Industrial Shrink Wrapping
What is industrial shrink wrapping used for?
Industrial shrink wrapping is used to contain and protect products during transportation and storage. There are multiple applications shrink wrap can be used for and a variety of wrap types and materials to suit each purpose. TUFWRAP’s shrink wrap systems can be tailored to fit over any object, no matter the size or shape.
How is shrink wrapping applied?
When heat is applied to shrink wrap material it shrinks down to form a tight seal around the product. This tough, plastic film conforms to the shape of the object and protects it from any potential damage from outside environmental factors. Depending on the size, shape and location of the object, a heat gun or alternative application method may be used.
Can shrink wrap be customised to each project?
Cut to size and fused together on-site, TUFWRAP’s shrink wrap sheeting or modular bags can be tailored to your project specifications. Our completely sealed shrink wrap systems provide weather abatement, moisture control and corrosion preservation. Shrink wrapping projects we frequently work on include:
- Boat winterisation
- Scaffold protection
- Enclosure of pallets
- Wrapping large or oddly shaped products
What are the benefits of shrink wrapping?
Quick, easy and versatile in application, shrink wrapping is a popular containment method across many industries. Some of the benefits of a TUFWRAP shrink wrapping system include:
When shrink wrap is heat sealed, it protects the asset from damage caused by dirt, dust or moisture during transportation across land or sea.
Shrink wrap can be used to create a completely controlled and sealed environment around the asset. This preservation system assists with long- or short-term storage of items and assures the integrity of the asset for years to come.
Ward-off bad weather conditions on a job site or quickly make-good on a partial build with a shrink wrap coating. These TUFWRAP systems can easily be used to cover exposed areas and protect them from rain, wind or excessive heat.
Shrink wrapping is a simple and affordable choice when transporting or storing products. Effectively, it bundles products together and contains bulky items to help minimise space and keep the item clean and uncontaminated.
The taught, drum-like finish of shrink wrapping provides the perfect advertising space for your business. It allows you to print large-scale branding for maximum logo exposure for the duration of your project.
A TUFWRAP shrink wrap solution can be tailor-made to suit the specifications of each project. Cut and welded on-site, shrink wrap can be utilised in difficult-to-access locations and on odd shapes. No restriction on size, and there is no item too big or small. From bridges to buildings, boats and scaffolding, TUFWRAP have a solution that will fit.
The sealed finish of a shrink wrap system protects your asset from harm and keeps it safe and contained. The opaque coating will keep your job under wraps and away from prying eyes.
