Micron Stretch Film Technical Data

We will be writing several posts about technical data for the stretch film we offer. Our manufacturer puts their stretch film through a variety of tests to offer specific data about their film. The data is based upon ASTM Testing Method. Details of the ASTM testing method can be found here.

Micron hand stretch film is a high quality linear low-density polyethylene stretch wrap with cling on both sides. This three-layer, co-extruded film uses a standard 3” core and is available in a variety of widths. As a high performance stretch wrap, this film is designed to securely unitize irregularly shaped and difficult-to-wrap loads.

This is a data sheet detailing the micron hand stretch film we offer.

The definitions for all the specified tests in this data sheet can be viewed at some of our previous blog posts. Click on the link for the testing method you are inquiring about: what is tear strength and what is tensile strength.  Our next few posts will be listing the technical data of all the stretch films we offer.
