Sidel expands banding portfolio with stretchable EvoFilm


EvoFilm Stretch, Sidel ‘s latest stretch film , is designed to offer the beverage, food, household and personal care markets a new sustainable solution for secondary packaging. As consumer trends such as sustainability and SKU proliferation continue to influence production and distribution needs, customers require alternative secondary packaging solutions that can meet these demands in a more cost-effective manner.

In response, Sidel offers a new stretch film technology that revolutionizes banding processes. Complementing its existing packaging portfolio, the new stretchable EvoFilm achieves 90% energy savings and 50% plastic film reduction.

Today, plastic film remains an ideal material for secondary packaging thanks to the best lightness and density ratio per unit of sale in its category.


Eliminating the need for any heat source, banding technology involves pre-stretching the film and wrapping it around the primary packaging. Thanks to this unique advantage, stretchable EvoFilm reduces plastic film consumption, while using much less energy.

“Compared to traditional solutions, our new stretch banding solution is a sustainable option for customers looking for alternative secondary packaging. This solution is primarily intended for multipacks and logistics packages, where printed film is not required, ensuring reduction of the material, lower ecological impact and profitability”, indicates Giorgio Rocca, End of Line Product Manager. “With its ability to handle recycled films, stretchable EvoFilm meets our customers’ sustainability goals, while being a competitive option.”


With speeds of up to 80 packages per minute, the new solution quickly stretches film and applies proper banding force to any packaging format. Applicable to all types of packaging from 0.1 to 8 liters, in bulk or multi-packs, and a wide range of package formats, stretchable EvoFilm is a versatile solution that can meet the demands faced by the beverage, food, consumer goods industries. for home and personal care.
