Make sure that your pellets are safely wrapped before being transported to your customers

Are moisture and ultraviolet light from the sun causing trouble?

Stretch hood is one of the fastest growing applications in pallet packaging (around 20% annual growth rate in Europe), due to the high package integrity and the flexibility of its use for palletizing various product loads.

Stretch hood is the solution to stabilize and handle very unstable loads. By use of the right unitization technology you can minimize the most prevalent types of damage to loads such as shifting, ripped or loose packing, crushing, water damage and infestation.

The stretch hood is made from a continuous roll of gusseted film which is stretched over the pallet load for maximum load integrity. It's a fully automatic operation where the machine automatically adjusts to the pallet height in question.
