Protecting Pallets with Improved Next Generation Stretch Hooder

When it comes to wrapping and protecting pallets and shipments, the stretch hooder technique has become a favorite amongst all types of manufacturers and suppliers. Utilizing a stretch hooder machine, highly specialized stretch films are stretched over and around pallet loads providing five-sided total external protection as well as the added benefit of load stability. Additional benefits include streamlined production processes, as well as the potential for significant savings on packaging costs.

Despite the superior performance of stretch hooder when compared to a more traditional packaging technique such as pallet wrapping, many of the standard stretch hooder films you can find on the market today have some common performance issues, including tiger striping or poor puncture strength.
