Stretch film for the chemical industry
The chemical industry is a relatively large and innovative sector in the Netherlands. The transport of these products is subject to strict rules and, at the same time, the diversity of pallet loads is great. Pallet stability is essential, whether it concerns pallets with paint cans or drums. We are happy to help you with that!
We see a wide variety of types of cargo. Think of pallets with cans of paint, drums or, for example, heavy bagged goods with raw materials. This diversity also brings with it specific challenges when it comes to the safe packaging and transport of the cargo. Our technical specialists have in-depth knowledge when it comes to achieving pallet stability for all these loads.

AFP helps you transport your products safely
Due to a strong increase in road freight transport, the need for pallet stability has only increased in recent years. Unstable pallets can have a major impact on safety, efficiency and costs. AFP is the partner to help reduce these risks.
In addition, AFP is always looking for sustainable solutions. By optimally wrapping pallets, we never use more film than necessary. This means lower costs and a considerably lower CO2 footprint than with a conventional stretch film.Would you like more information?
