Here at CrateThis, our team is dedicated to providing great packing solutions for domestic and international shipping. At the heart of that, is providing packing materials that are tailored to what you are shipping, how you are shipping it, and where it is being shipped. For example, electronic devices that are shipped by ocean freight overseas can benefit from vapor barrier protection that is designed to prevent water damage. One material that is extremely important to protecting shipments is shrink wrap. In this article, we will cover the various applications, how it works, and what to consider when having goods packed. If you are looking for commercial or industrial packing solutions for your business, please contact us for a customized quote for your shipment.
Shrinkwrap is usually made with polyolefin plastic like PVC or LDPE. It gets its name from the fact that it has little elasticity and provides a tight seal over whatever it is wrapped over. Shrinkwrap is highly useful for packing individual items, especially items that are susceptible to damage from dirt, dust, and other debris. By creating a barrier, you can protect your goods from damage.
Shrink wrap is applied to industrial and commercial machinery and other goods by being wrapped around, cut and the heated. The heat causes the shrink wrap to shrink against the thing that it is wrapped around, providing a tight and impenetrable seal. This seal prevents dust, dirt, and other debris from affecting your shipment. Combined with vapor barrier protective coatings and other packing materials, shrink wrap can prevent damage to your shipments.
