Load Protection & Pallet Wrapping
Securing your load the right way
Lumicene Supertough® – the ideal booster for Stretch wrap and stretch hood
The major challenge for pallet wrap solutions is to ensure load security during manipulation, transport and warehousing in order to reduce goods waste while being pushed to the limit to reduce packaging (downgauging – improved stretching).
Reducing the environmental impact by using less material while maintaining the same performance (puncture force, retention force, ultimate stretch, …) or even improve it is a “must” in a context where plastics and their sustainability are more frequently demanded. Thanks to Lumicene® and Lumicene Supertough®, Total is able to help you do just that.
Total's range of EVA and Lumicene® offers you the ideal products to produce the correct stretch hood film to ensure the safe transport of your pallet. A 15% improvement in holding force can be obtained with a 5 layer stretch hood recipe including Lumicene Supertough® in the core layer; this opens up possibilities for improved packaging performance and/or reducing your packaging costs.
Total’s range of Lumicene® is especially designed for thin gauge stretch wrap produced at high throughputs with low extrusion pressure. Lumicene® M1835 offers strong stretching and mechanical properties, whereas Lumicene® M2735 is often used as non cling layer .
Lumicene Supertough® is used to produce stretch wrap film that provides outstanding strength and high toughness at low stretch ratios both for industrial and manual stretch applications.
Super Thin, Super Strong, Super Tough!
