It is unifying — assembling products in one unit – usually on a pallet — which makes packaging and shipping efficient and cost effective. Unitization of products reduces handling costs and saves time. Ensures the distribution process is safer and more efficient, while protecting products from damage and theft. The application of elastic film is one of the most common and safest methods to achieve this.
The goal of choosing the best stretch film is to find one that suits the specific needs of your business without paying for unnecessary properties. For example, loads that spend most of their days in a storage container or shipping, no need film with UV protection. On the other hand, loads with a lightweight film that do not fit perfectly in the corners of the pallet are subjected to film loads and perforated displacement. But if you have never used stretch film before or are not satisfied with the movie you use, how do you know that one is correct? Next, 6 considerations should choose the best elastic film for the job.
Primary cost comparisons: Price / lb Vs. Price / ft. Vs. prices / fees
When you talk with a stretch film seller, trying to figure out how your product compares with the product that the consumer is currently using can be confusing. All the film is sold by the pound. Traditional movies usually have higher meters are actually cheaper per pound because they use cheaper plastic resins to make the film. Performance films are more expensive because they are made with better quality resins and can overlap. This is a more expensive manufacturing process. Performance films usually end up costing less in general because the film’s light weight makes the highest price per pound
However, what really matters to the consumer is how much the movie foot. More importantly that cost is the cost per foot wrapped load. The argument in favor of new high performance films is that although they are expensive to make (cost per pound) that are much lighter in size and therefore lighter. For example, a high performance film designed to replace a traditional 80 gauge film could be 20% more expensive to manufacture, but may require 50% less film to support the load that functions as a material is 50% thick. The end result in this example is that the user costs saves 30% by changing the thinner film film.
