What Is Shrink Wrapping?

Shrink wrap is a polyethylene plastic that is formulated to shrink when heat is applied to it. Shrink wrap is used in many different applications throughout the world from sealing bags and products, to food services to construction applications.

When Shrink wrap plastic is exposed to heat, it shrinks, forming a tight seal to whatever it is wrapped around and or secured to. The shrinking process makes the plastic stronger, when installed properly, allowing it to withstand weather and other elements.

Shrink wrapping may be used to:

  • Cover or conceal items
  • Provide protection from dirt or debris
  • Protect against weather including rain, hail, storm, sun and wind
  • Protect for short or long term storage
  • Cover items while being transported

How Is Shrink Wrapping Done?

Shrink wrap is applied over or around the intended item by our skilled team at ASI. It is then heated by a heat gun, conforming to the edges and contours of your chosen object, sealing it securely away from dirt, dust and the elements.

What Can Shrink Wrap Be Used For?

Virtually anything can be shrink wrapped. Shrink wrap can be used to wrap buildings. It can wrap roofs after hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes and other disasters. Shrink wrap can be used for environmental containment to facilitate safe removal of asbestos, lead and other hazards. Atlantic Shrink Wrap has wrapped the above as well as the more common uses such as preserving equipment, vehicles — we preserve many boats over the winter months in the Mid-Atlantic region — and products for shipping or storage.
