What are the benefits of Shrink Wrap?

Shrink wrapping is an easy process that only requires two things; the right kind of film and heat. With just a roll of shrink wrap film and a heating source, you can waterproof, weatherproof and tamperproof just about anything you have. Since there is very little restriction on the size item you can shrink wrap, big or small; you now have a way to protect even your bulkiest of items. As an added bonus, shrink wrap film is recyclable; when you’re finished with it, you can toss it in with your other plastic bags to be recycled and remade for future uses.

  • Protection
    When heat is applied to shrink wrap, it creates a very tight seal. This plastic seal then fully protects the shrink wrapped contents. Once sealed, the items are no longer vulnerable to the damage that can be caused by dust, dirt or moisture. Some types of shrink wrap even come with UV protection, to keep your products safe from the sun’s harmful rays.
  • Durability
    Shrink wrap is made from a very sturdy, durable plastic. It is difficult to tear or puncture. Unlike other materials, shrink wrap does not become brittle or weaken when it is in the sun or extreme cold. Once the shrink wrap has been heated and sealed over your objects, it will not loosen or sag.
  • Tampering
    Since shrink wrap both seals and holds its shape once applied, any tampering will be noticeable immediately. For this reason, many pharmaceutical companies now shrink wrap their products, as well as food manufacturers. Some types of shrink wraps used by banks and government agencies change color when the plastic has been stretched, to show that the sealed items have been touched.
  • Affordability
    Compared to other packaging materials, shrink wrap can be a very affordable choice. It also is designed to minimize space; it keeps bundled items close together without the use of additional bulky materials, such as boxes. Space saved is money saved, both in storage and transport.
  • Branding
    An added feature of shrink wrap is that it can be designed with colors, words, pictures and logos that promote your products. From your production floor until it reaches the end user, your product isn’t just wrapped in plastic—it’s wrapped in your brand. This is a marketing tool that can increase brand awareness, and make you more visible to your customers.
  • Convenience
    The one item that most separates shrink wrap from other packaging materials is that it can be used for any size project. Small electrical wires are often shrink wrapped to prevent exposure to moisture. Game pieces, candies, and hardware can all be bunched and shrink wrapped. On the other end of the spectrum, shrink wrap kits are sold to weatherize boats and greenhouses. Freight on trailers and trains can be shrink wrapped for easier transport. Even entire buildings have been shrink wrapped to prevent chemical leaks or exposure from hazardous materials.

    Dual Chamber Shrink Tunnels

    Fully controllable air temperature and velocity on our high speed tunnels allows you to customize the shrinking conditions to the package being run.
    The T-62 and T-72H high speed shrink tunnels were created to solve the most persistent shrink challenges: keeping up with high speed automatic wrappers, processing product with heat absorptive surfaces, and wrapping irregularly shaped product where the film must conform tightly to the product.

  • Features high speed dual-chamber tunnel for the ultimate shrinking capacity, each with independently controllable temperature and air velocity
  • Two models offer varying tunnel passage dimensions for multiple applications
  • Available in stainless steel construction
  • Extended Single Shrink Tunnels

    The T-71 and T-81 high speed shrink tunnels were created to solve the higher speed applications not requiring a dual chamber shrink tunnel. Our designs feature an extended single chamber for increased shrink time, while remaining cost-effective since the tunnel utilizes single controls and single blowers.

  • Features a longer (60") single chamber tunnel to facilitate increased shrinking capacity at higher speeds
  • Powerful hot air system keeps pace with the most demanding use
  • Powerful hot air system keeps pace with the most demanding use
  • T-81 tunnel passage is slightly wider and higher than that of the T-71
  • T-71 available in stainless steel construction for wipe down
  • Large Capacity Shrink Tunnel

    Sometimes, you just need more room. Our T-9 large capacity shrink tunnel is designed for those packages that are too large or too wide to fit through a T-7 Series tunnel. Large capacity features varying tunnel heights and widths to best meet your shrinking needs.

  • Precisely engineered hot air circulation pattern produces tightly wrapped packages.
  • Optional live roller conveyor recommended for wide, heavy product and rolls wrapped in polyolefin or PVC shrink films.
