Pallets of finished concrete blocks are stored outside and exposed to the weather for up to a year prior to use. The traditional stretch film being used was deteriorating over time causing product discolouration, load security concerns and product presentation issues.
Nationwide Concrete Block Manufacturer
Universal Packaging recommended their WEATHERSHIELD range of stretch film specially formulated to be used on pallets that are exposed to the elements for long periods of time. Each site was visited and trials were run to ensure the existing wrapping machinery was set up correctly, the film applied suited the pallet load profile and site personnel were trained in the correct application and usage of the new film.
The final outcome was positive with top quality product, securely wrapped and 100% presentable. The combined weather proofing elements of the WEATHERSHEILD film meant that not only was the product protected from harmful UV rays, but the added inside cling ensured no water ingress eliminating mould growth on the finished blocks.
What Our Customers Say
I have modified that parameter which has increased the carriage speed and reduced the total cycle time by half a minute, so definitely a good result. Thanks for your help with this.
Our new stretch wrapper is performing very well. It’s amazing how well it works, we are getting a far better yield from our wrap and with the new automatic option the time to wrap each pallet has been reduced dramatically.
Today I made the decision to place an order for another pallet of stretch film from Universal Packaging after buying from another supplier for the last couple of months. The reason is very simple – we had some supply issues with the other supplier. With Universal, we can absolutely trust their service, delivery and back-up and their price is still competitive, so we’re back. All the best for you and your team – we really appreciate our partnership.
We have been testing different stretch wrap in the past and found that Universal Packaging supplies really great quality product. We wrap pallets tight and keeping them stable is very important. From great consistency in the stretch wrap to fast and responsive service, I highly recommend Universal Packaging to supply you with your wrapping requirements.
Universal Packaging’s film is excellent because the film clings to itself very well which means we don’t get tails or film unwinding off the pallet which had been an ongoing issue until now. This is very important for wrapping pallets in our dusty environment.
Universal has super service and we like the quality of the product because it helps us with production efficiencies.
You guys are great, fantastic service, next day delivery always. The Customer Service team seems to know who we are each time we ring up.
