Save with Down-Gauging of Stretch Wrap

The reduction of damages during the transit is only achievable with a correct packaging system and the Stretch Wrap packaging is of undeniable importance when it comes to manufacturers, packaging, and shipping companies. The lightweight yet durable Shrink Wrap offers many benefits but falls short in sustainability. After all, like most other petroleum-based products the Stretch Wrap contains the same adverse effects on the environment. Down-Gauging is a product of the ever-increasing awareness on limiting the use of products harmful to the environment.

Stretch Wrap Down Gauging Benefits

Down-Gauging of Stretch Wraps refers to using a thinner and lighter version of the wrapping products. The resilience of today’s Stretch Wrap most often will compensate for using the lower gauge wraps while reducing the negative effects on the environment.

The Down-Gauging also makes great economic sense with lowering the cost when high gauge stretch wrap is replaced with a lower gauge. It is important to note that the down gauging would only work if the use of the light film would not compromise the integrity of the packages or need for using too many layers of the shrink wrap to defeat the downgauging purpose. This is called Load Containment, which is the focal point for all manufacturers and shippers alike. Average Down Gauging results in cutting the material costs by 20% to 25% while decreasing the adverse environmental effects.
