Atlantic Shrink Wrap Inc. – Space Age Services for NASA
Thinking outside the box is what the professionals at Atlantic Shrink Wrap Inc. do best. This is proven by their broad range of clientele from Pasadena, California to Wallop Island, Virginia and Maryland, Atlantic Shrink Wrap Inc. is the company chosen most often to provide shrink wrap services for heavy duty and over-sized equipment. Recently, NASA contacted Atlantic Shrink Wrap Inc. when it needed to transport support equipment to be used for the fuel system for the newest Antares Rocket. Atlantic Shrink Wrap provided excellent quality shrink wrap for the rocket launch to the International Space Station. Services provided to NASA make Atlantic Shrink Wrap Inc. stand out among competitors in the shrink wrap industry.

How Does Atlantic Shrink Wrap Inc. Do It?
Shrink wrap is the innovative way to insure safe freight deliveries. It’s been used for years at warehousing and distribution centers to protect fragile shipments from damages and costly replacements. Atlantic Shrink Wrap Inc. took this one step further through over a decade of extensive shrink wrap experience. When Christopher Dunn and Dustin Hoover started Atlantic Shrink Wrap Inc. in 2001, they realized it was crucial to reach out to military and government and offer their excellent quality service.

After the NASA shrink wrap project was completed, Atlantic Shrink Wrap received praise and appreciation for their service.

NASA Shrink Wrapping Services – Complex and Vital
The NASA shrink wrapping services required cocoon wrapping. Previously, each of the two massive pieces of equipment were wrapped improperly for transport to Wallop Island, Virginia. NASA’s concern was that shipping this equipment from Wallop Island to the Ukraine necessitated absolute safety while in transit. Atlantic Shrink Wrap experts went to Wallop Island to manage the NASA shrink wrapping project. It took Atlantic Shrink Wrap just two days to complete the shrink wrapping services. The equipment was fully protected with shrink wrap using 12 mil thick, flame-retardant material of premium quality. The NASA shrink wrapping service is another accomplishment by Atlantic Shrink Wrap Inc, a recognized leader in the shrink wrap industry.

Did You Know About Our Boat Shrink Wrapping Services?

The winter of 2013-14 has been a rough one, bringing the Chesapeake Bay region above-average amounts of snow and ice. This kind of weather is hard on everyone, including boats.

Boats stored for the winter or undergoing repairs on land need protection from the elements, especially in the mid-Atlantic area. The Bay area’s weather this year produced enough precipitation to cause problems for boat owners who neglected to protect their vessels last fall. Even those who used a tarp cover may find small swamps belowdecks when they open the companionway hatch in a few weeks.

They probably didn’t know that shrink wrapping is the best way to protect any vessel from the effects of rain, snow, sun and wind.

Here at Atlantic Shrink Wrapping Inc., we have been in business since 2001 and have wrapped a lot of boats. We have become experts in protecting sailboats, military vessels, aircraft and ground vehicles, and nuclear power plant components.

Headquartered in Annapolis, Maryland, we protect boats docked anywhere, from nearby Pasadena, Maryland, to Delaware, Pennsylvania, Virginia and around the world.

ASW’s internal support system helps our shrink wrapping products stand up to heavy snow, rain and ice, exactly the type of weather that the mid-Atlantic experienced this winter. Our shrink wrapping extends over the deck and well down on the sides of a vessel, channelling water where it belongs, on to the ground and not into a boat’s cabin.

We use products that maintain enough ventilation to prevent potentially damaging condensation inside a boat stored during the winter. Our anti-UV products protect against the damaging rays of the sun that contribute to fiberglass cracking and expensive repairs.

Our Bullet Wrap is nearly indestructible for this application because it was designed to stand up to extremely rough conditions. This toughness makes it our product of choice for wrapping boats prior to transport. Because a boat’s wrapping needs to be aerodynamic to prevent wind damage, we use a strapping system rather than internal propping which collapse under the stresses of highway speeds.

Shrink Wrap For Military Projects

Shrink wrapping is an inexpensive yet efficient method of protecting sensitive equipment from damage during transport or in times of storage. The United States Department of Defense often calls in the services of Atlantic Shrink Wrapping, Inc. (ASI) when it becomes necessary to cover heavy equipment.

This type of protective covering is preferred by the military because it keeps equipment free from dirt and dust, light exposure, and moisture. This is especially important in the aviation industry. Atlantic Shrink Wrapping provides complete protective covering service for aircraft as well as for tanks and other artillery, transport vehicles, and bulky communications equipment.

The Benefits Of Shrink Wrap Protection
Shrink wrap plastic is lightweight and easy to work with. The modern polymers used by Atlantic Shrink Wrapping have been developed to provide an efficient moisture barrier, prevent dangerous light frequencies from damaging equipment, and seal the insides from airborne particulates.

Corrosion is caused by the effects of moisture and organic/inorganic compounds floating freely in the atmosphere. One of the specialized plastic films developed for ASI contains a highly effective additive known as Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor – abbreviated as VCI – that prevents these unwanted agents from coming into contact with metal.

Shrink wrap is often used as a concealing material. When an airplane, helicopter, or other vehicle is covered with white plastic, positive identification becomes virtually impossible. This is extremely important when transporting heavy equipment overseas or on exposed transport flatbeds.

Expert Teams Of Wrap Specialists
Located in Pasadena, Maryland, ASI contracts with military and paramilitary departments by sending a team of experienced wrapping techs into the field. The company dispatches personnel throughout the continental United States, and the team is equipped with everything needed to complete the job.

The wrapping procedure involves sizing the material, cutting it to specific dimensions, and forming a tight cover around the equipment being protected. The wrap is very tight, much more effective than a plastic tarp. The interior atmosphere is completely separated from the outside environment. When properly covered in shrink wrap, a vehicle or piece of equipment is in effect hermetically sealed.

Setting Up A Contract
Atlantic Shrink Wrapping, Inc. places job bids with the military and other clients. However, all interested parties can contact the company for a cost estimate for specialized services. Although the firm is headquartered in Maryland, it stores material all across the nation and is known for its rapid mobilization of personnel and prompt service wherever the client is located.

Transportation

Transporting oversize loads safely is a major logistical challenge. Atlantic Shrink Wrapping Inc is a company that can offer some peace of mind for any business that ships large items over a long distance. Shrink wrapping is an effective method of completely sealing shipments from external elements faced during a journey by rail, boat and tractor trailer trucks. For example, highway roads are full of salt, grime, mud and dirt that can easily damage unprotected shipments. Similarly, exposed items that are transported by ship can be damaged by salty water and even the moist air that is full of salty evaporation. Rail transport exposes unprotected shipments to dust, grime, pollen, smoke and other elements along the railroad tracks.

Traditional tarp does not offer any effective protection for oversize loads that are transported. Atlantic Shrink Wrapping Inc can properly shrink wrap any type of large load for long distance transportation. The U.S. based companies provides service nationwide ranging from communities in Maryland to Pasadena, California. Atlantic Shrink wrap services prepare freight shipments for safe and reliable movement through all major freight transportation methods. Buildings, construction equipment, vehicles, trailers and lumber are some of the items that can be shrink wrapped.

The shrink wrapping process is relatively simple in practice, but it requires the expertise and knowledge of a company such as Atlantic Shrink Wrapping Inc. The process begins by applying plastic polyethylene covers over an item. After the item is loosely covered with the plastic wrap, heat is applied to tightly seal and wrap the plastic over the item. Of course, some shrink wrapping procedures require special requests to accommodate the needs of specific items. For example, holes may have to be left to transport heavy items by crane. Interior materials inside the shrink wrap may need to be installed to absorb moisture. The thickness of the plastic shrink wrap can also be varied to provide sufficient protection for oversize load shipments. Additionally, plastic shrink wrap blocks out UV radiation from the sun, something that traditional tarp can’t do well. Volatile corrosion applications can also be applied to shrink wrap surfaces.
