can also be co-extruded in 5 layers. Transparent, opaque black or white Pallet wrap is available in different types depending on the intended use. That’s why we provide this guide to make the right choices.

  • Elasticity: Facilitates adhesion of pallets and boxes
  • Recyclable: Protects the environment
  • Self-adhesive: Adhesive pallets without adhesive tape

Transparent Pallet Wrap

Polyethene Stretch Film is extremely tearing resistant. Thanks to its elastic side, plastic film is on your side of all expeditions. Ideal for product protection, maintenance, palletizing and storage. In addition to the excellent cohesiveness and stability of the palletized luggage, the clear plastic film allows the luggage to be secured to the pallet during transportation and storage.

Depending on the strength, it can wrap from light to heavy luggage.

Here are some details to know the thickness to choose:

  • 250 kg pallet: 15-micron pallet wrap
  • 250-400 kg pallet: 17-micron pallet wrap
  • Pallet 400-600 kg: 20-micron pallet wrap
  • Pallet 600 kg or more: 23 microns or 30-micron stretch film

The transparency of the plastic film enhances the product and makes it easy to identify the contents of the product. It also makes barcodes and other accompanying documents easier to read. The standard format is 45 x 300 m (width x length), but a 10 cm x 150 m mini elastic film spool is suitable for packaging grouping, closure of opened products, or protection from sensitive surface contamination. There is also.

Black Pallet wrap

Black Plastic Pallet wrap is ideal for ensuring cargo confidentiality. The opaque hand stretch film not only protects the contents of the pallet but also prevents the temptation of theft during storage or transportation.

White Pallet wrap

Like the previous film, the white plastic Pallet wrap protects sensitive products from light and protects you from curious people thanks to its opacity. It can be used outdoors and has the advantage of protecting against UV rays. Therefore, it is suitable for pallets with food.

Pallet Cap

The pallet cap ideally complements the plastic stretch film. Made of polyethene, it sits on top of the pallet and protects the top of the pallet from moisture and dust. The plastic pallet cover is completed by wrapping it in stretch film, which ensures airtightness in bad weather and allows the pallet to be stored and transported in a dry place.

Food Pallet wrap

This type of Pallet wrap is specialized in the food sector. This means that you can keep your food longer. Therefore, it is not suitable for packaging pallets, and conversely, manual stretch films for pallets are not suitable for the food sector. Available in 300 m rolls, 30 or 45 cm wide wrap film is especially suitable for catering professionals.
