Mr. Shrinkwrap has Your Solutions for Construction & Scaffolding Shrink Wrap

By Brenden Hojara July 23, 2021 62 Views

It does not take a lot of effort to remember when scaffolding was both exposed and unsightly. There may have been some blue tarps, possibly some netting, virtually anything that would provide rudimentary protection. Thanks to advancements in technology and engineering, shrink wrapping has become the go-to material for commercial construction sites. How did that happen and why should you consider construction and scaffolding shrink wrap solutions? Mr. Shrinkwrap has the answers…

Reimagined Solutions

Chances are you already know that industrial shrink wrapping is a polymer plastic film that shrinks to form a closed seal when heat is applied. While it has been around as a product protection and shipping/storage solution for decades, investing in commercial shrink wrap has only recently become popular, even with all the benefits it provides. No more bungee cords or ripped plastic flapping in the wind. Commercial shrink film is extremely robust, taking on the most powerful gusts, and only requiring replacement if damaged during construction…and even that is super easy.

What’s in it for you and your crew?

Among the reasons why shrink wrapping has become so widely used in scaffolding construction is the tremendous protection it provides against the elements. When you wrap your scaffolding in industrial shrink wrap, your crew can continue to work in all weather conditions. The film protects against rain and wind. If you have a hood construction installed, your team can work and remain dry. And the shrink wrap retains heat in the winter, making the temperature within the scaffolding far more accommodating for a full day’s work, increasing productivity.

While still primarily thought of as a packaging and shipping solution, there are many more reasons to consider industrial shrink wrapping for your construction site:

Fire Resistance

Shrink wrapping is proven fire-resistant, increasing the safety of your projects, and promoting generally safer working conditions.

UV Resistance

Industrial shrink wrap helps protect your crew from the dangers of prolonged sun exposure.

Water Resistance

Keep your scaffolding dry during the dampest of rainy seasons.

Dust Containment

Limit the amount of dust being scattered to surrounding areas and enhance your professional reputation as a company.

Flexibility

Use commercial shrink wrap to accommodate any size, shape, or form. It will quickly mold perfectly to any shape.

Increased Security

Protect your site against criminal intrusion. It is much more difficult to access materials and tools on the scaffold. With the building and its contents hidden from public view, criminals passing by find shrink-wrapped buildings not worth the risk.

Recyclable

Construction shrink wrap from Mr. Shrinkwrap is completely recyclable, minimizing your environmental impact, and can be quickly dismantled at the close of a project.

Make a Better Impression

Shrink wrap scaffolding makes for a tight finished look, creating a more professional image and generating positive reactions from neighboring businesses and the general public.


Mr. Shrinkwrap has everything you need for commercial shrink wrapping that will enable your team to work in comfort with minimal disruption to the surrounding area. Of course, it is also important to choose a reputable company, like Mr. Shrinkwrap, for all your commercial scaffolding needs. We make getting a quote easy.

Make Manual Pallet Wrapping a Physical Hardship of the Past

By Brenden Hojara May 28, 2021 3647 Views No comments

The costs of labor are not just in payroll. Manual labor costs include Workers' Compensation claims, hours lost due to repetitive stress injuries, as well as the speed with which your business can manually prepare orders compared to your competition (who might not be so restrained). Whether it is individual requirements or competitive disadvantage, a "by-hand" approach becomes more and more expensive as your business grows.


The further we get into the 21st Century, the more efficient processes are the name of the game, and installing a stretch wrap machine transitions from "fun to consider" to a "must have!" While not a small investment, they can make a huge difference to your storage, presentation, work safety, and more...all of which will ultimately save you a great deal in time, space, and (it cannot be understated) money.


So how do you know you're ready to make the switch from a manual pallet wrapping process to an automated stretch wrap machine?


# 1 - Growth


The more labor-intensive the work, the more diminishing the returns. Conversely, an investment in automation continuously pays for itself over time in faster production and reduced outlay for medical issues. If your pallet count is 5 or more a day, or if you are buying hand film in bulk quantities, it's time for an upgrade. When you have a growing business, you have to act fast if you want to offset escalating costs against client demands. Having the right tools on hand will both reduce the labor on a per-item basis, and reduce the physical toll to your workforce for every job.


# 2 - Expediency


The unfortunate fact is that most customers equate speed to quality. A process mired in manual labor is rarely the solution to meet an urgent client's expectations. Instead, stretch wrap machines paired with high-quality machine-grade stretch film will ensure the ease and speed necessary to keep even the most high-demand manufacturing moving at a profitable pace.


# 3 - Health and Safety (Internally and Externally)


Stretch wrap machines are enormously popular in a variety of industries as they reduce manual handling, which equates to fewer safety risks. Production and Risk Managers learned long ago that stretch wrapping is an efficient and safe process that can drastically reduce the risks of injury and contamination, as well as keeping products preserved and can be ready-to-go at a moment's notice.


You Have Options

Even if you’ve checked all the boxes, it’s fundamental that you invest in the right stretch wrap machine for your needs. There is a wide range of solutions on the market, including semi-manual, semi-automatic, automatic and robotic options, depending on your desired output.


For moderate pallet wrapping needs, Mr. Shrinkwrap offers "The Wrapman." The Wrapman is a semi-automatic mobile stretch wrapper that provides maximum protection to your product with half the packaging costs. How? The Wrapman comes with a motorized carriage that pre-stretches the film up to 200%(!). Ideal for light and/or unstable loads, there is no effort required by the operator, as the stretching of the film is done entirely by the machine. Click here to find out more about the Wrapman, or give us a call and we can directly discuss your options.


Mr Shrinkrwap is celebrating 30 years' of industry experience, putting us in the ideal position to help you answer each of these questions.

The Future of Sustainable Shrink Wrap

By Mr. Shrinkwrap April 22, 2021 2787 Views No comments

The Future of Sustainable Shrink Wrap

We all understand the problem of plastics when placed on our nation's landfills. Plastic waste contributes to the damage to the environment, and this is because the majority of it isn't biodegradable. Harmful chemicals are released into the soil and the surrounding atmosphere, and the environmental damage is long-lasting, for both human life and local wildlife.

Thankfully, a number of developments have been made in plastic manufacturing, and as such, eco-friendly plastics are now becoming available. Also known as bio-based plastics, these sustainable alternatives to traditional plastic products are biodegradable and reduce the threat to the environment. Many companies are now using bio-plastics when packaging and protecting their products and it is something that you should also consider.

These developments extend to the world of shrink wrap. Many of us use it on a regular basis, often to seal the products we use at home and in our businesses, as it can preserve and protect our valuable items from rotting. It is widely used across a range of industries, including the marine industry when protecting boats from moisture and mildew. As shrink wrap is now being designed with the safety of the environment in mind, we can all protect our goods without the need to worry about the long-term effects to the planet.

The advances in technology extend to the thickness of shrink wrap too. Steps have been taken within the industry to reduce the thickness and this dramatically reduces the problem of plastic waste. These thinner films have no effect on the strength of the plastic so customers can still be assured of the strong integrity of the product when packaging or covering their items.

REACT: Eco-Friendly Shrink Wrap

Biodegradable films are a big step forward for the plastic industry as manufacturers seek to produce more sustainable and environmentally friendly products. At Mr. Shrinkwrap, we are doing all we can to reduce our environmental impact and that is why we are now the proud stockist of React shrink wrap. It is designed to return safely to the environment so it should be the preferred choice for anyone looking to 'go green.'

How REACT works

During the degradation process, the energy from the film is harnessed and converted into clean, renewable, and sustainable energy. This makes it one of the safest and most renewable shrink wrap products available today. As it degrades, the wrap releases BIOGAS, and this is collected by the landfill capping and gas collection system. The gas is then converted to co-gen electricity, which both reduces emissions and the carbon footprint. To reach maximum sustainable potential, the landfill does need to have capping, gas collection, and co-gen operations.

Contact Us

By switching to technologically advanced eco wrap, you can do your part to protect the environment. To find out more about the sustainable packaging and protective materials we can provide, get in touch with us today.

At Mr. ShrinkWrap we are dedicated to providing sustainable packaging solutions to our customers. This Earth Day we are happy to introduce, REACT! A whole new line of eco-friendly products starting with REACT Wrap.

What Heat Gun is Best to Remove Paint

What Heat Gun is Best to Remove Paint

What Heat Gun is Best to Remove Paint

Are you needing to remove old paint from metal, bricks, or other surfaces? These surfaces are ideal for an electric heat gun application and Mr. Shrinkwrap has you covered!

While there are many options for removing paint from a surface, using an electric heat gun is one of the most efficient.


The idea here is that you apply heat to the paint to soften the layers and then simply peel or scrape the unwanted paint away! Magic! (or perhaps, science...either way it is still cool and very easy)!


Electric heat guns are ideal when wanting to remove paint from the following surfaces:

  • Metal
  • Brick
  • Wood
  • Concrete
  • Stone

Heat guns can be used in indoor and outdoor applications. There are a few key safety precautions that should be taken before using an electric heat gun to remove paint.

Safety First!

Before starting any project where a heat gun will be used, be sure to dress appropriately. This will include but is not limited to, closed-toed shoes, long sleeve shirt, long pants, gloves, and protective eyewear.

Pro Tip!

Mr. Shrinkwrap recommends using welding-style gloves. We offer several appropriate options here!


If you think there is any possibility that the paint you are removing could have lead in it be sure to wear a respirator to protect your lungs. Even if the paint does not have lead in it Mr. Shrinkwrap highly recommends wearing a face mask or covering so you do not breathe in paint fumes.


When using an electric heat gun be sure to allow time for the heat gun to heat up prior to starting and then of course allow a reasonable amount of time for the heat gun to cool off before putting it away.


Be sure to be mindful of any exposed skin and never point a heat gun at yourself or anyone else.

Electric Heat Gun Options

Mr. Shrinkwrap is a distributor for three electric heat gun brands:


Master heat guns are designed for long-term, quality use in personal, professional, and industrial settings. Master brand heat guns are heavy-duty, rugged, reliable, and provides high-volume airflow. Master heat guns range in price from $49.00 - $122.00.


Steinel heat guns are known for precision control, versatility, longevity, and peak performance. Steinel offers general use, professional and industrial strength heat guns depending on your needs. Steinel heat guns range from $69.00 - $450.00 depending on power, carrying case, and accessories.


UltraHeat heat guns are lightweight and easy to use and offer quick heat-up and quiet operation. UltraHEAT tools are extremely versatile and a great value for most intermittent applications. UltraHeat heat guns range in price from $39.00 - $95.00.


When deciding exactly which make or model is right for you, we highly recommend speaking with one of our heat gun experts.

What heat tools are best to wrap my particular products?

What heat tools are best to wrap my particular products?

Are you a small business owner who needs to wrap your products?

Perhaps you make handcrafted bar soaps or candles and need an efficient way to wrap your products before shipping from your Etsy shop. Well, Mr. Shrinkwrap has you covered!

Mr. Shrinkwrap has all of the tools you will need to successfully wrap your products to keep them free of dust or debris while providing a clean and professional look.

Your primary tools will include:

  • Hand Operated Impulse Sealer
  • Heat Guns
  • Polyolefin Shrink Film

Hand Operated Impulse Sealers

Impulse sealers are easy to operate and create a strong bond on various types of plastic or plastic-coated packaging. These sealers allow you to get as close to the product inside the packaging before sealing which creates a clean and professional look. Impulse sealers do not require any “warm-up” time making them ready to use as soon as they are turned on.

Pro Tip!

The experts at Mr. Shrinkwrap recommend selecting the 16” wide Impluse Sealer especially if it is your first one as this size can handle almost any job.

Impulse sealers range in price from $123 - $264.

If you are needing sealers for mid to high-volume production, Mr. Shrinkwrap offers other Compact Sealing Systems.

Heat Guns

While impulse sealers simply apply heat from a bar to seal a plastic bag or another plastic packaging, you may be looking for a more final product appearance. If you are wanting to tightly seal plastic around your soap or other products, you will need a heat gun.

For industrial applications, Mr. Shrinkwrap recommends propane heat guns, however, for a small business or Etsy shop, electric heat guns are typically a better option.

If you are interested in learning more about our propane heat guns, read our blogs:

The Steinel UltraHeat SV 800 Heat Gun is a dual temperature electric heat gun with a low setting of 600℉ and a high setting of 950℉. This heat gun has an industrial-grade cord and can be purchased for under $50.

Self-Adhesive Collision Wrap

By February 1, 2021 467 Views No comments

Collision Wrap

What is Self-Adhesive Collision Wrap?

Collision Wrap (a.ka. windshield wrap or wreck wrap) allows the user to quickly and easily cover damaged areas with a watertight and UV resistant plastic film barrier. Self-Adhesive Collision Wrap is coated on one side with a high-tack adhesive and adheres to clean and dry surfaces such as metal, glass, or plastic, and to interior surfaces including fabric.

Collision wrap comes in four different roll widths: 18”, 24”, 36”, and 48” with lengths ranging from 100’ - 300’.

Pro Tip: While collision wrap can be used on interior surfaces it is not recommended for prolonged use. Mr. Shrinkwrap professionals advise not to leave the vehicle in direct sun or other hot environments to avoid any adhesive residue being left behind.

Who Benefits from Using Collision Wrap?

Collision wrap is primarily used by salvage companies, auto body repair businesses, dealerships, insurance agencies, and the trucking industry. By using collision wrap the value of the vehicle or other damaged equipment is preserved and is protected against further damage.

Collision wrap is especially useful when transporting a wrecked vehicle from one location to another. Depending on the type of damage, collision wrap prevents glass or other debris from falling off the vehicle and onto the road. It also helps keep loose parts from becoming dislodged and falling off during transit.

Collision wrap is also used while a vehicle or other equipment is being repaired but the damaged areas might be exposed to the elements including rain, dirt, snow, mildew, rust, or repair shop debris. While collision wrap is a temporary solution it is highly effective.

Key Features

  • Tough film
  • High-tack self-adhesive
  • Easy application
  • See-through clear plastic
  • 4 MIL thickness

Collision wrap keeps damaged vehicles and equipment safe from additional deterioration. Be sure to order your supply today!

To protect the surface of nearly anything with non-see-through film, try using Multi-Purpose Surface Protection Film instead. It offers a lot of the same great qualities and temporary protection but is made for new items and can be applied to metal, plastic, glass, fiberglass, and vinyl.

MYTH or FACT?

By January 25, 2021 424 Views No comments

Fact or Myth?

Myth: Winter weather has no impact on the function of a propane tank.

Fact: Propane contracts when it's cold. When it's extremely cold outside, the volume of propane inside your aboveground propane tank will shrink, which creates a loss of pressure.

Some people underestimate the effects of cold weather on propane tanks. When temperatures drop significantly (particularly into the negatives), propane tanks will lose pressure which can result in the propane not being able to reach the gas burner rendering it ineffective.

  • When the temperature of the gas reaches -44⁰ F, the propane no longer has the ability to convert into its gaseous form.
  • As the propane in the tank evaporates, the remaining liquid gets colder, combined with frigid outdoor temperatures the liquid propane can soon go below the freezing point of -44 inside the tank, which makes the tank unusable until thawed.
  • Cold temperatures still may also affect your propane pressure. If the pressure becomes too low, the propane inside your tank will not be able to reach your gas burner and can damage your heat tools.
  • Using a nearly empty propane tank is inefficient for shrink wrapping and can damage your heat tools. Remove tanks from service at 75-80% used.

Tips to Avoid Cold Weather Issues

  • Keep your propane tanks full. By maintaining a relatively full propane tank you will lessen the amount of shrinkage which will minimize the pressure loss.
  • Don’t cover your tank. It may seem like a good idea to wrap your tank in a typical insulated cover to maintain a warmer temperature, however, sunlight is a much more effective option.
    • If you do want to use a cover, Mr. Shrinkwrap recommends a PowerBlanket warmer.
  • Clear snow and ice from your outdoor propane tank. This includes regulators, vents, piping, and valves to prevent damage that could cause a gas leak.
  • Don’t pour warm water on the propane tank!

About PowerBlanket

Powerblanket products prevent fluids from freezing, protect critical materials and equipment, improve viscosity, optimize processes, keep personnel safe, and provide total temperature control and peace of mind.

PowerBlanket propane tank heaters provide a uniform barrier of heat across the entire tank. This heating solution reduces costs by optimizing temperatures and increasing propane tank efficiency.
