Visitors to the Golden Valley Pallet Wrap Specialists Ltd (GVPS) stand at the forthcoming TCS&D Show (18 & 19 September, Peterborough Arena) will be able to see two new ranges of pallet wrap which will save users money on each pallet that they wrap.
Available exclusively through GVPS, the wrap – designated the Carbon and Alloy ranges – are available in both hand- and machine-applied versions.
Golden Valley say that, wrapping a typical palletised load using a standard 23 micron pallet wrap costs, on average, 28 pence but to wrap the same pallet with Carbon or Alloy machine pallet wrap costs just 18 pence – a saving of 10p per pallet. For a company that wraps 500 pallets per day this would equate to a saving of £13,000 per year.
The wrap’s strength comes from the innovative chemical compounds and the ultra modern manufacturing technique used in their production. Carbon and Alloy wrap are made from a blend of Octene and Henxene polymers and are produced using state of the art extrusion machinery which enables a seven layer bonded pallet wrap to be produced whereas traditional wraps have only three layers.
Despite being a thinner material than old style pallet wrap, the new Golden Valley Carbon and Alloy wraps offer exceptional strength and puncture resistance which means less wrapping is needed to achieve optimum palletised load stability.
Aside from the obvious costs benefits they bring, the new wraps have other advantages too. For example, because less material is used to wrap a pallet the user produces less packaging waste thereby reducing its carbon footprint.
Also, as more pallets are wrapped per roll of Alloy or Carbon, less downtime is incurred by the need to change the roll in applications where pallet wrapping machinery is used.
And, because fewer wraps are required to provide load stability, pallets are wrapped more time efficiently.
TCS&D visitors will also be able to discuss Golden Valley’s personalised ‘packaging health check’ service.
Designed to help businesses wrap their palletised loads as cost efficiently as possible, the service sets out to provide strategic, obligation-free and impartial advice on achieving the most effective pallet wrapping techniques.
