Stratos™ Stretch Film - Next Generation Film Sophisticated Films Doing More with Less. Stratos™ is a revolutionary US manufactured patented Stretch Film, 11.4 micron thickness and can be stretched by up to 300%.
Abco Kovex are the European agents for Stratos™ Stretch Films. Manufactured in North America, Stratos Stretch Film is unlike traditional stretch film, which is manufactured from polyethylene, Stratos is a multi-polymer material. It is made of several different layers of film to increase strength, stretch ratio and elasticity. This process gives Stratos a stretch ratio of 300%+ and a thickness of only 11.4micron, yet can maintain the same holding force of material with twice the thickness.
Stratos™ Stretch Film is more expensive per kilo, but by using less than half the film of traditional stretch film along with a free cardboard core, Stratos gives minimum savings of 20% on cost per year (based on 23mu traditional stretch film). Stratos was developed originally for the freezer industry and works in temperatures down to -30 degrees. With the addition of polypropylene, the film has extra clarity making it easy to read barcodes even when the product is frozen.
Abco Kovex have also recently been awarded ISO 14001 for actively reducing the amount of waste both ourselves and our customers put on the market, Stratos has been the forerunner in achieving this with an overall saving of 65% on stretch film consumed. We have currently reduced stretch film consumption for our customers by over 1,400 tonnes per year and over 30 tonnes of cardboard.
