Proper ventilation designed in the shrink wrapping of boats

Shrink wrap provides a level of protection and storage convenience for your boat that covering it with a tarp or keeping it in your garage just can’t afford. It protects your boat from damaging ultraviolet rays. In addition, where a tarp can get heavy and sag with snow, or get holes that allow damaging snow, ice, and water to get inside your boat, shrink wrap is designed to warm with the sun and is angled specifically to let snow and water slide off it without damage. Shrink wrap also provides better ventilation than a tarp, keeping your boat dry during the winter season. Finally, while a garage provides much of the same protection, an unused boat can take up quite a bit of space that can’t be used for an entire season. Shrink wrapping your boat means you can store it anywhere during the winter months, and you can even move it if you need to use the space for something else. The major advantage of having a boat cover is that you can use it season after season. It may be more of an investment than a single shrink wrapping, but a good quality cover will last you for years to come. When the cover is tied down and supported properly, it will extend the life of your boat by allowing water and snow to run off properly. A nice cover will offer protection from the sun rays as well, keeping your boat looking shiny and new.

Recycling of shrink wrapping boats to produce new products

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.
