Flush core stretch wrap of plastic wrap is a strong film of plastic that can be stretched easily around items. It is used frequently to wrap pallets during storage and transport, so the contents are secure on the pallet. The wrap’s elastic recovery allows the items to be tightly bound and stabilized. Flush core stretch wrap can be used for manual wrapping of items and pallets. The core is flush to the edge of the wrap, so there aren’t any handles to hold like an extended core stretch wrap would have.
Flush core stretch wrap is very durable, so you can usually stretch it to twice its length. Flush core stretch wrap rolls are versatile enough to be used on dispensers but can be used by hand as well. They are used to secure items, which can minimize costs associated with waste. Many companies wrap their pallets with plastic wrap or stretch wrap because the items are more secure. Therefore, when the pallets are moved around the loading dock before being loaded on the truck, the contents are secure and won’t fall off causing waste. Additionally, while the pallets are in transit, it keeps the contents from shifting on the pallet, which can lead to breakage or loss.
Stretch wrap is made in two main ways, which include being blown or cast. Cast stretch wrap is extremely clear and has tensile strength. Blown stretch wrap is suitable for colder environments and is highly puncture resistant. Choosing which type is dependent on how the wrap will be used. For wholesalers looking to send products in a refrigerated truck, the blown stretch wrap method should be used. Blown wrap usually has a high tack, which is another option to consider when determining which method to use. For displays or other tasks where clarity is important, the cast method should be used.
Flush core stretch wrap is used in a wide range of tasks and is vital to businesses because it allows them to ensure that the items wrapped are secure. This can lead to less waste, as the pallets are moved throughout the warehouse. However, it can also cut down on dust and dirt from getting on the contents and can be somewhat waterproof depending on how well the stretch wrap covers the contents. Because it is made of a stretchable plastic, it is waterproof when securely wrapped.
