Guaranteed Irish company Wraptite Packaging is distributing a new stretchable film product, which it says reduces packaging waste and cost by 35% for Irish distribution companies.
The 10-micron stretchable film is an alternative to the traditional favourite 17-micron wrap and strongly competes with the newer pre-stretch films currently on the market, according to the company.
The 35pc reduction in weight of the new 10 micron film means that considerably less raw material is used to manufacture the product.
Wraptite Packaging sales director Paul Smith said: “For many years we have manufactured and distributed both pre-stretch and standard pallet wrapping products.
“A proportion of our customers prefer to use our standard stretch films. There has been a recent trend among these customers for a lighter weight standard film. We recognised this trend and saw a gap in the market.”
Wraptite’s clients are food and drink multinationals, logistic companies and distributors of high volume stock to both domestic and international markets.
Although its core business is the manufacture, production and distribution of pallet wrap from its purpose-built facility in Blanchardstown, the company has expanded into photo-packaging materials, shrink film, tapes and edge boards.
It has also teamed up with an Italian manufacturer to provide machines that will run pre-stretched film
