Load containment system

January 1, 2007


To maintain product quality during transit around the plant and on the road, the Stretchable Tape Load Containment System from 3M helps prevent loads from tipping, vibrating and shifting. It provides ventilation so loads chill faster and prevents corrugated degradation from condensation. The two-part system features Scotch Stretchable Tape and the 3M Stretchable Tape Wrapper ST 1000, a semi-automatic pallet wrapping device that ensures consistent, optimized tape stretch ratio and pattern. The tape contracts to tighten the load, without crushing the cartons.
