Recycling Of Shrink Wrapping Boats To Produce New Products

We aim to ensure customer satisfaction. From our warehouses, we specialize in supplying shrink wrap materials, accessories and equipment to the marine trade. The boats can be protected safely. With proper training, the right equipment and the use of flame retardant shrink-wrapping film, this process can be finished with little risk of damage to customer’s boats. Shrink wrap is a low-density polyethylene sheath used by many boaters to protect their boats during storing and land carriage. LDPE is made from fuel, an incomplete nonrenewable resource, and is not decomposable. If disposed it takes up disposal capacity at landfills or trash to energy plants. LDPE boat shrink wrap can be recycled and used to manufacture new products such as plastic bags, composite timber. Recycling shrink wrap instead of disposing it may reduce overall waste disposal costs, and realizes environmental benefits over disposal i.e. saves energy, lessens greenhouse gas emissions; helps conserve natural resources; reduces both air and water pollution and conserves water use.

Tufcoat industrial shrink wrap is a strong and tough plastic film that matches every protection or containment need for transport and storage.

Unlike a tarpaulin, because the shrink wrap fits so tightly, it cannot flap or scrape, which is the secret of its durability.

Whether you are transporting your asset by low-loader, trailer or as deck freight it will become exposed to the elements, environmental features and other threats.

Shrink wrap is a recyclable packaging solution that is strong adequate for large, high-volume packaging needs.


When the cover is tied down and supported properly, it will extend the life of your boat by allowing water and snow to run off properly. A nice cover will offer protection from the sun rays as well, keeping your boat looking shiny and new. Shrink wrap provides a level of security and storage convenience for your boat that covering it with a tarp or keeping it in your garage just can’t afford. It protects your boat from destructive ultraviolet rays. In addition, where a tarp can get heavy and sag with snow, or get holes that allow destructive snow, ice, and water to get inside your boat, shrink wrap is intended to warm with the sun and is angled specifically to let snow and water slide off it without damage.

Shrink wrapping your boat means you can store it anywhere during the winter months, and you can even move it if you need to use the space for slightly different. The major advantage of having a boat cover is that you can use it season after season. It may be more of an investment than a single shrink wrapping, but a good quality cover will last you for years to come. Shrink wrap also provides better ventilation than a tarpaulin, keeping your boat dry during the winter season. Finally, while a garage provides much of the same protection, an unused boat can take up quite a bit of space that can’t be used for an entire season.
