Cast vs. Blown - What is the difference?
Cast Stretch Wrap Film
- Generally less expensive than blown stretch film.
- Perfectly clear, makes reading and scanning in warehouse light easy.
- Very quiet when unwound from the stretch roll.
- Offers two sided cling that allows the wrap to stay securely wrapped.
- Disadvantage - Two sided cling causes pallets that are touching to stick together, making it difficult to unload trucks or containers and causing the film to tear on pallets that are moving in transit.
- Disadvantage - Does not offer the load/holding power blown stretch film offers.
- Disadvantage - Less memory and tear resistance than blown stretch film.
Blown Stretch Wrap Film
- Offers higher load and stretch capacity.
- A higher degree of memory once stretched allowing loads to stay better secured.
- A higher tear resistance is an advantage when securing loads with sharp edges.
- One sided cling, great for higher load retention, pallets don't stick together.
- Disadvantage - Higher cost due to manufacturing process.
- Disadvantage - Poor clarity can make reading and scanning harder,
- Disadvantage - Noisy when unwound from rolls.
