Buy stretch wrap

Stretch wrap is a polyethylene plastic, also referred to as pallet wraps or hand wrap, generally used to hold boxes on a pallet for transport. Stretch wrap is pulled around the load and stretched. The plastic has a memory and wants to return to its original size. Thus the "elastic band effect" holds the load tight. Mostly used to package products together for internal and external shipping.

Stretch Wrap film offers excellent load holding force and puncture resistance, protects your goods during warehousing and transport, and reduces tampering. Wrapping small items for shipping or storage with stretch film, eliminates the need for tape, string, strapping, and other conventional securing methods. Narrow width stretch film stretches more than the wider widths while still retaining much of its memory/recovery properties. No adhesives mean that there is no sticky residue left behind or boxes surfaces torn up when removed.
