New in our range of product: CertiStretch Nano Eco film with 30% PCR, 250% pre-stretch and only 17 microns thick!

Wrapping film is an essential tool in the world of transport and storage. It is used to firmly enclose goods and protect them against dust, damp and damage during transport. Certis Benelux is the first in Europe to offer a wrapping film with 30% PCR and 250% pre-stretch that is only 17 microns thick. This advanced packaging solution combines efficiency and sustainability in such a way that it exceeds the expectations of both our clients and consumers alike.

What is PCR in wrapping film?

PCR stands for Post-Consumer Recycled material, which means that part of the raw materials to produce the wrapping film comes from recycled materials that after consumer use have been collected and processed. The use of PCR in wrapping film has considerable benefits for the environment since it reduces the demand for new plastic and helps to reduce the amount of plastic waste in the environment.

With PCR making up 30% of the composition of our new wrapping film, CertiStretch Nano Eco film is an important step towards a more circular and sustainable packaging industry. We are reducing our ecological footprint and contributing to the reduction of plastic pollution.

Improved efficiency thanks to 250% pre-stretch

Another groundbreaking property of this innovative wrapping film is the incredible 250% pre-stretch capacity. This means that the film can be stretched to two and a half times its original length before being applied to the goods to be packaged. This pre-stretch capacity has a number of important advantages:

Reduced consumption of materials: Since less film is needed to package goods, less plastic is used which increases the sustainability and cost-efficiency of the packaging.
Stronger protection: The pre-stretch capacity ensure that the shipment is more firmly enclosed which improves the stability during transport and reduces damage to the goods.
Time savings: Less film and fewer actions to package the load means the packaging process is faster. This increases productivity.

17 microns: thin but durable

The thickness of wrapping film is measured in microns (one thousandth of a millimetre), and this CertiStretch Nano Eco wrapping film is just 17 microns thick. Despite being so thin, the film is surprisingly durable. This is thanks to advanced production techniques and materials that were designed to offer both strength and flexibility.

The fact that the film is so thin helps make it environmentally friendly since less material is used. This results in less waste and a lower impact on the environment.

Advantages for our clients and consumers

This new wrapping film with 30% PCR and 250% pre-stretch that is only 17 microns thick offers many advantages for users and consumers alike. Our clients benefit from the sustainability, efficiency and cost savings of this innovation.

Hot melt glue: The versatile solution for all kinds of uses

In the world of glues and adhesives, hot melt is a term that is increasingly present. Hot melt glue is a powerful and versatile adhesive that is used in numerous industries and applications. In this blog we will look more closely at hot melt glue, at what it is, how it works and why it is so popular.

What is hot melt glue?

Hot melt glue is a thermoplastic adhesive that is applied in liquid form and then hardens when it cools down. It is made of polymers that melt when heated and solidify on cooling, creating a strong and long-lasting bond. Hot melt glue is available in various forms, including sticks, pellets and flakes, depending on the intended use and application.

How does hot melt glue work?

Hot melt glue works simply but effectively. The process generally comprises three main steps:

1. Melt: The hot melt glue is heated until it becomes liquid. This usually occurs with the aid of special hot-melt equipment, such as hot-melt guns or systems. The temperature at which the glue melts varies depending on the type of hot melt glue being used.

2. Apply: When the hot melt glue has melted, it is evenly applied to the surface to be glued. This can occur manually with a hot-melt gun or automatically with specialised equipment, depending on the use.

3. Solidify: On application, the hot melt glue starts to cool down and quickly solidifies. This creates a strong bond between the materials glued together.

Workplace safety is a priority for every company. Manual pallet wrapping can lead to injuries due to overloading or falling. Pallet wrappers are designed with safety in mind and reduce the risk of injury to workers. Moreover, they are often equipped with safety sensors that allow the machine to stop immediately if an unusual occurrence is detected.

5. Consistent Quality

Manual wrapping can lead to uneven wrapping and inconsistent packing of the load. Pallet wrappers perform their tasks with precision, resulting in uniformly wrapped pallets. This is especially important for companies that need to comply with specific standards or regulations.

6. Time saving

Time is money, and a rotary table wrapper can save valuable time. They can be operational 24/7 and require minimal human intervention. This allows companies to process more loads in less time, improving their competitiveness.

7. Environmentally friendly

Modern pallet wrappers are often designed with environmental friendliness in mind. They typically use less wrapping film than manual processes, reducing environmental impact. Moreover, they can be integrated with wrapping film recycling programmes.

In the world of logistics and distribution, a pallet wrapper is much more than just a machine. It is a valuable tool that increases productivity, saves costs, improves load stability and promotes workplace safety. Companies that invest in pallet wrappers reap the benefits and are better able to adapt to the ever-changing demands of the logistics sector. It is an investment that quickly pays for itself and strengthens a company’s competitive position.
