Stretch tape secures loads that need ventilation while reducing material cost, waste
This video taken at Pack Expo shows the redesigned 3M ST1000 tape load containment system securing a pallet load of ventilated produce boxes.
A 3M engineer succinctly describes ST1000 key features, including 650%
stretch, 80% less waste compared to other stretch wraps, secures 4,400
pound loads, and wraps at 15 RPM. The ST1000 is most often used with cartons with holes in such applications as cool to cool for fresh produce, hot to ambient, cool to frozen, sterilization/fumigation, in-house banding for storage racking and safe movement, and by companies with waste reduction goals that must be met.
