Centre Folded PVC shrink wrap is used widely to protect and secure products. The film is placed around the item and then heat is applied with a heat gun or heat tunnel which shrinks the film evenly around the product forming a tight fit
There is a huge confusion amongst lots of people about these packaging films. Here is the definitive explanation.
The shrink film we supply is all centre folded PVC film for use with shrink kits or L-sealers. We offer 19 and 25 mic film.
Our stretch film is cast material meaning it is not sticky to handle and it is silent in operation. We offer medium, heavy & ultra heavy duty strengths, a 500mm wide Black film (also cast) plus a 100mm wide roll for bundling.
For light boxes like this always use the medium duty stretch film to keep any crushing of the boxes to a minimum.
Go round the pallet twice at the bottom making sure the pallet itself is overlapped. Now wind the film round the pallet stretching it as you go. Make sure you overlap the previous layer by at least 30%. When you get to the top wrap twice round again and tear off. Easy!

No; not in anything but truckloads!
