Propak Industries’ Ventilated Pallet Wrap (also known as macro-perforated wrap, stretchable netting, holey wrap and breathable stretch wrap) has been designed to deliver quality and value assurances to the fresh produce and beverage industries.
The Ventilated Wrap allows fresh fruit and vegetable produce to travel at a constant internal temperature, significantly reducing the risk of overheating in transit while avoiding the build-up of condensation. Also allows for even ripening of fruit and veg throughout.
- Fully reusable and recyclable
- Provides the greatest load stability using less plastic wrap
- Outstanding ventilation
- Suitable for both cold chain and ripening requirements
- Meets DC packing requirements
Our Ventilated Wrap is available for all types of applications from hand to semi and fully automatic machine grades films, in both pre-stretch and non pre-stretch.
|CODE||DESCRIPTION||LENGTH METRES||OPTIMUM METERS ONCE STRETCHED|
|NT600||Hand Pre-Stretched 150%||300|
|NT610||Hand Pre-stretched 40%||470|
|NT705||Hand Pre-Stretched 15%||600|
Machine Non Pre-Stretched 300%
Best paired with Propak’s MAS350 and MAS500 wrapper with a power pre-stretch system. When applied by these machines, the perforated holes become a large oval shape and ventilate stretch to an approximate 60-100mm diameter. We recommend this film for heavy pallets that need to travel long distance with power head machines. This film is ideal for wrapping produce that is warmer straight from picking like mangoes, tomatoes and rock melons to allow excellent ventilation and cooling in the transition from hot to cold going into refrigeration, preserving produce fresh
Machine Pre-Stretched 40%
This is the original ventilated Macro Wrap, best paired with Propak’s MAS50 to be used with a friction brake or electromagnetic brake system. When applied by this machine, the large holes have been pre-stretched leaving approximately 40% elasticity left for machine stretching tensioning purposes. The high performance and capabilities of this film, help to compensate a lower grade of pallet wrapper. We recommend this with for medium to heavy weighted pallets with wrapping machines that do not have a power head like our MAS50
We recommend this for: Strawberries, cheese, avocados and oranges
Machine Non Pre-Stretched 270%
Best paired with Propak’s MAS350 and MAS500 wrapper with a power pre-stretch system. When applied by these machines, the perforated holes become square in shape and stretch to an approximate 40-50mm diameter. This offers great stability for heavy loads and ideal for produce/products that require airflow and stability
We recommend this for: bottles of soft drink, apples, mushrooms and poultry
Machine Non Pre-Stretched 270%
This wrap has the same qualities as NT701 just a longer roll to help reduce roll changes in a very busy packshed
Machine Pre-Stretched 15%
This ventilated Macro Wrap is best paired with Propak’s MAS50 to be used with a friction brake or electromagnetic brake system and non power head wrapper. When applied by this machine, these square holes have been pre-stretched leaving approximately 15% elasticity left for machine stretching tensioning purposes. The high performance and capabilities of this film, help to compensate a lower grade of pallet wrapper and ideal for preserving light produce
We recommend this for: Herbs, salad mixes and broccoli
Suitable for powerhead machines with produce, food and beverages that require medium load stability. We recommend testing for your produce suitability
Here is an example of how less of Propak’s wrap is used compared to others

ROMBOLO USING MACRO
BEFORE: customer now using Propak Industries pallet wrapper with Propak’s Ventilated Wrap.
The benefit of combining Propak’s pallet wrapper with our ventilated wrap, is that the weight per pallet used is controlled by the actual stretch the machine has applied to the material to give the true reading. Propak Industries MAS Pallet Wrapping Machine controls all parameters to reduce waste and costs.
