Shrink Wrap That’s Out of This World
In support of NASA and the Orbital Sciences Antares Rocket Launch January 2014
Atlantic Shrink Wrapping Inc. was called to Wallops Island, VA to shrink wrap support equipment for the latest Antares rocket fuel system. The rocket was being launched to the International Space Station. The equipment had been wrapped for its trip to Wallops Island but was in very poor condition. The equipment was now going to be going overseas to Ukraine and needed to be wrapped properly to make the journey.
The lead contractor in charge of making this equipment safe contacted Atlantic Shrink Wrap and discussed his needs and time frame for services. We had a two day window to travel to VA and get the job done. We also managed to co-ordinate the job with enough time left to get to view the launch of the Antares rocket.
Each of the two pieces of equipment needed to be completely padded and “cocoon” wrapped using our premium 12 mil thick flame retardant material. And they had to make it over the road by truck transport and then overseas by ship.
Upon delivery of our finished shrink wrap the customer told us that he had never seen it done that good before. We are always happy to show our expertise. Another job well done and happy customer.
