Stretch film for the insulation industry
Insulation material has a wide range of applications. The best known is probably the insulation of buildings internally and externally, but acoustic ceilings, solutions for greenhouse horticulture and floor insulation are also important applications. Insulation material must be well stabilised on a pallet. Whether it's rolls of insulation material or sheets. Both impose their specific conditions on pallet stability. These products are often delivered to a building site where they are not immediately processed. The stretch film therefore serves to protect the products during storage. During the development of stretch films for the insulation industry, these wishes were taken into account.
We notice that stretch film is often not the first priority for our customers. We understand that. At the same time, we see that pallet stability, damage prevention and flexible packaging processes are high on the agenda. It is precisely in this area that we can completely relieve you of your worries. Not only can we advise you on the right stretch film for your insulation material, we can also integrate it seamlessly into your processes. In such a way that you have optimally stable pallets and a smooth packaging process without disturbances.

YOUR PRODUCTS TRANSPORTED SAFELY
Due to the sharp 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 still looking for sustainable solutions. Thanks to the optimal packaging of the pallets, we never use more film than is necessary. This means lower costs and a considerably lower CO2 footprint than with conventional stretch film.

Interview with Jelle Dendauw from ESTL
How to get your products safely on the road
How do you secure a thousand bottles of soda to a truck so that it remains standing, even if the driver suddenly has to brake or swerve? A typical question about load stability, such as Jelle Dendauw, who often comes across at his company ESTL.
Dendauw is one of the co-founders of ESTL in Deerlijk, Belgium. He was an engineer in mechanical engineering and actually ended up in the cargo insurance business by accident, in 2009. That year is no coincidence, because in 2009 Belgium received new legislation on cargo stability.Read more

Load security and regulations from EUMOS
“truck overturned after nearly losing cargo”, “truck loses complete cargo on roundabout”, “truck ends up in the ditch”
Anyone reading these headlines may not be aware that all these accidents may have been caused by the fact that the cargo transported was not sufficiently stable. The European Council and the European Parliament are well aware that poorly secured cargo leads to more than 1 000 deaths and many more serious injuries every year.Read more
