ABL's Guide To Choosing The Correct Palletwrap!

Confused On Which Palletwrap You should Be Using?

Choosing The Correct Palletwrap Is Critical!

Choosing the right type of palletwrap (also commonly known as shrink film / cling wrap) for your application is CRITICAL.
When choosing your palletwrap there are a number of important factors to consider:
  • The products being wrapped
  • The monetary Budget
  • Storage situation and,
  • Transport of finished goods 
There are two main types of palletwrap that exist;
  • Traditional Australian Made 'Tacky' Blown Palletwrap Film
  • New Technology Imported 'Clear' Palletwrap. 

Advantages Of Blown Film

  • Great Load Strength and Puncture Resistance - Ideal for wrapping sharp or heavy items
  • Tacky on One Side - Preferred during transport of some goods to help stabilise pallets
  • High Degree of Memory - Keeps wrapped products in place for longer
  • Australian Manufactured Product - Offers consistent quality
  • Typical Industries - Engineering, stone / tiling, metal products

Advantages Of Cast Film

  • Great Clarity - Ideal for scanning palletised products
  • Ergonomic - Rolls are lighter which makes handling easier
  • Cost Efficient - Cheaper per metre which helps save money
  • Quiet - No tacky side which leads to quieter wrapping. Great for us on palletwrap machines
  • Typical Uses - Food and beverage products, chilled goods, light / medium general distribution, machine wrappers

Other Considerations

  • Black Film (Blown Cast) - Ideal for product security and reduces the chance of pilferage
  • Machine Film (Blown Cast) - If you're wrapping 12+ pallets per day then it is recommended to consider a machine for wrapping. 
  • This saves on labour and wrap costs, reduces OH&S risks and improves consistency of wrapped pallets.
