What is Stretch Film?

Stretch film is a plastic film used to protect pallets and packages, it’s made from made from Linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE). It’s most commonly used to hold products together when in storage or transit.

Benefits of stretch film

  • Discourages thieves as items are thickly wrapped and difficult to tamper with
  • Secures pallets to prevent stock loss
  • Prevents damage from rain, dust and humidity

Two Types of Stretch Film


Blown stretch wrap is manufactured by melting plastic which is then cooled via blown air. This process causes the stretch film to be extremely durable when compared to cast film. Blown film is known to unwind loudly but is a more resilient product when securing loads.

  • Use blown film when packaging items with sharp corners.
  • Blown film has a high degree of memory when securing loads.


Cast film is created by melting plastic which is them cooled on a chill roll where it solidifies. Cast film has high tear resistance and unwinds quietly and clings better than blown film.

  • Cast film clings on both sides.
  • Cast film has increased clarity.
