The equipment used as well as the size, weight, and structure of the pallet to be packed have the biggest impact on selection of an automatic film. Automatic films are classified by thickness, production technology, stretch potential, and the whole of the mechanical properties.

Technical data

Film type Application Stretch Thickness
Standard film Used in equipment without film stretching as an available option. Stretching on account of reduced width. Able to withstand sharp corners. Recommended for using in case of complex and heavy pallets with particularly sharp corners. Up to 150% 13-30 my
Rigid films Used only in equipment without film stretching as an available option. These films are rigid with a limited stretching potential as compared to the standard film. A very wide range of application potential, especially suitable for fully automatic packing lines without film stretching as an available option. Designed as a replacement for the standard film in order to provide better stability for pallets and reduce film usage. 40-100% 7-15 my
Films with a potential for stretching Used in production lines or semi-automatic equipment with a fixed or adjustable film stretching mechanism. This type of film gets 2-3 times thinner when stretched, however, the products stacked on the pallet are held in a more stable manner as compared to films which cannot be stretched. 200-300% 12-30 my
Film with a potential for stretching 300+ These films can withstand particularly sharp corners and ensure the best stability of pallets. Used in high-speed production lines or semi-automatic equipment with a fixed or adjustable film stretching mechanism. Using thinner films of this type instead of thicker films with stretching potential of 300 percent is an available option. 300+% 12-30 my
