Using Intercept Technology™ Corrosion Protection Plastic
Our Intercept colleagues at Intercept Australia, have produced a video showing best shrink wrapping practices. The real time video is 52 minutes long. It shows full double wrap techniques and procedures for protection of a fork lift.
The video demonstrates the use of Intercept Anti Corrosion Shrink film with a second extra layer of 200um UV shrink wrap for extended outdoor storage. This video includes best practices such as safe use of a heat gun, webbing, and buckle techniques; additionally the proper use of desiccant and how to apply a zippered window.
General Guidelines for how many shrink film layers are recommended from the Intercept Technology™ Shrink Manual. Contact Liberty Packaging to request this 19 page manual.
