The Stretch Hood POLYHOOD® is made with co-polymers that allow the film to be stretched without reaching the point of permanent deformation. The Stretch Hood stretches in transversal direction (TD) and machine direction (MD). When the film is applied covering five sides of the load (four sides and the top), it allows the film to conform according to the shape of the load on the pallet, avoiding the product to move and protecting it from the dust, humidity and ultra-violet rays. Stretch Hood film is a film sleeve made in a co-extrusion machine which can be manufactured with or without gussets. The Stretch Hood POLYHOOD® is manufactured with 100% virgin low density polyethylene resin, due to its unique formulation, provides sealability and compact packages with excellent optical and barrier properties.
Using our Stretch Hood film is the most convenient and safest method to unite and protect different products.
