What is shrink film?

Shrink film packaging is a material made up of a blend of low density polyethylene, which is plastic that is used in a variety of packaging applications. Shrink film is used to provide a tamper-evident seal, as well as an aesthetic appeal to products.

Shrink film can be clear or printed with branding and other information. Shrink film manufacturers produce shrink film in a variety of thicknesses to meet the needs of different packaging applications. It’s often used in combination with other materials, such as cardboard or paper, to create a more durable package.

Shrink film wrap is also commonly used to package batteries, electronics, and other small products. shrink film provides a tamper-evident seal that helps to protect these products from damage during shipping and handling.

It is also used in the medical industry to package sterile supplies and equipment, which helps to ensure that these items are clean and free of contaminants before use. Shrink film is also used in the construction industry to protect materials from weather damage during transportation and storage. Shrink film is available in a variety of colours, sizes, and thicknesses to meet the needs of different applications in a range of industries. 

What’s the difference between shrink film and stretch film?

Shrink film is a type of plastic film that shrinks when heated. It is commonly used to shrink-wrap products, making them more compact and easier to store or transport.

Stretch film, on the other hand, is a type of plastic film that is stretched and then wrapped around products. This type of film is often used to secure products together or to provide extra protection during shipping and handling.

How do you use shrink film?

There are a few different ways to shrink wrap something using shrink film.

The most common method is to use a heat gun or other heat source to shrink the film around the item. You can also use a shrinkwrap machine, which will do the job more quickly and evenly.

Another way to shrink wrap something is to use a vacuum sealer. This method is often used for food preservation, but can also be used for shrink wrapping. Simply place the item in the shrink film and then seal it using the vacuum sealer. This will remove all the air from the shrink film and create a tight seal around the item.

Whatever method you choose, shrink wrapping can be a great way to protect items from damage or keep them clean and dust-free. Contact our team at Surepak to place your next order of shrink film tubing and packaging today.
