  1. Plastic wrap

    Plastic wrap, cling film, cling wrap or food wrap, is a thin plastic film typically used for sealing food items in containers to keep them fresh over a longer period of time. Plastic wrap, typically sold on rolls in boxes with a cutting edge, clings to many smooth surfaces and can thus remain tight over the opening of a container without adhesive or other devices. Common plastic wrap is roughly 0.5 mils, or 12.5 µm, thick. In Australia and New Zealand the genericized trademark glad wrap is commonly used, while Saran wrap has become genericized in North America.
