What Type of Shrink Wrap do I get?

The term shrink wrap is a generic term often used in commercial packaging, retail packaging, food packaging, and industrial packaging. Compared to other forms of packaging, shrink wrapping is often much more affordable and often times more efficient. Another reason is the attractive appeal to the consumer on the retail shelf.  To maximise space, maximising on cost and shelf appeal makes it the new way to package just about anything.

All of the types of shrink wrap listed below require heat to be applied for the material to begin shrinking.

Tube Shrink

The main difference between shrink tubing and shrink sleeves is shrink tubing is often on a continuous roll. Shrink sleeves are pre-cut to fit the product being packaged. Shrink tubing is often made from PVC of Polyethylene. Tubing made from PVC is often used for retail packaging longer objects while polyethylene tubing is often used for packaging cases of liquids and canned products.

Centrefold Shrink

One of the most common types of shrink wrap for retail packaging. Centrefold shrink wrap is folded in half length-ways and placed on a roll. This allows users to slide the product being wrapped between the films, seal the open ends, and then apply heat. Centrefold shrink wrap is most commonly made from PVC and Polyolefin. Some suppliers do offer a Polyethylene centrefold shrink film.

Shrink Sleeves

Another very common type of shrink wrap for retail packaging. Shrink sleeves are often printed on and placed over bottles to brand products. Shrink sleeves often have a lower maximum shrink rate to keep from distorting printing. Preparing plates and design mock-ups can often be extensive as well as meeting required product minimums.

Types of Document Risks

Protection of personal data must be ensured because this can put the position and financial situation of the person concerned at risk. These documents involve confidential data that is restricted to a small group of people. Unwarranted giving out of information can bring a significant effect on the company and could violate legal agreements and obligations. These documents require strict requirements in terms of personal data protection to keep the individual concerned free from considerable risks to social standing and financial situation.

The Importance of Sydney Packaging Partnerships

How Sydney’s Packaging has changed

Selling products to the retail giants is tricky. Rules regulations and “shelf ready packaging” are on top of the list for companies if they want to be on the shelves. At one point or another if a company wants to sell products to its consumers it must look at ways, designs and a partnership with a packaging company that are equipped with the tools, skills, and knowledge to meet special regulations that ensure producers are in compliance and sell a consistent product. They sometimes can be expensive so shopping around Sydney might take up valuable time.

The Big 3 giants in retail have all moved into Shelf-friendly packaging. You have no choice but to move to SFP.

Finding, evaluating, and hiring the right contract packager to work with your team can be a challenge.

Importance of Specialised Security Shredding

Computer data, CD’s and DVD’s destruction has to be done to keep you and your business safe. Fines, reputation damage and loss of sales could cost your business millions. Studies in 2015 show 1 in 5 breaches are still in fact paper, with 73% in house shredding.

Tossing confidential data into open bins increases the risk of theft by information thieves – in and outside of the workplace. Shredding paper in house is not a reliable solution.
