Machine Stretch Film

Performance Machine Stretch Films are available from stock.

Cast Machine Stretch Film is made from polyethylene and is the main type of machine film used in the UK. This film offers excellent load retention, good tear strength, offers good clarity, and gives good puncture resistance.

Cast machine film is available in for use with two types of machine

Standard Machines

These machines stretch the film by using a brake to apply tension to the core of the film which in turn stretches the film onto the load as the pallet turns on the turntable of the machine. - Order standard film for these machines

Power Pre-stretch Machines

These machines use an extra powered roller to stretch the film before applying to the pallet, this therefore gives excellent load retention using less film and reducing cost to wrap each pallet. The machines require the use of a power pre-stretch film which is a higher quality film. These films have the ability to stretch by 200 - 250%, and 300% depending on the machine it is used on and the application. - Order power pre-stretch film (PPS) for these machines

A basic guide would be: Higher quality films are able to be stretched further and therefore the smaller amount of film required to secure the load. The individual application does however have an influence which film to use.
