The reason why your stretch film is ripping

Stretch Film or Pallet Wrap

But nothing can be more frustrating than trying to wrap your pallet or product to ship and your stretch film keeps breaking.

We’re going to help you figure out why so you can get back to shipping as soon as possible.

Next check to see if there’s a little nick in your roll.

If you happen to drop the roll and there’s a nick right there, every time you hit that nick, it’s going to rip. So what you’re going to want to do is unwrap your stretch film until you get past that nick and you can start using it again.

First, looking at is whether you’re using the suitable stretch film.
All stretch films are very durable, but if you’re wrapping very heavy products, you might want to look at something like a 80 gauge or 120 gauge.
It might cost you a little more per case, but you’ll use less per shipment and you might end up saving some money in the long run.

If your shipment has any sharp edges

The last thing you can look at is if your shipment has any sharp edges, that includes the corners of boxes and pallets. But any uneven shipments or unboxed products that have sharp edges.

You’re going to want to look at that because as durable as stretch film is it can still poke. And once it pokes is going to rip. If you have something like that, you might want to consider looking at blown film, which is more puncture resistant than the cast film.
