Western Plastics Line of
'Greener' Stretch Films
HYBRiD 80 is also available in colors
The U.S. market is seeing a shift in the stretch film industry
to lighter, stronger pallet wrap in both hand and machine grade
film. Many top manufacturers have indicated that within 3 -
5 years the 80 gauge will no longer be sold in the market place
because of current soaring cost to produce film.
We have developed HYBRiD80. This line will give distributors
a break from high priced (me too 80 gauge) standard pallet film
an opportunity to enhance their sales efforts.
We created this line to help distributors develop new business,
maintain profit margins and also to offer your customers something
new to talk about.
Western Plastics wants to stay ahead of the curve in developing
and promoting new and innovative ways to help our distributors.
HYBRID IS THE FUTURE... THE FUTURE IS HYBRID - BOTTOM LINE.
HYBRiD80 is a multi-layered cast 12 micron film (47 gauge) with
a metallocene additive that has a high resistance to stretch
for superior load retention that will perform as well as an
80 gauge film. It will be sold in a range of 20%+ savings under
conventional 80 gauge wrap.
The HYBRiD80 is available in 3", 5", 18", 20"
extended core hand wrap, 18" handwrap and machine films,
which can also be printed on.
Replaces nylon twine.
Stretch film will not "bite" into the wood.
Leaves no residue.
More economical than tape,
strapping and twine.
I'd like to talk a little bit about our operations also. We've
also put in quite a bit or are in the process of adding capacity
in some of our businesses. In stretch film, by the end of February,
we will be making a product called Pre-stretch, it's a specialty
film, it completes our product line. It's the only product that
we're missing in that marketplace. Transcript analysts conference call.

'Going Green' . . . How This Business Trend Affects Industrial
The concepts of "going green" and promoting "sustainability"
are fueling a global trend that permeates the business landscape.
As industrial marketers, we can do ourselves a big favor by
taking advantage of the advice offered by both the environmentalists
and the experienced business professionals who are "going
green." Both parties recommend that we take an approach
that involves educating ourselves (and our co-workers, customers
and, perhaps, the local community) about this trend and, through
this educational process, we develop or change our perception
of "going green" to be a positive, beneficial experience. US Packaging News Source
U.S. retailers push packagers to think "green"
Growing demand from U.S. retailers and manufacturers for smaller,
eco-friendly packages is pushing box makers and chemical companies
to create compact packaging that is bio-based and recyclable.
I would say that the balance is still probably weighted more
toward cost control," but the significance of environmental
benefits is growing, said one analyst. News Wires
Bulk packaging suppliers focused on efficiency and environment
Buyers today are looking to their bulk packaging suppliers to
help them better maximize their supply chain efficiencies, improve
cost effectiveness, and provide more "green" products
for use in their supply chains. Bulk packaging products in general
fall into two categories: rigid bulk packaging, which includes
drums, rigid intermediate bulk containers (RIBCs), pails, corrugated
boxes; and flexible bulk packaging, which includes shipping
sacks, flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBCs), film wrap,
strapping and liners. Purchasing.com
