“Terflex” Stretch Hood represents the ultimate innovation in flexible plastic packaging. Tailored to address the evolving needs of the modern day packaging sector, it stands as an advanced and effective solution for safeguarding products during transportation, handling, and storage.

Also recognized as Elastic Stretch Hood, this gusseted tubular film seamlessly merges the unique attributes of Shrink Film with enhanced usability and swiftness in palletizing operations.


TermoPlastica Sghedoni’s Elastic Stretch Hood significantly contributes to sustainability and reduced environmental impact through three main factors:

  • Its usage eliminates the need for heat supply, resulting in reduced energy consumption;

  • Its elastic properties allow for a smaller perimeter of the tubular film compared to the pallet, thus minimizing plastic usage per pallet;

  • The utilization of multilayer extrusion technology enables the production of thinner films, further reducing the amount of plastic material utilized per pallet.

The versatility of the Stretch Hood renders it the optimal choice for managing loads of diverse sizes and a wide array of goods. This adaptability is facilitated by a range of distinctive features, making it exceptionally flexible and suitable for numerous scenarios:


Renowned for its capacity to conform to various load shapes and sizes, ensuring consistent and secure wrapping.

Holding Force

Boasting a significant clamping force that firmly secures the load, preventing undesirable movement during transport, handling, or storage.

Tear Resistance

With exceptional strength, the Stretch Hood minimizes the risk of tearing or damage, guaranteeing robust and long-lasting packaging.

Puncture Resistance

Its ability to withstand penetrating forces safeguards the packaging integrity, shielding goods from potential damages caused by punctures or perforations.


The Stretch Hood’s surface is designed to slide easily over the pallet surface, facilitating the wrapping process and ensuring efficient application;

Palletizing Speed

Eliminating the need for heat shrinking, the Stretch Hood accelerates the palletizing process significantly. This feature makes it the preferred solution for end-of-line plants managing a high volume of pallets daily.


Ease of use

The intuitive and rapid wrapping process involves stretching the gusseted tube over the goods to be packaged. Subsequently, automated sealing bars cut and seal the hood to the desired size, ensuring precise and secure packaging.
