Stretch Film

 

Stretch wrap is an absolute necessity to secure your pallet shipments. Cast or blown stretch wrap is available. The cast stretch film is quieter and less expensive but is mainly used for uniform loads. Cast or blown can be used with a hand dispenser or a machine. Available additives are anti-static, VCI(vapor corrosive inhibitor for rust prevention), UVI(Ultraviolet inhibitors for long exposure to sunlight), or color tints for identification. Also, printing is available with notations such as “DO NOT BREAK DOWN PALLET”, “DO NOT DOUBLE STACK”, or “FRAGILE”.

 

**Recommended Gauge Sizes For Uniform Loads**

60 Gauge – Up to 1,600 lbs
70 Gauge – Up to 2,000 lbs
80 Gauge – Up to 2,500 lbs Industrial
90 Gauge – Up to 3,000 lbs Heavy Duty
100 Gauge – Up to 3,500 lbs Super Heavy Duty

Strapping Material

 

Polyester

Polyester strapping is designed for medium to heavy-duty palletizing and unitizing applications.  Polyester strapping can either be applied by hand tools or by power strapping equipment.


Steel

Steel strapping is manufactured to meet rigid quality specifications and close tolerances.  It is ideal for all general applications and is available in a number of different widths and gauges.


Polypropylene

Polypropylene is less expensive and easier to use than steel strapping for bundling items, sealing oversized cartons and securing palletized loads.  Use open seals with manual tensioner.


Manual Tools

Manual hand tools are the most basic form of strap application equipment.  They are perfect for operations that do not have access to power sources or do not require the speed of powered hand tools.

Padding

 

Bubble Cushioning

Air bubble cushioning offers a flexible, lightweight solution for protecting your products against abrasion and the effects of vibration. It’s made of low-density, non-toxic polyethylene with less than 5% deflation. We carry utility and premium grades; standard and anti-static rolls; adhesive, co-adhesive and laminate anti-static shielding; and sealable pouches perforated every 12 inches.


 


Polyethylene(PE) Foam

Its mostly used for cushioning and positioning in material handling racks and to provide efficient cushioning foe medium to heavy weight items. Due to a variety of fabrication techniques, Total Source Packaging can provide and shape that you might require.
