Hand stretch film is considered any stretch film roll that is
easily applied by hand. Most hand stretch film rolls weigh less
than ten pounds. Hand rolls can come in a variety of widths, but
the most common widths are 15 and 18 inch wide rolls. Hand stretch
rolls can be applied with or without a stretch film dispenser. The
dispensers often have a braking system to help obtain a thighter
stretch when applying the film. Our hand pallet wrap comes with a
standard 3 inch core size allowing rolls to easily fit any
dispensers. View the different hand stretch wraps to choose from
Hand Stretch Film (3 inch Core)
This is a standard gauged stretch film that is comparable to any
other brand of true gauged stretch film. It is made with a cast
extrusion process that uses rollers to cool the film as it is
This enables a faster extrusion process than blown extrusion,
therefore making a more affordable stretch film. Our hand stretch
wrap offers great stretch, strength, and clarity for a variety of
Micron Hand Stretch Film (3 inch Core)
Our micron stretch film is what we refer to as an equivalent
stretch film. Many experts predict a shift in the stretch film
industry to equivalent films. They are produced from a different
formula than the standard gauged film. This formula allows the
equivalent film to be thinner, stronger, and stiffer than standard
gauged stretch film.
Many companies welcome the idea of lowering overall stretch costs.
We recommend too try a sample if you have never tried an equivalent
hand stretch wrap. This will allow you to make an accurate
assessment of the film and if it is right for your needs.
Pre-Stretched Hand Stretch Film (3 inch Core)
Pre stretched hand stretch film is a great option to consider.
Pre-stretched film is a standard 80 gauge stretch film stretched to
within 10% of its maximum stretch potential. This enables less
energy exertion when applying the wrap. Instead of pulling hard to
reach maximum stretch potential, only a tenth of the energy is
required to apply the film.
Some drawbacks of pre-stretched film includes decrease in cling,
and decrease in ability to tightly pull product boxes on loads
together. Because the film is already within 10% of its maximum
stretch potential, you cannot wrap the film to tight.
We recommend pre-stretched hand stretch wrap for lighter loads, or loads that will not be experiencing high
Colored Hand Stretch Film (3 inch Core)
Colored hand pallet wrap comes in a variety of colors to help color
code or easily identify pallet loads. Our color tinted stretch wrap
is a tinted film that can be seen through. We also offer opaque
stretch wrap in white and black that cannot be seen through after a
couple of revolutions around the load. Great for protection and
concealment of loads.
