Market Outline: Stretch and Shrink Film Market

Among the specialized plastic packaging systems, shrink packaging or commonly known as shrink wrapping and stretch wrapping are very common and widely used. Though there are some apparent similarities in the two systems, in overall analysis, they are considered to be totally different in terms of material and operation. In the case of shrink wrapping, shrink film is used as the basic material and heat forms an important part of the operation, whereas, in the case of stretch wrapping, stretch film is used as the basic material and no heat is applied during the operation. Shrink Wrapping is done in 3 or 4 stages, such as wrapping (sleeve wrapping or over-wrapping), sealing (necessary only for over-wrapping), shrinking (with application of hot air), and cooling. Stretch wrapping is done only in two stages, namely, wrapping and sealing (most of the time even without a sealer). However, in many packaging applications, both the systems are considered as alternative to each other. These systems are mainly used for unitization, but sometime they are also being used as primary packaging system. Both the systems are used for bulk packaging as well as retail packaging. In fact, both the systems are now being used for some major applications like sleeving for labelling on various containers or sealing, besides wrapping.
