Polyethylene shrink wrap is a durable puncture resistant shrink wrap used for bundling and wrapping products and large objects. Polyethylene shrink wrap can be produced in a variety of thicknesses ranging from 1 mil to 12 mils and thicker. In comparison, polyolefin and PVC shrink film are commonly stocked only up to a 1 mil thickness. Most polyethylene shrink film over 4 to 6 mils in thickness is used for industrial or marine shrink wrapping applications. Companies use thick, heavy duty shrink film to wrap and protect buildings, boats, and a variety of other large objects.
For packaging purposes many companies choose polyethylene film between 2 - 6 mils in thickness. Cases of water bottles and canned goods are commonly wrapped with a polyethylene bundling film. After heat is applied, polyethylene still offers elasticity for puncture resistance, and up to a 20% shrink rate.
