Shrink wrap used by boaters for the long lasting storage purpose

Shrink wrap acts as a prominent role for preparing your boats for winter. With thorough training, the correct equipment and the use of flame retardant shrink-wrapping film, this process can be ended with a little risk of damage to client’s boats. We produce and manufacture it in a range of extend stretch film-sizes. Shrink wrap is a low-density polyethylene cocoon used by many boaters to protect their boats during storage and land transport. If it is disposed it will take up a disposal capacity on landfills or trash to energy plants. Boat shrink wrap can be reused and processed to manufacture new products such as plastic bags, composite timber. The shrink-wrap material is non-permeable

so it’s important that the boat is as dry as possible before it’s wrapped, and that vents are installed in the wrap so it can breathe during storage. On long road and sea journeys, shrink wrapping prevents damage from extended exposure to heavy weather and road grime.

Unlike a tarpaulin, because the shrink wrap fits so tightly, it cannot flap or chafe, which is the secret of its durability. Whether you are transporting your asset by low-loader, trailer or as deck freight it will become exposed to the elements, environmental factors and other hazards.

Tufcoat developed industrial shrink wrap is a strong and permanence plastic film that matches all protection or policy need for the transport and storage. We use special extra protective tape to tape all seams and folds to ensure your boat stays tight and strong all winter long.
