Heatshrink wrapping .
For secure, sturdy and protective wrapping, heat shrink film has to be the most secure.
Polythene heat shrink is an LDPE film with a shrink additive added. The method of shrinking the film is simple and requires a Ripack heat shrink gas gun to apply heat. There are a few heat shrink guns on the market and over the years Ripack has proved to be the workhorse in the industry.
When choosing a heat gun for shrink wrap one consideration is the number of pallets per day you will be shrink wrapping. Heat shrink guns have different wattages depending on the amount of heat required.
One question we get asked is how do you prevent the heat gun from burning holes in the film.
The key point of heat shrink film is that it shrinks when it is cooling down not when it’s warming up.
So the heat is applied only until the film texture changes.
