HexcelPack (Bristol, CT) has introduced PalletWrap, an innovative 100% paper-based pallet wrapping material. A cost-effective and sustainable shipping solution, PalletWrap is a fully-recyclable, plastic-free alternative to traditional pallet wrapping material.
Developed with high-tension PowerStretch technology designed specifically for pallet use, PalletWrap provides maximum protection and adhesion to ensure integrity of goods during transport. The solution utilizes a new variation of HexcelPack’s groundbreaking slit paper technology with a unique hexagon slit pattern and eight times more rows of slits than its sister product, HexcelWrap. This process converts extensible paper into a three-dimensional, internationally patented cushioning product by making precise cuts at specific angles.
As a result, the paper product is able to stretch into shape, maximizing the strength and stiffness of its fibers, creating a much stronger wrap with the ability to nearly double in length. HexcelPack’s PalletWrap is compatible with certain existing automated pallet wrapping equipment, and does not require major modifications or special machinery to integrate. Customers can simply add the new material to their current pallet wrapping equipment and begin use immediately.
