Shipping damages have been one of the big concerns for manufacturers and suppliers across the world. First, these damages can tarnish the brand image, increase their logistics efforts, and shrink their profit margins. Nowadays, businesses are considering stretch wraps to protect the goods from damage during shipping.  

Stretch wraps are a type of plastic films that are used to tie, bind, or items of similar types together on a pallet or individually. Generally, made from linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) resins, these packaging solutions are widely used across industries for their stability, reliability, durability, and convenience. At BlueRose Packaging, we provide an extensive variety of stretch films and wraps. Whether for machine or hand use, our products come in various colors, lengths, and strengths to meet industry-specific needs. Contact us today at bluerose@bluerosepackaging.com for more information.

Types of Stretch Wrap Films Offered by BlueRose Packaging

Today, you can find several stretch film manufacturers and suppliers dealing with stretch wrap films. We believe customizability and quality are two factors that make us stand out as a trustworthy stretch film manufacturer among our competitors. The following are a few common types of stretch film wrap films offered by us.

  • Cast Films: These are clear films with good hold and uniform layering. Our cast films offer good load retention and stretch capacity. They are best for uniform loads with even edges and are quiet to unwind. Being smooth, cast film releases from the roll gently and can be used to package items together with minimal effort.
  • Blown Films: These films assure good hold as well as strong puncture resistance. The films may not be as quiet as cast films; however, they can bind or adhere to irregularly shaped objects or objects with sharp edges.  
  • Micron Films: These films assure good hold and strong puncture resistance like blown films. Our micron films are generally used for packaging irregularly shaped objects, and they also have quiet application, unlike blown films. These films are denser than the other two types of stretch films mentioned here, and hence their quantity required for packaging is lesser.
  • Customized Stretch Wrap Films: We can provide stretch film rolls in different lengths and gauges to hold different weights. There are standard stretch wrap films offered; however, we can customize them for packaging products with odd shapes and uneven loads. We can customize them specifically to your requirements.   

Benefits of Stretch Wrap Films

There are several benefits of choosing stretch wrap films for your packaging applications and the following are a few prominent ones among them.

  • Protection: The stretch films used for wrapping offer wide coverage, durability, stretching capacity, and puncture resistance. All these features assure immense protection to packaged or palletized goods. Additionally, the stretch films protect products from moisture, dirt, and dust.  
  • Clean Packaging: Many packaging solutions leave behind messy residues on peeling off; however, this is not the case with stretch film wraps. They can be easily peeled off and leave behind no residues.
  • Ease of Use and Transparency: The stretch wraps are made from clear plastic and can be applied easily using a machine or hand. The clarity of stretch wrap films enables easy identification and scanning, which helps speed up cargo transfer in freight applications.
  • Recyclability and Reusability: These wrap films are made from low-density polyethylene, which is a recyclable material. This recyclability helps reduce plastic waste and makes it reusable, too.  
  • Cost Effectiveness: This is a combination of all the aforementioned factors. These packaging solutions are durable, reliable, and assure efficient packaging, which makes them cost-effective. The stretch wrap film wrappers use less energy for operating, unlike other contemporary packaging machines. You can further save on costs by ordering wholesale stretch films from us.
  • Versatility: The stretch wrap packaging is compatible with all pallet load types.
