We recently posted technical data for our micron stretch film. We are very happy to offer a micron stretch film that is affordable yet still durable. Micron stretch film does not have the same amount of stretch that a true gauge stretch film has, but offers great strength. It is considered a stiffer film then a true gauge film, but can offer many benefits, the best being price.
This post will focus on technical data for our hybrid stretch film. We commonly recommend hybrid stretch film to companies already using a lighter gauge film. Hybrid is stiffer than micron and does not offer much stretch. It is a thinner lighter film that is ideal in light weight wrapping applications.
Hybrid stretch is mixed using a different formula then a standard gauge film. This formula allows stretch rolls to weigh less. Less weight allows less shipping charges and less energy when applying hand stretch film.
Below is the Technical data.
