Shrink Wrap Your Boat Or Any Big Item Maybe you have been driving down the highway and seen cars, boats or items protected inside of a white plastic material and wondered the way they got that way. Covering things around the house is much easier than covering something like a yacht. The shrink wrap you have at home is put on using your hands, while business of shrink wrapping industrial sized items often involves a shrink wrap machine. Learning the process of 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, consists of polymer plastic film. This film comes in various thicknesses, often between 6 and 12 millimeters. The polymer plastic film is elastic when it is warm, that allows it to be stretched over large and oddly shaped items such as boats, small buildings, cars, and the pallets of a semi-truck. When the plastic is at this warm state, automated equipment stretches it around the boat, car, or building in question. It is then heated as soon as the item is protected. This is accomplished with either a heat gun or a heat tunnel. The warmth from the gun or tunnel causes the plastic to contract tightly against the object it's covering. This functions as a protective barrier between your valuable object and the outside world. The plastic covering shields the object from the elements during storage or transportation. By protecting your vehicle with shrink wrap you actually are helping to maintain its value. Once the object is heated and the plastic wrap has reduced down to size, it's cooled down. The cooling process freezes the molecules of the polymer plastic in place so the plastic won't stretch or move, ensuring the very best protection possible. Till the shrink wrap is ready to be removed, the plastic will stay this way. Heat is used again which allows the molecules to the plastic film to loosen and shift. Once this occurs the film is stretchy again and can be removed from the object at will. Covering boats, cars or some other smaller objects with the shrink wrap machine is the start to what shrink wrap technology is really capable of. One example, that you might not be aware of, is to cover buildings which were damaged due to major storms or a natural disaster. They may cover walls or roofs of a building using the shrink wrap, protecting people that are inside from the terrible outside elements. Shrink wrap technology may also be useful for the containment of hazardous material, thereby protecting the population from coming into contact with something dangerous. Before you decide to 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. Talk to a shrink wrap expert to discuss the right thickness for your items should you decide that shrink wrapping is the way to go. Plus, they are able to also provide a zippered door on your shrink wrap should you have to access your items while they are being stored or transported.
