We utilize ultraviolet inhibitive (UVI) film, which forms an impermeable barrier around any commodity when shrunken with a propane fired heat gun. ZAP shrink films form a tough, taut, and weatherproof barrier that will protect your products from the corrosive effects of the elements.
Shrink wrapping provides economical, long-lasting outdoor protection at fractions of the cost of indoor storage while lasting longer than tarps or other protection methods. Snow, ice and rain slide off the slick exterior surface and airborne dirt and grime is kept away, sealing out the elements or harmful airborne particles.
Proper Materials – It is extremely difficult to distinguish the quality of shrink film by visual observation. The amount of ultra-violet inhibitors, anti-static agents, and other features of the material cannot be seen, so they require expert attention to be properly selected and utilized. It is a common misconception is that a thicker film is a better film; in reality, that may not be the case when you consider break strength and elongation once the shrink wrapping process has begun.
Proper Application Technique – There are 3 basic methods of shrink wrapping an object: encapsulation, framing, and taping. The method used is determined by its size and shape; under what conditions it will be shipped or stored; and the length of storage or transportation. It’s crucial to determine the proper wrapping method to effectively protect the object from any harsh elements it may encounter.
Proper Training & Experience – The people doing the shrink wrapping must be properly trained in the use of the heat gun and aware of the dangers involved in using propane flame. Proper preparation is essential to protect against cave-in and moisture damage during storage or transportation.
