Have you personally researched the stretch film market? Are you getting value for money?

This self test is designed by Pack King, just for you. To determine if you are getting the best deal from your stretch film supplier. Just add your answer, after the question.

After you submit it to us, we will return e-mail you with the results. If you already have a good deal, we will tell you. If we believe you can save money with a better deal, we will show you how. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

  1. Are you using hand stretch film or machine stretch film?

  2. What type of film is it. Cast or blown?

  3. What is the gauge in microns e.g. 7 / 10 / 15 / 17 / 21 / 25?

  4. What is the length of the roll?

  5. Standard roll width is 500mm. If different please advise.

  6. What is the weight of the roll?

  7. Is it pre-stretched or different from standard?

  8. If using a machine. Is it fitted with a manual or powered pre stretch function?

  9. If using a pre stretch. What %age increase are you getting from the roll?

  10. How many rolls do you buy at one time?

  11. What do you pay per roll.

  12. What is your name?

  13. What is the name of your company?

  14. What is your e-mail address?

Why all the questions, you may ask. The answer is that many factors influence price and performance. Examples:

  1. Roll width can vary between 450mm and 500mm. Only 50mm difference, but that equates to 10% less film on the roll.

  2. Cast film is clear and low noise, whilst blown film is usually less clear and noisy.

  3. Cast film comes in many layers between 2 – 9. Number and type of layers can be determine strength, tack, elongation, puncture resistance, clarity, etc.

  4. Roll weight will differ, even if all other parameters remain the same – due to the type of film used; elonogation quotient; number of layers, etc.

  5. You can buy pre-stretched; ultra thin; low metre rolls – but how beneficial are they?

  6. You could be using a totally appropriate film, or you could be losing thousands.

This is a genuine free service, designed to help you get the best film to suit your needs. It takes just a few minutes to complete. When finished, please e-mail to
