Atlantic Shrink Wrapping is a company that is located in Pasadena, Maryland. Shrink wrap is a type of polyethylene plastic wrap that is designed to shrink when it is exposed to heat. It has many different applications. It can be used for sealing products and bags, construction applications and food services.
When heat is applied to shrink wrap, it will shrink and form a tight seal with what it is secured to or wrapped around. The plastic is made stronger through the process of shrinking. If is installed properly, then it will be able to withstand weather as well as other elements.
Shrink wrapping can be used to conceal or cover items, provide protection from debris and dirt, protect against the weather and protect long and short-term storage. Atlantic Shrink Wrapping is proud to help the women and men who fight for this country. They recently produced a shrink wrap for the 100 Foot Long Cutter Tiger Shark.
The United States Coast Guard had to have their ship in a controlled environment for the purpose of painting the ship and water blasting during the coldest days of the year.
Thanks to Atlantic Shrink Wrapping’s experience with shrink wrapping scaffolding, they were awarded a major contract to shrink wrap and erect a scaffold building around the United States Coast Guard Cutter named Tiger Shark. The building was 105 feet long, 40 feet tall and 40 feet wide. It is estimated that 16,000 square feet of shrink wrap material was used as a cover for the scaffolding.
Atlantic Shrink Wrapping’s crew put in an 18 hour shift in order to ensure that the shrink wrapping was done right. The coast guard also work hard to double check everything. This building was a major success for the yard. It was used for six long weeks before it was disassembled.
