Another high value engineered product where Crayex is a proven market leader is Stretch Hooder.

Crayex Stretch Hooder is qualified on more than six automated manufacture machines and applications that range from brick/block, cement to horticulture. Other applications include: insulation board, appliance, wood pellets, resin and mineral bags, foam, mixed load distribution items, corrugated and other end uses that require 5 sided protection.

You may question – Why Stretch Hooder?

A few reasons include:

  • 5 Side protection
  • Speed of automation compared to alternative packaging
  • Presents your finished packaging well
  • Ability to print your logo on hooder film for added marketing value
  • Minimizes chance of theft during transportation
  • Minimal energy to apply packaging

Crayex offers a full line of hooder product types allowing stretch percents from 10% to over 50% per load. We offer Strexene Advantage as the “Go To” for general applications; Strexene Plus for irregular or high stretch applications; and Strexene for low stretch “stiffer film” applications.

Crayex also offers multiple blend packages, for instance, UV for outdoor, UVB for fade blocker, Antifog, Clear or colors, and static control – all available on 3” or 6” cores and up to a 40” OD roll. We can run hood tube for loads as small as 38”x30” up to a 4’x10’.

With tight controls on gauge and consistency, multiple lines of redundancy and a lower weight per hood – our product is a cost advantage to the competition.
