The Future of Sustainable Shrink Wrap

By Mr. Shrinkwrap April 22, 2021 1191 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.

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.

If you are looking for an electric heat gun with a little more power, Mr. Shrinkwrap has you covered!

The Steinel Professional HG 2320 E Heat Gun offers an impressive range of temperatures between 120℉ to 1,200℉. The temperature is controlled by a simple toggle featuring making is very easy to use and ensures a precise application of heat onto your wrapped products. This heat gun can be purchased for under $300.

Polyolefin Shrink Film

Now that we covered the tools you will need to wrap your product, you will definitely need the actually wrapping materials as well!

Polyolefin shrink film (POF) is the perfect product when wrapping retail items.

Let’s break down what makes POF the right choice for your products:

  • Premium quality shrink wrap
  • Made of 100% recyclable materials
  • Excellent clarity and glossy shelf appearance

Self-Adhesive Collision Wrap

By February 1, 2021 305 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 284 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.

What is the difference between centerfold and single wound film?

By December 28, 2020 290 Views No comments

What is the difference between centerfold and single wound film?Centerfold shrink film comes in a variety of sizes (lengths and widths) but the one key feature of centerfold film is that the film itself is folded in half lengthwise. The fold creates a sort of pocket or pouch making it easy to insert items that will be packaged and shrunk together. Centerfold shrink film is most commonly made from Polyolefin or PVC.

It is important to note that if you have a 24” roll of centerfold shrink film, the actual width of the film is 48”.

Centerfold shrink film is used for lower output tabletop shrink machines and high-speed fully automatic machines.

Centerfold shrink film is typically used with L Bar Sealers and Bundling Machines. When using an L Bar Sealer, be sure to check the diameter of the centerfold shrink roll as many L Bar Sealers have a max diameter limit.

Single Wound Film

Single wound film is also known as lay-flat shrink wrap and comes on rolls in a single flat layer. Most single wound film is made from Polyolefin or polyethylene. Unlike centerfold shrink film, single wound shrink film is only sealed on two sides creating two holes on the ends known as “Bull’s Eyes.”

Single wound film rolls are typically used when the items being packaged are sent through a high-speed shrink machine because single wound film unwinds faster compared to centerfold shrink film rolls.

Note: Single Wound films can also be formed and sealed by hand.

Mr. Shrinkwrap has all of your shrink film needs. If you have questions please contact one of our experts
