Lauterbach / Sünna – The stretch film producer DUO PLAST has succeeded a further innovation step. With an 8 micron stretch film the film specialist sets a new highlight. The extruded 8 micron stretch film stands for a minimum film consumption and is available now under the brand name DUO XS.

We have managed to extrude an 8 micron stretch film in our plants the first time. Thereby we have achieved a further reduction in the thickness of stretch film besides our 10 micron stretch film DUO X10, which is already available in the market”, said Dr. Christian Rohm, Managing Director of DUO PLAST.

The brand name DUO XS stands for xtra slim and keeps the promise, that is hidden in his name. With the new stretch film innovation DUO PLAST offers its customers multiple advantages at once. The enormous reduction in thickness guarantees a lower stretch film consumption and thereby lowest costs per pallet. Despite the significantly reduced thickness the stretch film has a high elasticity in processing. Because of this the new DUO XS is suitable for the use in internal transportation and for protection against dust and moisture. The thickness reduced stretch film can be applied to semi automatic wrapping machines with mechanical brake or as hand stretch film.

Furthermore the ecological factor plays a large role when using the new DUO XS. The minimum of foil usage preserves the environment sustainably and reduces the waste disposal costs visibly. The innovative film is made from 100% polyethylene without addition of the chemical adhesive PIB and is easily recyclable. The stretch film innovation presents itself as an economical and sustainable development in the field of pallet packaging. More information is available online at:
