MASTERPAK Develops More Powerful Power Pre-Stretch Film

For OUTBOUND home page, go to

MASTERPAK begins production of machine stretch with very high elongation up to 350%.

MASTERPAK in Zouk Mosbeh, Lebanon began production of machine stretch/power pre-stretch with elongation up to 350%, in August 2010. The Lebanese polyethylene film manufacture has previously produced machine stretch with up to 300% pre-stretch ratio.

Purpose of the Shift to ‘Machine Stretch Very High Elongation’

Tony Yaacoub, Industrial Sales Coordinator, explains,

“We developed this machine stretch/power pre-stretch with very high elongation to meet the growing demand in the European and British markets for a more powerful stretch film that stretches to above 300%.

Another reason fueling the new film production is to reduce packaging material costs and film waste, thus provide higher value (on price) for stretch film.”

Guy Habbaki, Quality Assurance Manager, states,

“Our very high elongation machine stretch film offers:
  • Excellent load holding capacity
  • High puncture resistance (resistance to ripping)
  • Safe storage and transit of your products

We are already booking orders.”

Specifications of the Machine Stretch/Power Pre-Stretch

The new and improved machine stretch/power pre-stretch film has a pre-stretch ratio of above 300% rather than the previous ratio of above 250%. Furthermore, its tensile strength has increased, the force required to reach breaking point is higher, thus the film is stronger and can handle heavier loads.

Also, the power pre-stretch film has higher elongation, tear resistance, and cling ability. It is more elastic and can stretch farther, it can withstand punctures and can hold products more securely.

MASTERPAK produces manual, machine and power pre-stretch film as clear, colored, tinted or opaque and in a complete range of gauges, sizes and performance options.
