White, clear and blue shrinkwrap
American Shrinkwrap is a linear, low-density extruded polyethylene material. An important additive put into our shrinkwrap during extrusion is ultra-violet inhibitor (UVI). Not only does it prevent UV rays from damaging the item underneath the cover, but it also prevents premature breakdown of the shrinkwrap itself (especially in exterior applications).
Our shrinkwrap is stocked in white and, in select sizes, clear and blue.
When purchasing shrinkwrap be aware that some extruders use additives in their shrinkwrap to reduce their costs, or use reprocessed resin in the plastic. These practices seriously alter the quality and effectiveness of the shrinkwrap. American Shrinkwrap film is 100% virgin material. American Shrinkwrap’s film is a specially formulated blend that provides superior strength, longevity, impact strength, initial tear resistance and superior heat seal.
Shrinkwrap, with the use of a heat gun, shrinks and conforms to whatever structure and/or item is underneath it. Our shrinkwrap shrinks in both length and width up to 50% x 50%. Shrinking the plastic causes its consistency to change dramatically, making it thicker and very taut.
Protective shrinkwrap cover
When properly applied American Shrinkwrap provides a remarkable protective cover around any object. It is a form fitting, almost impenetrable barrier that resists wind, rain and other elements. Because the cover is heat sealed, it provides complete protection even under the most adverse environmental conditions but can be removed in minutes.
The uses for American Shrinkwrap are in almost every segment of the industrial and commercial marketplace. Manufacturing, the storage and shipment of production goods, aircraft and automobiles, protection from the elements during transportation or storage, pre-fabricated houses and buildings – the possible uses for American Shrinkwrap are endless.
