Stretch wrap film

Stretch wrap or stretch film is a highly stretchable plastic film that is wrapped around items. The elastic recovery keeps the items tightly bound. In contrast, shrink wrap is applied loosely around an item and shrinks tightly with heat.It is frequently used to unitize pallet loads but also may be used for bundling smaller items.Types of stretch film include bundling stretch film, hand stretch film, extended core stretch film, machine stretch film and static dissipative film.The most common stretch wrap material is linear low-density polyethylene or LLDPE, which is produced by copolymerization of ethylene with alpha-olefins, the most common of which are butene, hexene and octene. The use of higher alpha-olefins (hexene or octene) gives rise to enhanced stretch film characteristics, particularly in respect of elongation at break and puncture resistance.
       Other types of polyethylene and PVC can also be used. Many films have about 500% stretch at break but are only stretched to about 100 – 300% in use. Once stretched, the elastic recovery is used to keep the load tight.There are two methods of producing stretch wrap. 1) Blown: the resin is melted and blown out, it is air-cooled. This is a slower process but provides for higher quality in all the areas listed below. The cost of production is also higher due to the quantity that can be produced per hour. 2) Cast: the film is passed over cooling rollers. This makes the cooling process quick. The quality is not as good as blown but more can be produced in an hour with lower costs.Other properties such as break strength, cling, clarity, tear resistance, static discharge, etc. are also important.

Plastic Embossed Film

Plastic film is a thin continuous polymeric material. Thicker plastic material is often called a “sheet”. These thin plastic membranes are used to separate areas or volumes, to hold items, to act as barriers, or as printable surfaces.Plastic films are used in a wide variety of applications. These include: packaging, plastic bags, labels, building construction, landscaping, electrical fabrication, photographic film, film stock for movies, video tape, etc.Plastic films are typically formed into rolls by roll slitting. Often additional coating or printing operations are also used. Films can be modified by physical vapor deposition to make metallised films. Films can be subjected to corona treatment or can have release agents applied as needed.
Plastic films are usually thermoplastics and are formed by melting for forming the film.
  • Cast – Plastics extrusion can cast film which is cooled or quenched then wound up on a roll.
  • Extruded film can be stretched, thinned, or oriented in one or two directions. Blown or tubular process forces air into an extruded ring to expand the film. Flat tenter lines stretch the extruded film before annealing.
  • Calender rolls can be used to form film from hot polymers
  • Solution deposition is another film forming process.
  • Skiving is used to scrape off a film from a solid core (sometimes used to make PTFE thread seal tape)
  • Coextrusion involves extruding two or more layers of dissimilar polymers into a single film
  • Lamination combines two or more films (or other materials) into a sandwich
  • Extrusion coating is used to form a film onto another film or substrate

Poly embossed film in Kerala

Conventionally, a packaging material using a PVA film has been widely used as a material for containing agricultural chemicals, medicines, dyes, detergents, fertilizers, cosmetics, sanitary products and the like. This packaging material is used for, for example, obtaining a solution of what is included in the container utilizing the water solubility of PVA, by directly casting the container into an aqueous medium to allow disintegration, dispersion or dissolution of the container, for the disposal of the packaging material opened when in use, by dumping the packaging material into water as it is, and for other purposes. However, because the PVA film absorbs moisture, the surface sometimes becomes sticky and tends to show blocking of film due to the adhesive property of the film in high humidity.
To prevent the blocking property, films are generally embossed. For example, an embossed water soluble film has been proposed, which has a thickness of a concave part of 15-25 μm, and a tensile strength of the film of 2.5-4.5 kg/mm(JP-A-7-290567).
While the above-mentioned film shows improved dispersibility and dissolution in water, mechanical strength and the like, it is otherwise with regard to resistance to blocking, appearance to impart an impression of high quality, resistance to pinholes and the like and these aspects have not been considered sufficiently.

Ldpe Semiembossed Film

Film Embossing Process

Film embossing is a mechanical process in which a flat film is transformed into an embossed product. During the process, thermal and stress fields are applied to the polymer, causing changes in the microstructure and physical dimensions of the material. The engineering analysis of the process requires the study of various aspects relating to the characterization of the microstructure before and after embossing, A variety of techniques were employed to characterize the properties and microstructure of the embossed film in relation to crystallinity, orientation, mechanical properties, and dimensions of the embossed films. The thermal treatment of the polymer film was shown to be the most significant factor in the process. By controlling the thermal treatment of the film, it is possible to manipulate the properties and dimensions of the embossed film. The important aspects: influencing thermal treatment include the radiation heater temperature, preheat roll temperature, line velocity, and film thickness. The initial film orientation and embossing pressure have a minor effect on the final properties of the embossed film. The main effect of the embossing pressure is on the bulk thickness of the embossed film.

Poly shrink film

Poly shrink film, is a material made up of polymer plastic film. When heat is applied, it shrinks tightly over whatever it is covering.  Heat can be applied with a hand held heat gun (electric or gas) or the product and film can pass through a heat tunnel on a conveyor.
A shrink film can be made to shrink in one direction (unidirectional or mono-directional) or in both directions (bidirectional). Films are stretched when they are warm to orient the molecules from their initial random pattern. Cooling the film sets the film's characteristics until it is reheated. This causes it to shrink back toward its initial dimensions.
Shrink wrap can be used to wrap buildings. It can wrap roofs after hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes and other disasters. Shrink wrap can be used for environmental containments to facilitate safe removal of asbestos, lead and other hazards.
Advantages of poly shrink film are Economical Packing, Tamper evident, Prolonging Shelf Life, Neat and Presentable with Sales Appeal, Total Protection –Water Proof, Protection against Rain, Dust, Moisture, Humidity etc., it should be Usage of Shrink Machine/Shrink gun Poly.

 Packaging is the technology of enclosing or protecting products for distribution, storage, sale, and use. It also refers to the process of design, evaluation, and production of packages. Packaging contains, protects, preserves, transports, informs, and sells. It is a barrier from oxygeb, water vapour, dust, etc. Packages can have features that add convenience in distribution, handling, stacking, display, sale, opening, reclosing, use, dispensing, reuse, recycling, and ease of disposal.  Keeping the contents clean, fresh, sterile and safe for the intended shelf life is a primary function.

 Package development involves considerations for sustainability, environmental responsibility, and applicable environmental and recycling regulations. It may involve a life cycle assesment which considers the material and energy inputs and outputs to the package, the packaged product (contents), the packaging process, the logistics system,waste management, etc. It is necessary to know the relevant regulatory requirements for point of manufacture, sale, and use. The traditional “three R’s” of reduce, reuse, and recycle are part of waste hierarchy which may be considered in product and package development.
