Pallet wrap is that versatile plastic that is used to cover items that are placed on a wooden pallet. This strong plastic is fantastic for keeping products safe while they are being transported, but there is a way that the plastic wrap can be strengthened. In this article, we are going to share some tips with you for how you can get the most out of your product.
All sorts of products benefit from the safety provided by plastic pallet wrap. Products that are being transported all over the world are often securely packed onto a pallet before plastic sheeting is either manually or automatically wrapped over it. This method allows packing companies to stack the products high without worrying about their precious cargo going adrift. Normally the products that are being transported will already be packed in boxes, but that is no guarantee that the products are going to be kept safe during their journey. This is where plastic wrap has really come in handy, and this is also where the wrapping has gone to the next level.

How to Make Stretch Film Stronger
One of the most popular ways to make your plastic extra strong is to apply some heat to it. Often when loose goods are being transported, the best way to make sure that they are properly secure is to heat the stretch film around it. Heat stretch film will also securely bind the wrap to the pallet itself ensuring that the items on the pallet get that extra security. The stretch film you will need in order to be able to do this will either be the type that is available on a roll or it will come in the form of a bag. The wrap available on a roll is usually the better option as it has more value for money. The wrap will be more than enough for one pallet, making it work out a whole lot cheaper.
If you are looking to heat the wrap then you will need to make sure that the wrap you are working with can be heated. And if you can manually wrap the pallet tight enough than there won’t be a need to apply heat. Trunel Bag is the leading stretch film manufacturers in Gauteng offering the best stretch film prices.
Getting the most out of Pallet Wrap
At Trunel Bags, we offer our clients pallet wrap on a roll. This type of wrap is available in large quantities, making it easier for clients to wrap numerous pallets while saving money. This type of pallet wrap is applied manually so you have the opportunity to put as many layers as you feel are necessary to secure the pallets.
When starting the wrapping it is best to take the slow approach. This will prevent the wrap from tearing or stretching. Should tears or stretches appear in the plastic, the wrap will be weakened, something you definitely don’t want. As the person doing the wrapping you should start the wrapping at the bottom and work your way up to the top. Only wrap in one direction, this will help you make sure that you don’t miss any area. To make sure that the base of the pallet is properly secured you can wrap the pallet at least 4 or 5 times, paying extra attention to the corners.
Once you have wrapped up the entire pallet you can start thinking about applying heat, should the items need that extra bit of security. If you have wrapped the pallet securely, heat won’t necessarily be needed.
