Which Stretch Wrap Material Best Suits Your Application?

Cast and Blown Stretch Wrap: 
Cast film tends to be a more cost-effective stretch wrap choice as the manufacturing process is a lot faster than blown stretch film. However, blown stretch wrap offers greater durability and holding powers, therefore offering more security for heavier or larger loads. Both cast and blown films have their benefits, however cast is the most commonly used machine stretch film.

Pre-Stretched Stretch Wrap:
Pre-stretched stretch wrap is exactly what its name suggests, it is a film that has been pre-stretched to approximately 90% during the manufacturing process, prior to being wound on the roll. It is therefore commonly thinner material (lower gauge). There are three main advantages of pre-stretched stretch wrap:  One; maximum material use is attained. Two; more environmentally friendly than alternative stretch wraps with less film required. Three; it reduces operator application effort.
