What May Cause Stretch Film Packaging Failure

May. 18, 2022

For the pallet packaging machine business, stretch film is one of the most typical products used to hold items together and protect them throughout the shipping and storage space. SMARTWASP sells stretch film, and there are many benefits to covering your products with stretch film.

Stretch film can cause a host of troubles due to human error, improper setup by the manufacturer, and other failures by different resources. In the following article, we'll explore some of the most common mistakes made when using stretch film.

Incorrect Sizing

Stretch films come in a variety of sizes for all types of applications and products. If you use the wrong stretch film to wrap your items, you can lose wrapping paper, as well as time and money, in addition to potentially causing incorrect loading control. If you are not sure which size stretch film you must utilize to wrap your pallets, call SMARTWASP for advice.

What May Cause Stretch Film Packaging Failure


When a tear occurs, it indicates that the safety, lot control and security of your product packaging pallets have actually been compromised. Tears can occur due to a variety of factors. To avoid tears, it is recommended that you utilize an automatic or semi-automatic stretch wrapper with proper setup and proper load control beforehand.

After analyzing your equipment, dispensers, labor and operators in the daily packaging process, your representative should have the ability to recommend how to optimize your product and equipment to reduce and/or eliminate tears.

Incorrect Density

Just as using the wrong stretch film can lead to a host of problems, so can using the wrong thickness (or gauge) of stretch film. Using stretch film that is too thin for your product can lead to constant tearing, resulting in wasted material, money and time.

If you use stretch film that is too thick and the product doesn't need that gauge, you will also lose out.
