Stretch Hood

Stretch Hood

Stretch hood packaging requires excellent holding force and consistent elasticity for load stability, as well as tear and weather resistance.

The quality of the material plays a big role in a stretch hood’s effectiveness. With its broad range of resins, Dow can produce a higher-value, higher-performing stretch hood film that meets specific needs.
