Germany-based packaging film maker Duo Plast has developed an 8µm stretch film, named Duo XS.

The new extruded film is considered an economical and sustainable development in the field of pallet packaging.

It has been designed to minimise film consumption, thereby reducing waste disposal costs.

Made from polyethylene, Duo XS does not contain chemical adhesive polyisobutylene (PIB) and is easily recyclable.

Duo Plast managing director Dr. Christian Rohm said: "We have managed to extrude an 8µm stretch film in our plants the first time.

"Thereby we have achieved a further reduction in the thickness of stretch film besides our 10µm stretch film Duo X10, which is already available in the market."

"We have achieved a further reduction in the thickness of stretch film besides our 10µm stretch film Duo X10."

The reduction in thickness provided by the product offers lower stretch film consumption and thereby lowers costs per pallet.

Duo XS offers high elasticity and is suitable for internal transportation, as well as protection against dust and moisture.

The new stretch film can be applied to semi-automatic wrapping machines with mechanical brakes, or as a hand stretch film.

Duo Plast-made stretch films are currently used in the industrial and agricultural sector and for the packaging of food products.

The company also distributes packaging equipment, and operates two production plants for blown films in Hesse and Thuringia, Germany.
