Stretch film/stretch wrap is a highly stretchable plastic film that is wrapped around items to secure them to each other, especially a pallet of corrugated boxes ready to be shipped. The elastic recovery keeps the items tightly bound. In contrast, shrink wrap is a different type of film offered by IPG that is applied loosely around an item and shrinks tightly with heat.  Stretch film is no different than many of the other items we provide, our goal is that to get you the right product for your application.  Our packaging specialist can do a complimentary, on-site assessment and cost analysis. We’ll provide the best film options based on your unique needs.
