Who do you use and why for your films?  I have zero experience in this area and am looking to start checking out options, thanks.

Interested in this discussion. I recently purchased a flow wrap packaging machine and am investigating my options with regard to film.

The kind of film you use depends a lot on what you're wrapping. Chocolate bars require different barrier properties than baked goods to. If you are buying you flow wrapper from a reputable source then they should be able to advise - or put you in touch with a manufacturer who can discuss your needs and recommend options. 

Here is a link to a page discussing some common film types.

I will take a look at the links.  I have access to a horizontal flow wrapper that has been given to my generous supporter.  But we are both without background or connections to sources of film; can't get past (so far) the mantra that there are sources out there which can provide the right wrap for my hi quality chocolate.  It's such a new and alien planet to me  and I can't seem to come up with key words to track down this type of film described to me.  I don't know if I would recognize it in an image.  It's a new language.

Daniel - thanks for providing this recommendation. The web site is a little challenging to navigate so I think calling is the faster alternative. You've used them?

Clay,

Yes, I have used them. I work with them ovet the phone and not email. They do provide their film for us and we have had great results. Prior to them, I was very frustrated with our flow wrapper and film. Changing film soved all of our problems. You can also order excellent film from overseas, but this is the domestic source and this is a great way to get started. Thanks!

Thanks I will take a look.  

If there is a website for your products I wouldn't mind taking a look to see what you found works for you?  Does your flow wrap machine have any vacuum or gas exchange properties?  I am just learning of those things as well.
