Bubble Pack for Protection in Shipping

Joseph Coupal - Monday, September 24, 2012

To protect fragile, sensitive or irreplaceable items for shipping, wrap them in bubble wrap, with the bubbles facing the product. Bubble wrap protects all surfaces of the item and the external plastic will distribute any impact amongst the packaging.

Polyethylene bubble wrap comes in many sizes. The range is 1/4 inch diameter, to one inch. The larger the bubbles, the higher level of shock absorption. But in addition to the shock absorption qualities of bubble pack, Atlantic Poly also offers anti-static bubble wrap for shipping sensitive electronic parts and equipment. Static can damage electronic chips. By using anti-static bubble wrap the static charge is removed.

Contact Atlantic Poly for information on the types of bubble wrap available.

Protect Profit with Stretch Film

Joseph Coupal - Monday, September 10, 2012

The loss from product damage results in a hit to your bottom line every time. Whether you are transporting pallets of product around your warehouse or when shipping by land, sea, or air consider stretch film.
Stretch film provides exceptional security measure over tie straps. Why is stretch film a superior option? Because stretch film provides greater pallet stability at a fraction of the cost. Tie straps wear and tear and often do not return from their destination.

Both handheld and machine held stretch wrap also provides protection to your product in storage. Stretch wraps will help protect your stock from dust and moisture, which can reduce the risk from mold, UV damage, internal pilfering and pests.

Product damage and loss is a direct hit to your net profitContact Atlantic Poly for more information on stretch film and shrink wrap.

Construction Film and Vapor Barriers

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, September 04, 2012

Vapor barriers are typically defined as  a plastic or foil sheet used  for damp proofing that resists diffusion of moisture through the walls, ceiling and floors of buildings and of packaging. Building codes have classified vapor barriers as having a water vapor permeance of 1 perm or less. Vapor retarding materials are generally categorized as: Impermeable, semi-permeable,  or permeable.

Insulation alone is often not enough to keep heat from escaping. Most of a buildings heat loss is from air movement or air infiltration through the walls.

Construction companies need vapor barriers. Plastic vapor barriers or vapor retarders from Atlantic Poly is polyethylene sheeting or construction film which provides simple, versatile and inexpensive protection to keep the warm air from escaping through or around the insulation and other building components.

It can be used in numerous industrial, agricultural and construction applications. Contact Atlantic Poly for more information.
