Boatcoat’s shrink wrap is a premium grade, low density polyethylene film made from fractional melt resin and other additives.
What makes this material different from common plastic sheeting? This innovative product contains ultra-violet inhibitors (UVI) and anti-brittling strengtheners, this helps to protect the covering against deterioration from the sun so that it will not rip or tear. These added features give the shrink wrap covering the essential impact, strength and elasticity that is vital for industrial applications (including transport).
The shrink wrap incorporates resins that when subjected to heat begin a uniform shrinking process, causing the shrink wrap to shrink 25% to 30% and strengthen and mould to fit any type of object or structure.
The result is a “drum-tight” covering that does not flap or chafe like tarpaulin, has great durability, and can withstand motorway wind speeds!

Shrink film sizes are shown in the chart below. Shrink wrap can be cut to size for smaller objects and heat seamed together for even larger objects. Wrap is multi folded on to a 1.55m x 300mm reel.

Between 190 and 300 micron thick – this is the standard weight shrink wrap that we supply for large industrial & marine use.
White shrink film is the most common colour of choice within the industry, this is because it looks clean & professional and reflects the sun keeping the interior cool. These benefits occur whilst also allowing up to 80% of natural light through which is especially beneficial where work is taking place underneath a cover or encapsulation.
