Customers using the automatic stretch tape wrapper get an extra 15% of stretch and those using the semi automatic receive nearly 10% more from stretch tape rolls.
The increasingly widespread use of stretch tape around Australia has provided Australian industry with the answer long sought for in the challenge to find a more efficient and less wasteful method of pallet wrapping than conventional stretch film.
General packaging is now adopting stretch tape for pallet containment along with those industries that have welcomed the special advantages conferred by stretch tape. These include customers who chill product and those who wrap hot goods that benefit from the ventilation allowed by stretch tape. The tape prevents the need for double handling and double wrapping pallets and also provides energy savings by decreasing the time spent to chill the pallet.
Other users to benefit from stretch tape include customers receiving pallets into automated handling systems because tape doesn't create plastic dags and overhang like stretch film.
Additionally all users of stretch tape benefit from the extraordinary reduction in waste plastic versus stretch film. There is a reduction at source of waste volume by up to 95% and in excess of 70% by weight. These reductions assist many companies in satisfying their National Packaging Covenant commitments
