Shrink wrap provides a flexible, protective covering for almost any object. Most people only think of shrink wrap for small objects, however it can be used for large, bulky items. The average consumer may not think about how products survive transport to and from overseas while remaining completely undamaged. At Atlantic Shrink Wrapping Inc., that’s all we think about!
Atlantic Shrink Wrapping, Inc. (ASI) specializes in shrink wrapping products for shipment and storage. Shrink wrap is a plastic that shrinks when applied with heat that forms a tight seal to your product. The shrinking process makes the plastic stronger and can withstand weather and other conditions. Shrink wrap comes in different sizes and levels of thickness.
Shrink wrap can cover almost anything! ASI has worked with a wide range of products such as airplanes, ships, houses, buildings, etc. The list of products that can be wrapped is practically endless. However, there are some items that shrink wrap may not work best for. Based on the different considerations of your product, our team will determine whether shrink wrap is right for you.
Crating is another way to ship a large item, however, shrink wrap has major advantages over this traditional means of shipping. Shrink wrap is very light which saves on lift charges. Shrink wrap also only adds minimum height, width, and length to a product. Additionally, shrink wrap has advantages over the traditional tarp storage. Shrink wrap is tougher, tighter, and more secure than a tarp. Tarps may scratch a product and is unable to fight damage from the sun, unlike shrink wrap. Another great reason to use shrink wrap for shipment or storage is because shrink wrap is recyclable.
