Stretch Hood

Stretch Hood

Stretch hood is one of the fastest growing packaging technique for transportation of goods on pallets. This packaging method aims to deliver high loading stability combined with outstanding pallet integrity for safe and fast transportation. SABIC offers specifically designed plastomer material solutions for stretch hood packaging, replacing traditional EVA based structures. These offers improved holding force and puncture resistance, resulting in down gauging possibilities.

Moreover the used stretch hood films can easily be recycled since they are not containing any vinyl acetates like in EVA based structures. Some of the polymers are available as a certified renewable grade, using a renewable feedstock supporting our customer’s sustainability goals.
