shrink wrap won't sag or get loose

Shrink wrap is just one of the many packaging solutions we offer here at Co-Pak Packaging Corporation, and we highly recommend it to our partners in many cases because of the benefits this type of packaging offers. Here are just a few you should be aware of when deciding whether to add shrink wrap to your products:

  • Durability—The shrink wrap we use features incredibly durable, sturdy plastic, which makes it hard to puncture or tear. Plus, shrink wrap does not weaken or become brittle over time when it’s exposed to extreme cold or the sun. After being sealed over your products, the shrink wrap won’t sag or get loose.
  • Protection—After applying heat to the shrink wrap, a very tight seal can be created. This seal can provide impressive protection to the contents within the shrink wrap, making this material ideal for items that are vulnerable to damage caused by moisture, dirt, or dust.
  • Tampering—After application, shrink wrap reliably holds its shape, so you know when someone has tampered with the packaging upon first glance. We often suggest shrink wrapping pharmaceutical and food products to make tampering quickly evident.
  • Affordability—If you want to minimize your packaging costs, shrink wrap is a cost-effective option. You can also use it to keep multiple products close together, so you don’t have to use additional materials to package your products.
