Gardner, MA, March 19, 2024 – Seaman Paper, a leading global manufacturer of environmentally sustainable specialty paper and packaging solutions, today announced the launch of SeaStretch, a patented lightweight paper-based alternative to single-use plastic stretch film used to wrap and contain shipping and storage loads.

Amidst growing concerns about plastic pollution and pending legislation aiming to curb single-use plastics – such as SB 54 in California – which mandates all single-use packaging must be recyclable or compostable by 2032, SeaStretchemerges as a timely and innovative solution.

SeaStretchis a fully recyclable, FSC certified, crepe paper solution that is compatible with existing hand-wrapping, semi-automated, and automated pallet wrapping machines. SeaStretch is incredibly lightweight (42 gsm) and incredibly durable, stretchable, and highly resistant to tearing, making it the ideal packaging solution for pallet wrapping.

“SeaStretchis a game-changer for the packaging industry, as it offers a viable and cost-effective way to reduce plastic waste while ensuring product safety and security,” said Ken Winterhalter, CEO of Seaman Paper. “We are proud to introduce this innovative and environmentally friendly product to the market, as part of our commitment to creating paper-based, sustainable solutions while further living our motto, ‘People, Paper, Packaging, for a Sustainable World.’”

SeaStretch is available in natural kraft and white colors, and in various roll size sand weights to suit different applications and requirements.
