The SmartFlex® 20 µm stretch hood film enables significant material savings. With this high-performance and super thin film, Bischof + Klein intends to conquer the market for securing lightweight, mixed products on pallets.
Conventional stretch hood films have a standard thickness of approx. 100 µm and are therefore economically unattractive for securing goods on pallets in certain market segments. With a significantly reduced wall thickness of 20 µm, SmartFlex® radically shifts the cost effectiveness calculation in the favour of stretch hood films and enables material savings of up to 39 percent in comparison with stretch wrapping films. The fundamentally higher performance of stretch hood film lines in comparison with stretch wrapping lines is further increased by SmartFlex® 20 µm, as the number of reel changes is reduced. Loads can be secured on 2,500 pallets with one reel.
In contrast to stretch wrapping technology, loads secured on pallets using hoods are per se protected on all sides and at the top from dust and moisture. The risk of theft is also successfully averted. Tampering with the film hood is immediately noticed.
