Shrink wrap provides a protective shield for a variety of items, ranging from small food products to large industrial equipment. It protects against moisture and dust, makes labeling easier and faster, provides tamper resistance, and offers an attractive finishing touch for any package. It's an affordable and effective way to add a professional touch to any packaged item.
There are many different types of shrink film available, with varying attributes, including onset temperature, free shrink, shrink force, temperature range, memory, and slip. The choice of shrink film is based on the specific needs and requirements of each application.
Hot slip shrink film is a type of POF (polyolefin) heat-shrinkable film
that has good slip properties. It can be used for any packaging machine and can be a replacement for L-sealers and side sealers in some applications, as it can seal in both directions simultaneously with little or no wrinkles. This film also has a low odor and is easy to use.
A shrink film is made from a thermoplastic polymer, which means that it can be formed into a wide range of shapes and sizes with relative ease. It is usually a clear or colorless plastic that is sealed together using a special sealer or heat gun. The sealer or heat gun applies heat to one side of the film and then is pulled down and around the package, creating a seal that will prevent air from escaping. The shrink film can then be run through a heated tunnel to cause it to shrink, giving the package a finished appearance.
Shrink wrap is most often used to provide a finishing touch for packaged items such as food, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals. It can be used as an overwrap on products or cartons, and it can also be applied as a barrier to protect against corrosion or water damage. It can also be used to add a tamper-evident seal or as a label wrap. It is also useful in disaster contingency and relief projects for damaged buildings or roofs.
