Protective packaging for heavy loads Why use a shrink film?

In general, the main reason for changing from stretch film to shrink-wrap is the weight of the loads to protect. The technical excellence of the shrink-wrap available on the market make it possible to adjust the thickness of the film, its composition and how much it shrinks to the load in question.

Shrink film and heavy goods, a perfect combination

Shrink-wrap is available in a maximum thickness of 300 microns. In general, for shrink covers, the average thickness varies between 110 and 150 microns. Using this type of thickness, the majority of the products and weight supported by the pallet are covered.

To group together heavy loads, it is sometimes possible to use flat film and the way shrink-wrap can be sealed makes it possible to use several layers to protect the load.

By way of comparison, stretch film has a thickness of around 20 microns, which means it would require a huge number of successive layers to achieve an identical thickness and is not water-resistant or able to properly stabilise the load.

Moreover, our bi-oriented shrink film allows heavy load to be held on the pallet. The load is maintained on both ways: horizontally and vertically. It is an important information because heavy products can be unstable: piled up products or move the center of gravity. You can move, shake or tilt your heavy load, it will stay fixed on the pallet.

Heavy loads are often related to industrial goods, machines, equipment or vehicles. The technical excellence of shrink-wrap makes it possible not only to keep your load stable, but to protect your product against corrosion, UV light and a certain amount of rubbing on the paintwork.

Anti-corrosive films are available, which diffuse protective agents during transportation. Opaque films with an anti-UV coating make it possible to protect your paintwork and seals from UV damage. Finally, films that include areas covered in a non-woven material make it possible to protect any paintwork that risks being rubbed against during transportation.

We often need to move it from point A to point B. If your load is not well wrapped, it can be fold because of the jerks. With our bi-oriented shrink-wrap the heavy loads are fully stable and protect. A protective packaging for heavy products allows to be efficient and economic : financial gain and time and energy savings. There are no returns of non-conforming or altered goods, so lower transport and production costs. Your days are optimised.

Our bi-oriented shrink wrap acts like a second skin on your heavy load. They’ll be safe and secure.
