The solution to wrap up the issue

As with all our packaging requirement and improvement reviews our Representatives gather the information before hand to identify potential products that can improve specific areas, procedures and help to reach ambitions and goals.

For this client our Nano pallet wrap seemed to tick all the right boxes.

Nano film is a multi-layer film that is thin but very strong. Power pre-stretch pallet wrappers are used to apply the film, and this is because the film is so high performing. By using Nano film your cost to wrap each pallet is significantly less as is the amount of film used, which in turn also reduces your plastic waste and carbon footprint, achieved while having no negative impact on the pallet stability and even securing it better.

The tables show the results from the trial

 

MPW12IF 10 clear machine film provides an excellent saving in terms of weight of film used and actual film costs, minimal amendment was required to the machine, just slight adjustment to the tension. As the product as 55-layer Nano Technology, film, it reduces the amount of static generated and gives a high clarity result.

We saved this business £6,080.00 in cost, 2150KG weight saving and 12,900 CO2 carbon footprint saving.
