Cover All Of YourValuables In Shrink Wrap You may have been driving down the road and seen cars, boats or items covered in a white plastic material and wondered how they got like that. Shrink wrapping a yacht, for instance, isn't as easy as covering the small items in your own home that you would like to cover on a day to day basis. The shrink wrap you have at home is put on with your hands, while business of shrink wrapping industrial sized items often involves a shrink wrap machine. Knowing the steps involved in shrink wrapping large items will allow you to decide if this process is best for you and your valuable items. Shrink wrap, or shrink film, is constructed from polymer plastic film. You may see this film between 6 to 12 millimeters thick. The polymer plastic film is elastic if it is warm, allowing it to be stretched over large and oddly shaped items including boats, small buildings, cars, and the pallets of any semi-truck. When the plastic is in this warm state, automated equipment stretches it all around the boat, car, or building in question. As soon as the item is wrapped it's heated. This is accomplished with either a heat gun or perhaps a heat tunnel. The warmth in the gun or tunnel causes the plastic to contract tightly against the object it's covering. The plastic works as a barrier between your valuable object and the harsh conditions of the outside world. The plastic covering shields the item from the elements during storage or transportation. By protecting your vehicle with shrink wrap you are making an effort to maintain its value. Once the heating process is over and also the plastic wrap has been shrunk, the object is cooled. The plastic won't move or stretch because the cooling process freezes the molecules of the polymer plastic in position insuring the most effective protection. The plastic film will remain like this until the time comes to take off the shrink wrap. Heat is again applied with a machine which allows the molecules of the plastic film to shift. The plastic will get stretchy again and you will be able to be removed. Covering boats, cars or other smaller objects using the shrink wrap machine is the beginning to what shrink wrap technology is really capable of. One example, that you may not be aware of, is to cover buildings which were damaged due to major storms or a natural disaster. By covering a damaged building wall or roof in shrink wrap, individuals in the building remain shielded from the dangerous elements outside. They also can protect people from coming into exposure to something that could be hazardous to us by containing those materials inside the shrink wrap. Before you jump in with both feet, as they say, you must do your research on the complete process to make certain shrink wrapping your valuables is best for you. If you do decide to have your valuables wrapped for protection, speak with a shrink wrap expert to customize your shrink wrap film so that you get the optimum thickness for your needs. Additionally, ask about having a zippered door added to your shrink wrap if you foresee the need to access your property during storage or transportation.
