Shrink Wrap for Military Projects

Military | Energy | Aviation | Commercial | Transportation | Marine | Historic Preservation

Atlantic Shrink Wrap is often called upon by different branches of our US Armed Forces, Department of Defense (DOD) Contractors or private companies working with the military to shrink wrap and protect items of all kinds. The many advantages of shrink wrapping are being utilized by the military for multiple reasons. ASI has the experts in installing quality shrink wrap covers. Shrink wrapping is great to cover or conceal something, protect it from dirt, or protect it from Mother Nature during storage or when being transported.

Shrink wrapping military items brings a whole other type of attention and responsibility to hand. Some military items are machines of war ready to be put into action to aid our service men and women. A scratch to its camouflage or damage of any kind could create delays in its delivery. This would be unacceptable. Other items are sophisticated computer driven machines where any breech of the plastic can damage hundreds of thousands of dollars in equipment. And, yet other items are deemed secret or sensitive and must be handled accordingly.

At Atlantic Shrink Wrap we understand all of these situations and act for the best interest and requests of our customer.

Each wrap is designed for the specific task at hand. This comes down to the many different types of padding we use as well as the different types of plastics and tapes.

Military items might require a short term wrap for going over the road and then being immediately removed. In this case, we discuss the options of using different materials and short term tapes; which reduces the shipping weight and required installation time.

Other items will need very heavy plastic to last longer against extreme conditions and environmental hazards. And still others will require special corrosion fighting materials such as our unique VCI (volatile corrosion inhibitor) shrink wrap.
