Industrial Shrink Wrapping Applications
Heat shrink wrapping is great for cargo or freight that needs to be covered for storage out of doors, for added protection for indoor storage, or for items that don’t require a full crate for protection but need a cover from rain and debris during transport.
The primary advantage of shrink-wrapping is protecting non-electronic equipment from the elements, including rain, dust, and debris for either storage or shipment.
Industrial Shrink Wrapping is Tougher Than a Tarp
When installed properly, shrink wrap can be tougher and much tighter around the cargo than tarps. This helps to eliminate stretching and tearing from the wind. The close fit also keeps the plastic from scratching the cargo. Most shrink wrap materials have UV inhibitors produced into them to fight the damage the sun has on many kinds of tarps.
Shrinkwrap is a polyethylene plastic that is formulated to shrink tightly, securing the cargo when heat is applied, providing a barrier to some moisture and debris. This shrinking process actually makes the plastic stronger, and when installed correctly, can form an effective seal around odd-shaped, large or cumbersome objects for storage or transport.
Benefits of Industrial Shrink Wrapping
- Cost savings.
“…heat shrink wrapping is the perfect match of durability, time savings, and cost effectiveness.”
Industrial shrink wrapping can protect almost anything, including machinery, pipes, equipment for boats, and even sculptures.
A business can lower its cost, space, and shipping and handling charges by selecting industrial heat shrink wrap services, where appropriate. Shrinkwrap can be tougher than tarps and the heat shrink process wraps it much tighter around the product than a tarp, eliminating stretching and tearing from the wind.
