Heat Shrink Films

Polyethylene (PE) Shrink Film

The most widespread shrink wrap film is low density polyethylene, more commonly referred to as polythene or PE.  The principal use to which PE is put is as a transit medium. It allows packs to be wrapped individually or collated and offers the best combination of protection and unit cost when compared with the alternatives.
PE shrink wrap packaging film is used on a vast range of products, from radiators and work surfaces to collation of cans and jars and the individual shrink packaging of cartons and products themselves, such as pizza.
Shrink wrap plastic applications do have overlap between transit and display shrink film where there is a requirement for the enhanced presentation offered by display, and equally, where the advantages of display are not required.
The shrink wrap plastic ranges do not overlap totally as a fundamental transit requirement in the normal way can be satisfied only by PE shrink wrap film.

Is your Machine Film being Stretched!

Image
Here at Quick Pak Inc, we see this all the time. If a stretch wrapper is not actually “stretching” the film to its full potential, you are throwing money out the window. In addition, increasing the stretch of the film will increase the containment force.  A load wrapped with a machine which is not stretching the film properly is much more prone to shipping damage. Many companies don’t take these factors into account. They think that as long as their machines are working, they are working properly.

We recently got a call from a customer who has large distribution centers in many states and is wrapping 2500 pallets per day. Their corporate office had noticed a trend that a distribution center in one state was spending much more in film costs per year than their other locations, even though they all used the same machines and the same film. These machines are meant to stretch the film at 250%.  When the Quick Pak team arrived we quickly found that some of their machines were working pro…

Laser Marking and Coding in Packaging

Is laser marking the right solution for your business? Which laser technology will deliver the best results? Our coding experts reveal everything you need to know about laser marking technology.
Not too long ago, laser was considered a specialist marking and coding solution — with a hefty price tag. Today, thanks to the rapid advances in technology, laser coding has not only become more cost effective, it’s also now the number one choice for a wide range of applications across food, beverage and pharmaceutical packaging, right through to heavy industries. And in another massive leap for the technology, lasers can now mark clear and legible barcodes on primary and secondary packaging. Does this mean lasers will replace inkjet technology? Probably not — there are still some applications for which laser is simply not the best nor cost-efficient choice. But with the lower capital cost and flexibility, it’s worth weighing up laser technology for your application. Is laser coding right for y…
