Reduce stretch wrap usage and minimise costs

Recent posts

Machine stretch wrap can be a great place to start if you’re looking to make significant cost savings or reduce waste packaging figures.

Technological advancements in performance stretch films deliver great performance from low micron stretch – this means that you can wrap a pallet using less material and still have exceptional load containment.

This gives you:

  • Reduced costs
  • Reduced material usage
  • Increased yield from single rolls of film
  • Reduced operator roll changes – increasing production efficiency
  • Reduced waste disposal costs
  • Reduced carbon footprint


Professional analysis can help find the right material to maintain load containment by analysing your pallet profiles, weights and wrapping machines. A professional pallet wrap analysis is quick and easy and causes minimal disruption to your packing operation.

Case Study

We worked with a leading distributor who had recently invested in 5 core brake stretch wrap machines but were using a 24 micron power pre-cast film.

We ran a comparison with two other films and replaced their existing product with a low micron Pre-Stretch performance film.

The switch in film resulted in:

  • A yield improvement of 314%
  • Increased pallets wrapped per tonne – 588 vs 142
  • Reduction in film used per pallet – 170 grams vs 705 grams
  • 56% cost reduction on stretch wrap spend
  • Reduced waste packaging
  • Improved carbon footprint
  • Increased productivity – fewer roll changes
