What are the Advantages of Opaque, Clear, and UV-Protected Stretch Film?

Toronto Stretch Wrap and Danshar Polybag and Resin Inc. offer an assortment of stretch films which include, opaque, clear and UV protected ones. Each of these stretch films have different advantages and can be used for different purposes.For instance, opaque stretch film:

  • conceals products, providing added protection from possible theft.
  • is beneficial for colour coding products.
  • prevents product damage from dust, moisture and rain.
  • protects products from harmful UV Rays.*
  • is a visually-eye catching and bold backdrop for printing messages and logos on the film.
  • outlasts clear stretch film when stored outdoors.

Clear stretch film:

  • makes it easy to scan product identification tags, like barcodes or RFID.
  • enables products to be readily displayed on the showroom floor without the worry of dust buildup or damage to the merchandise.
  • improves inventory control by enabling visual inspections of products.
  • protects products from harmful UV Rays.*
  • is tamper resistance.  Due to the added protection of the stretch wrap, packages are less likely to be intentionally sabotaged.

UV stretch film:

  • protects and extends the life of products that are stored outdoors in the sun. If your shipments will be stored outdoors in direct sunlight for more than 60 days, then we recommend choosing UV stretch film.

*Photo degradation could occur to stretch wrap as a result of being stored outside for a prolonged period of time. The additive, UVI (Ultra Violet Inhibitor) could be added to opaque and clear stretch film in order to increase the stretch film's durability and inhibit photo degradation.
