How Stretch Film Can Help Transport Your Materials

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, February 15, 2011

Stretch film and shrink wrap are a commonly used packaging materials used in industries to secure items to a pallet or crate. Industrial film and shrink wrap provide important protection of goods and binds them to a pallet or crate for safe transportation or storage by keeping the items tightly bound and protected from the elements. Most film and shrink wrap is composed of polyethylene and PVC. By wrapping many layers of these materials to an object to be placed on a pallet, they offer secure holding.

The film/wrap can be wrapped automatically or semi-automatically using specialized machinery or it can be wrapped manually. The film is pliable, thin and sticks to itself, so there is no hassle in trying to knot, glue or staple it closed. But because they are used in the industry, the sheets of stretch film and shrink wrap used with machinery are much longer and wider, and depending on the size of the goods to be wrapped, the sometimes require specialized machinery to get it around the object and the pallet. They can be ordered according to the manufacturers/suppliers sizes in mm or yards.

Not only is this material used in the transportation of objects and goods, it is also widely used to protect them in storage facilities such as warehouses. One of the advantages of using stretch film is that it is not a very expensive protective material and can be used on all kinds of materials. It can be used on machinery, chemicals and furniture. We have a wide selection of stretch film for all your business needs, so please feel free to contact us today to learn more about our polyethylene products.

Roll Off Dumpster Liners are Important for Most Commercial Businesses

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, February 08, 2011

A dumpster liner is a massive garbage bag. Of course, there is much more to dumpster liners, such as several thicknesses, sizes, chemical make-ups, uses, manufacturing techniques, and packaging. Most importantly, there are many different liner requirements, each based on a company's specific needs. Concrete companies, asbestos abatement professionals, environmental service corporations and many more rely on Roll Off Dumpster Liners daily to contain materials which may be harmful to others or our environment. Liners are often purchased in addition to renting a container. From New Hampshire to Kansas to California, environmental laws demand the use of dumpster liners.

As an owner, manager or site superintendent if you ask yourself "do i need roll off dumpster liners?" the answer is most likely yes. Insulation and asbestos abatement professionals are required by law to contain and encapsulate any materials which have been found to be hazardous to the public's health. Concrete companies have been the target of environmental agencies for years. The main concern with regards to concrete is the run-off or intentional pouring of wash out material. Man made disasters such as the gulf coast oil spill and hurricane Katrina make liners a must. There is no American who wants to see a dumpster driving down the highway dripping contaminated liquid. In other cases, many manufacturing facilities produce a daily amount of liquid refuse or semi-solid refuse. Again, these companies depend on liners for daily operation to maintain man-hours spent on clean up.

These liners are manufactured much like a trash-can liner or garbage bag. Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) is what is commonly referred to as a plastic garbage bag. This resin is used to produce a Roll Off Dumpster Liner. LDPE has a recycle number of 4. One positive is that the majority of these liners used to keep our streets clean are made of recycled resins. We have our standard sizes but feel free to contact us or request a quote for any other size and we'll be happy to help.

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, February 02, 2011

A lot of us have had it happen before when you either send or receive an item and the item that is inside it suffers a breakage during delivery. You can often tell in an instant and before you have even opened it that what is inside is broken because you can hear the rattle of the numerous pieces inside. Obviously this is something that you do not want to be happening. The best way to stop this from happening is by making sure that when you send any packages, you ensure that any fragile items are surrounded by adequate cushioning. Bubble wrap is the most effective and used product to protect your goods when shipping.

Since bubble wrap was invented in the late 1950's it has gone on to become a world wide product used on a daily basis. The bubble wrap that we have is available a vary of sizes, with the smallest usually being around 6mm in diameter and the larger ones being more than 25mm diameter. The different sizes are suitable for different needs. Smaller diameter sheets are generally stronger and more resistant to bursting so can provide good protection for more fragile items. On the other hand, the larger diameter sheeting provides a softer cushioning which is perfect for use on larger items that are not as susceptible to breakages.
