What is Stretch Film?

Stretch film, also known as stretch wrap or pallet wrap, is a transparent, strong, stretchable film material. It is often used to wrap products and/or boxes on a pallet. Stretch film is widely used across industries, and helps secure items during transport, storage, and handling.

Unlock Cost Savings with High-Performance Stretch Film

As a business, we know you are tracking how much each pallet costs that leaves your door. The amount of stretch film used per pallet plays a role in the overall cost of your business. One way to reduce costs is to downgauge to a high-performance stretch film or switch to a machine film.

Utilizing high-performance film and taking advantage of these savings requires a cut-and-weigh test done by one of our expert WCP Account managers. During this test, we will match you with the right strength of stretch film for your product while maximizing efficiency.

WCP also has a full-service equipment technician department. We also ensure your equipment gets you the most out of each roll and achieve the best yield. Our experts can fine-tune your existing equipment or help match you with something new for your business. In some cases, even just changing the settings and parts on your equipment can reduce the amount of stretch film used by as much as 25% or more.
