The transparent paper

The plastic or transparent paper adheres to itself which allows wrapping food, sealing containers, wrapping food before taking them to the fridge or freezer and even, when it is of good quality, it can be used during food cooking since it perfectly withstands temperatures up to 175º.

Tips

  • We recommend that you do not use the same piece of transparent paper for different products, once in contact with one food you should not use it for a different one.

Composition of transparent paper or film

The transparent paper is made of low-density polyethylene: formed from the polymerization of ethylene molecules under high pressure conditions, it is a soft, flexible plastic with little resistance to temperature.

It does not serve to lose weight

The transparent kitchen paper is used only to ensure the absorption of some aesthetic products on the skin since it does not give another way for the pores to breathe. You will sweat but I doubt you will lose weight with the paper. Unfortunately the only way to lose weight is by producing a caloric deficit, either by decreasing calorie intake and / or increasing the level of physical activity. The rest are myths. And they can put health at risk, the plastic paper or transparent paper make the body perspire, you will lose only water, not fat and when you drink again you regain the lost weight. It also represents a danger because you can become dehydrated. Self-adhesive, transparent or film paper, these are the multiple names given to it, it is a paper fully tested by the health authorities and is not harmful to health, you can quietly wrap all the food you want in it. There are different types of film. In order for you to know which film paper best suits you and your needs, we have described and explained each of them in detail. Stretch film is used to wrap the pallets and secure and protect them during transport. In addition, it also preserves the goods from external atmospheric agents, such as rain and dust. First of all, you will have to differentiate between automatic and manual films. From this differentiation, you will begin to choose which film paper is best for you. We have described and explained each of them in detail. Stretch film is used to wrap the pallets and secure and protect them during transport. In addition, it also preserves the goods from external atmospheric agents, such as rain and dust. First of all, you will have to differentiate between automatic and manual films. From this differentiation, you will begin to choose which film paper is best for you. We have described and explained each of them in detail. Stretch film is used to wrap the pallets and secure and protect them during transport. In addition, it also preserves the goods from external atmospheric agents, such as rain and dust. First of all, you will have to differentiate between automatic and manual films. From this differentiation, you will begin to choose which film paper is best for you.

The film paper that is used according to your needs

At our specialized packaging portal, Cajadecarton.es, we have different types of film. As you have seen previously, the main differentiation is how it is applied. Depending on whether it is used by hand or with a packaging system. So, we will start by explaining what are the types of manual film paper that we have on our website. Related Post: How to assemble the stretch film applicator Transparent Stretch Film It is the most used to palletize and group different goods on a pallet. You can find it in 23 and 30 microns and in 2Kg and 2.4Kg coils. Its pre-stretch is over 180%, in addition, its inner layer is self-adhering, so it allows you to comfortably palletize. On the other hand, it is very resistant to tearing or perforation, so you do not have to worry about it breaking.

Film without Internal Chuck

The main characteristic of this film is that it does not have an inner cardboard core. Thanks to this advantage, 100% of the weight of the coil is film, so you can save with your purchases. With the plastic dispenser, you can palletize with the coreless film in a very easy and safe way. At Cajadecarton.es, for the purchase of 6 units of coreless film, we give you a dispenser. Related Post: How To Calculate Your Savings With Stretch Film Without Mandrel

Mini and Macro Film

Like the other films explained, they are applied manually. Its main objective is to palletize and group smaller objects in a much more comfortable way, unlike palletizing small objects with a large coil. For this type of film we also have a smaller dispenser.

Color Films

In our portal we have 3 types of stretch film colors: black, white and blue. The main function of colored films is to prevent the contents of the pallet from being visible. Since it provides opacity and protects the privacy of your merchandise and anonymity. Another of its functions is to distinguish goods with the naked eye.

Perforated Macro Film

It is used to palletize and group goods that need ventilation. As would be the case of food (fruits, vegetables, frozen, etc.), pet food, gardening (plants, flowers, etc.) and pharmaceuticals. This film is designed to offer maximum aeration with its special holes. So condensation on the pallets is avoided, since its structure allows the largest amount of air to circulate.

The microns of the film

The thickness of the film is measured in microns. This unit of measurement allows us to differentiate the different types of stretch film according to their thickness of sheet plastic. For example, in our portal we have different types of stretch film depending on the micron. 10, 15, 23 and 30 microns. The most used by our users is the 23 micron film. This type of wrapping is used more in hospitality than aluminum foil, as it has several advantages: it adapts better to any surface, it breaks less and it is transparent, which allows you to see what it contains with the naked eye (something that is very useful in a professional kitchen). It is also considerably cheaper than aluminum foil.

What it should be used for

  • Plastic film is more useful for wrapping some foods that, due to their shape, do not adapt well to aluminum foil (which breaks more easily). It is ideal for keeping fruits, vegetables, some sausages in the fridge, covering containers and, in short, covering anything that has a more or less irregular shape.
  • The film withstands the heat much worse than the “Albal” paper and that is why it is not usually used for cooking. Now, there are stronger films that can be used in the microwave, something that can be useful to prevent food from drying out. Of course, before using it, take a good look at the information on the package. Not all plastic films can be used for this purpose.

What it should not be used for

  • For cooking at high temperatures, such as in ovens, barbecues or pans.
  • To wrap products that will be exposed to sunlight
