Differences between shrink wrap

The film you use is important, equally, so is the application!

As with most things in life, you get what you pay for. With something as seemingly simple as shrink wrap there is still a vast difference in the product quality between manufacturers. Dr. Shrink’s product is unique, there is no other film like it. Dr. Shrink does not manufacture films for anyone else and nor does he share his secret formula.

Our film is the most long lasting, highest performance product on the market, which provides the most cost effective returns. Dr. Shrink created the formula which other supplies try to emulate, including their UV inhibitors and ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) to retain its elasticity and prevent the film from becoming brittle when used in long term applications. Containing anti-static and flame retardant additives making it the safest of films to use.

As with most things in life, you can’t beat the original and we have found the imitations out there are always of lower quality. Known problems we hear of from our customers who have used these other brands, even those manufactured here in the UK, include; Inconsistent product, thicknesses vary hugely between rolls making application extremely difficult because the product does not do what you are expecting it to, it’s like learning to use a different product each and every time you go to a job. Becomes brittle, anything over 6-8 months has needed replacing. Shreds and tears too easily, loosens over time; again needing costly servicing and replacement.

The film you use is important, equally, so is the application!
