Load your pallet and then cover it from the top down with a pallet shrink bag (install the bag upside down), so the bag completely covers the load. Make a vertical pleat or two to neatly reduce any extra material. At the bottom (at the pallet), take the excess bag and cuff it around the base of the pallet.
Using a shrink wrap heat gun (such as the RapidShrink RS100 Shrink Wrap Gun
), apply heat to first shrink the cuff at the base of the pallet, to secure the load to the pallet. Then apply heat to the pleats to weld them, and ultimately work your way around and up the pallet shrink bag until it is evenly shrunk.
Pallet Shrink Bag Features and Benefits:
- Bag resin has strengtheners.
- Bag resin has 6 months of UV inhibitors*.
- All resins are 100% virgin.
- Shrink Bags shrink up to 20%.
- Recyclable #4 Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE).
*The UV inhibitors protect the pallet shrink bags from UV damage, but do NOT protect the content of the bags. UV rays will penetrate the clear pallet shrink bags and can have a "greenhouse" effect.
