Learn All About Shrink Bundling Film

9/17/15

Shrink wrap is a material made of polymer plastic film that shrinks when heat is applied to it. Utilized in a number of applications, from the palletization of freight to temporarily sealing damaged buildings or roofs, shrink wrap is highly versatile. Because of its versatility, a number of unique types of shrink wrap have been developed to handle specific use cases.

PVC Shrink Film

PVC shrink film is created from polyvinyl chloride, one of the most commonly produced plastics in the world. Typically used on small, non-edible items such as CDs, DVDs, electronics packaging and books, PVC shrink wrap was once the most popular shrink wrap.

Polyolefin Shrink Film

Replacing PVC as the go-to shrink film material, polyolefin has the benefit of creating a stronger seal, more flexible storage and, perhaps most importantly, it is safer and cleaner to produce. Utilized in a much larger range of applications, polyolefin shrink wrap is used for everything that PVC shrink film is used for along with hundreds of additional uses. From wrapping medical products for the pharmaceutical industry to safeguarding the quality of packaged products for the food industry, polyolefin shrink film’s uses are wide-ranging and comprehensive.
