8 Mil Shrink Wrap - Products Below
Thickness is a very important aspect of your wrapping material to consider when deciding which shrink wrap is correct for a given application. As with our other shrink wrap offerings, our 8 mil shrink wrap is also made of 100% virgin resin with 12 month UVI protection. 8 mil shrink wrap is good to use for medium to heavy duty applications. 8 mil shrink wrap is a suitable millage for wrapping objects that will be transported. 8 mil is the thinnest shrink wrap that is recommended for transportation purposes.
If you have used shrink wrap with a thinner millage before, you may notice that thicker shrink wrap tends to become activated by heat and shrink more slowly. To compensate for this, we recommend taking a safe approach while first shrinking your wrap by gradually moving your heat tool toward the shrink wrap while maintaining constant side-to-side movement in a medium size area. Using this method of gradually moving your heat tool toward the shrink wrap will give you a much better feel for how quickly the film will shrink as direct heat is applied and help to lower the chance of holes or thin spots caused by applying too much heat, too quickly, and in a small area. After some muscle memory for safe and proper heat application has been developed, you will find that thicker shrink wrap such as 8 mil can be more forgiving than those wraps of thinner millage.
