With proper training, the right equipment and the use of flame retardant shrink-wrapping film, this process can be finished with little risk of damage to customer’s boats. Shrink wrap is a low-density polyethylene cocoon used by many boaters to protect their boats during storage and land transport. LDPE is made from petroleum, a limited nonrenewable resource, and is not biodegradable. If disposed it takes up disposal capacity at landfills or trash to energy plants. LDPE boat shrink wrap can be recycled and used to manufacture new products such as plastic bags, composite timber. Recycling shrink wrap instead of disposing it may reduce overall waste disposal costs, and realizes environmental benefits over disposal.
Tufcoat industrial shrink wrap is a strong and durable plastic film that matches every protection or containment need for transport and storage. We manufacture it in a range of film-sizes. On long road and sea journeys, shrink wrapping prevents damage from extended exposure to heavy weather and road grime. Unlike a tarpaulin, because the shrink wrap fits so tightly, it cannot flap or chafe, which is the secret of its durability. Whether you are transporting your asset by low-loader, trailer or as deck freight it will become exposed to the elements, environmental factors and other hazards. Shrink wrap is a recyclable packaging solution that is strong enough for large, high-volume packaging needs.
