A cardboard or plastic corner board?
Depends on the type of product being marketed. If you sell aromatic plants or crops, which require being sprayed with a large amount of water every certain period of time, you probably need a plastic, more resistant corner board. Although we also offer cardboard corner boards with a lacquered and waterproof base that is highly resistant to water and humidity.
What is the perfect thickness for a corner board?
The thickness of the corner board depends on the weight of the pallet. The heavier it is, the thicker the corner board should be so as to secure the pallet’s safety.
Solvent or acrylic adhesive tape?
Solvent adhesive tape is made of different types of raw materials (natural and synthetic rubbers) mixed with hydrocarbon resins. When these solvents evaporate, a fixing, adhesive film is formed. This is the highest quality adhesive tape as it offers greater adhesion properties than the rest, and it suitable for any packaging grouping application. Whereas the acrylic adhesive tape, a synthetic type of tape mixed with water, is suitable for cardboard boxes.
What kind of film should I use?
To find out what kind of plastic packaging film you need, you should ask yourself first: How much do my goods weigh? Do I want it to be see-through? Is there a lot of pallets?Depending on your answer, you should use one or the other. For the weight, it is important to take into account the microns: the more microns, the greater resistance. For the aesthetics, you can choose the translucent film (if you want it to be see-through), or the opaque film in black, for example. Finally, quantity is important for assessing whether to perform the task manually or automatically with the help of a baler.
What is the difference between pre-stretched and stretchy film?
Stretchy film offers greater resistance and transparency, recommended for any type of palletization work. However, pre-stretched film takes up less space than stretchy film and requires less frequent reloading; also, its application demands very little effort. They can both be used manually and automatically.
