The Simple Science of Stretch Film

Many factors must be considered when shipping a product, but essentially it boils down to this: find the least amount of packaging materials to provide the most protection possible for the least amount of cost. While this seems just like a math problem, it takes science to come up with the right solution.

Introducing Tarheel Paper Company’s newest elements in packaging: Titanium, Zirconium, & Cobalt Stretch Films.

If you’re trying to reduce your costs per load on machine stretch film, the Titanium and Zirconium films are both terrific options. The Titanium Film is an 80ga EQ, while the Zirconium Film is a 70ga EQ.  Both are high performance single sided cling films that exhibit the same brute strength as the standard 80 gauge & 70 gauge films, but require less film per load, which then provides a lower cost per load that you’re looking for.

If you’re wrapping pallets by hand, our Cobalt film is the way to go. It’s a 16” x 1500’ roll of high performance film that exhibits the following qualities:

~ Lightweight:  Core extensions and ultra-light weight rolls make Cobalt film easy to handle and reduce wrapper fatigue. This means anyone in your warehouse should be able to handle it, so you don’t have to save the job of pallet wrapping for Thor the body builder.

~ Tear-Resistant: Cobalt film has reinforced edges to provide unrivaled load-holding force and tear resistance.

~ Brute Strength: Cobalt film’s aggressive cling package is strong enough for A, B & many C loads. Don’t let its light weight fool you. Cobalt film is engineered to outperform all competitive hand films regardless of gauge

The Titanium, Zirconium, and Cobalt stretch films are formulated using proprietary resin blending and extrusion techniques to be light as a feather, yet tough as steel when securing your product. Titanium, Zirconium and Cobalt stretch films provide the optimal balance of cost effectiveness and high performance.
