Film can be used with conventional stretch film equipment so it is easy to add to existing operations. Due to its superior strength only a simple adjustment on the tensioning setting is needed company says. Extra strength reduces the wraps needed for an application. For many palletizing applications a 1.0 mil (25 micron) Eco Wrap™ can replace the traditional 1.6 mil (40 micron) palletizing film to reduce the amount of material needed company says.
