Warning! This shrink wrap can burn. If heat is applied incorrectly, shrink wrap can ignite into open flame. It can also drop down onto other combustible material and cause secondary ignition and fire. If at any time you observe the shrink wrap on fire, immediately stop what you are doing and carefully inspect the area where you are working for a possible fire. Keep a fire extinguisher available at all times. Inspect the cover for up to 30 minutes after shrink-wrapping to look for hot spots. IFTHE WIND IS BLOWING MORE THAN 10 MILS PER HOUR, DO NOT SHRINK THE COVER! ALWAYS USE LADDERS TALLENOUGH SO THAT THE SURFACE TO BE SHRUNK IS VISIBLE. Please note that sail-boat hulls painted with AWLGRIP or IMRON should not be shrink wrapped, unless the cover comes just below the gunwale and the perimeter band is separated from the hull by foam blocks. All right Lance and Ryan are doing a piece of machinery and the principles on this is very similar to doing a boat will work on all types of machinery will also work on pallets. We're going to throw the film over after the product has been padded, common sense, and a little bit of logic help here where you see sharp objects and you pad them first before you throw the shrink-wrap over. Well, we've done on these particular instances throw a bit of padding over the tower on the forklift just where there may be a sharp edge. the film is on the unit now and Ryan is cutting it just to make sure that we want to again be close to the floor all the way around. Then we're doing machinery like this we'll put the material on first, and then put the band on afterwards then we'll flip it up and make a heat roll. Again, center slit material unfolds easily and again you also want to keep the material clean so we're using the film dispenser. A piece of machinery like this we're going to have a fairly large a bunch of pleats in it, but there will be one on each corner and we'll fold them very similar to wrapping a Christmas gift. So, Lance is bringing the pieces around, you can see we'll have just a little bit of extra cut off, small piece of tape to hold the cleat in place. This is a virgin resin material, number four low-density polyethylene premium product. And again, the film goes the width of it anywhere between 12 and 40 feet so it can do extremely large machinery using one piece of material where you have no seams. Weight is good for outside storage in any climate because it reflects heat keeps condensation to a minimum. Ryan is trimming down now, or just trimming off the initial pieces to the bottom of the unit. Yes, so that the film will lie basically where it's going to be when we put our perimeter band on. Once the material is trimmed to the floor level, we can put our perimeter band on, and then when doing machines and pallets and so on it's easier to put the film on first especially if you're indoors where the winds not blowing put the material on and then put the perimeter band over the material. That way, we can simply cut six inches and have six inches of material or so below the band and then we can flip it up and make our heat weld. Ryan's installing a buckle just exactly like we did earlier on a boat, and again the perimeter band is the only thing holding the cover on so it has to be extremely tight, so we're using a tensioning tool, tight as a bowstring that is always helpful. See Ryan is using the tensioning tool and when you put the strapping and there's a cap that goes around and it has four slots in it, it makes no difference which slots you go into. We just want to make sure that the band gets extremely tight, and again cut off the ends on the strapping just to neaten it up. There are enough layers of material on this particular type of unit that we don't have to tape over the buckle. Ryan's using the film knife to make nice neat straight lines and there would be no chance of cutting himself or damaging whatever's underneath the cover. That's a sealing around the perimeter band and putting heat on the inside so that we're getting a nice bead weld. This is what's holding the cover on as you are going around, seal along the base and then also do pleats at the same time. You see Lance doing the pleats inserting heat in between the layers starting always at the bottom and then working towards the top, let the heat work for you. Lance is almost done doing the last corner, then the entire unit can be shrunk. Lance is starting low and letting the heat work for him you, see how it tightens up very quickly. Again, using the heat tool is very similar to spray painting and its heat have strokes back and forth. Here's a completed piece of equipment, again, almost any size piece of equipment can be done. 40-foot wide is our widest shrink wrap but pieces can be heat welded together to do larger objects.
