Shrink Film and Stretch Film

Athens carries both shrink film and stretch film. Some people mistakenly use “shink” and “stretch” to describe the same thing. Shrink film is a polymer material that you heat to shrink it tightly around a “finished” item. Stretch film is for wrapping multiple packages together or securing products to a pallet. 

Athens carries the most popular kinds of stretch film, including:

  • machine grade
  • traditional hand film
  • pre-stretch film
  • banding film
  • anti-static film
  • vented film
  • colored stretch film

Strapping Products, Machines, and Tools

Products for strapping are “bands” or “straps” that bundle products together and secure pallet loads for safe transport and storage. Strapping products come in polyester, polypropylene, cord, and steel.

In addition to the strapping products themselves, we also supply tools for applying the strapping. These include manual, battery, and pneumatic strapping tools.
