TENOLAN film packing

Dimensions

The manufactured films have a thickness from 6 μm to 150 μm. A standard series of thickness is shown in the material lists of particular types of films.
Film rolls or coils are produced at widths from 10 mm to 2700 mm.
The permitted film width tolerances are as follows:

  • widths up to 300 mm ± 0.5 mm
  • widths exceeding 300 mm (+ 2 mm; -1 mm)

Other tolerances may be agreed on within a contract of purchase.
The greatest dimension of films trimmed to size is 1 150 mm.
Tolerances of trimmed films are ± 5 mm unless agreed otherwise.

Packing

Films of required width and quantity are rolled on paper tubes or trimmed to size.
Standard inner Ø of a paper tube is 76.2 mm or 152.4 mm. With small rolls of film it is possible to use paper tubes of Ø 30 mm or 40 mm.
Rolls might comprise several pieces taped together by colour or transparent self-adhesive polyester tape. The number of such joined pieces may be agreed on within a contract of purchase.
Rolls of widths exceeding 300 mm are packed in protective PET film. Once plastic front parts are fixed in place, the rolls are loaded onto pallets so that the total height of loaded rolls does not exceed 1.5 m. To prevent any involuntary movement of such rolls, they are bound by cord, and the entire pallet is wrapped in shrink foil.
Rolls of widths less than 300 mm (disks) are packed in PE bags or PET film and placed in cardboard boxes. Individual layers are separated by cardboard sheets. The cardboard boxes are bound to a pallet with cords running lengthwise and crosswise.
Films trimmed to size or on small rolls are packed in protective foil and placed in a cardboard box, or a box with 2 compartments of suitable dimension.
Another method of packing can be agreed upon between the customer and the manufacturer in a contract of purchase so that the products are sufficiently protected against dust, dirt and damage.
