Keep on reading to discover just some of the reasons why shrink wrapping is such a great packaging method…
Benefits of Shrink Wrapping
- Durability – Shrink wrapping is more durable than any other packaging method available – The PVC shrink film in which it utilises is very tough and strong, making it really hard to damage. Because of how tough the shrink film that is used is it makes it the perfect packaging option for items that are going to be transported, particularly long distances.
- Protection – Shrink wrapping can offer complete protection to items of all shapes and sizes, this is because the packaging method allows for shrink wrap to be wrapped tightly around items. Shrink wrapping protects items from moisture, dirt, dust and anything else on the outside of the PVC plastic shrink film. For this reason, even many food items are packaged in this way. Go to your local supermarket and you may be surprised to see how widely used this packaging method is.
- Cost-effectiveness – Compared to other packaging options, shrink wrapping is incredibly affordable. This is one of the main reasons why companies choose to utilise it throughout their businesses. This is because once a shrink wrapping machine is purchased, going forward, only shrink film is required and this is really inexpensive. Shrink wrapping also only uses the materials needed and minimises against waste. Another reason why shrink wrapping is cost-effective is that it is quick and easy to implement, meaning people don’t have to get trained for long periods of time and that fewer people are in fact needed for packaging items.
