SHRINK WRAP KEEPS MACHINERY PROTECTED FROM DAMAGE

Mining Vehicle Covered
For machines to run properly, and look presentable when delivered to your customers, they must be protected during storage and transportation from all weather damage.  Dr. Shrink, a full-service supplier of premium shrink wrap and installation accessories, provides a versatile, cost-effective solution that helps ensure equipment stays clean and damage free. At pennies per square foot, shrink wrap provides essential protection to valuable machinery.
Dr. Shrink offers premium shrink wrap in widths of 12 feet to 60 feet with thicknesses from 6 to 12 mil.  All materials are 100% virgin resin with maximum UV filtration for long-term usage.  When properly installed, white shrink wrap will last more than one year in any climate without becoming brittle due to sun damage.
Shrink wrap has considerable advantages over tarps, construction plastic sheeting and other types of covers that can move and chafe painted surfaces.  It can be ventilated to eliminate moisture and mildew, and zipper access doors provide a convenient, easy-entry option.  The affordable shrink wrap is also easily recycled through Dr. Shrink’s REBAG recycling program and Recycling Run efforts.  For a catalogue, shrinkwrap samples, or additional product information contact Dr. Shrink at 800-968-5147; Fax: 231-723-9586;  drshrink@dr-shrink.com.

Shrink Wrap Recycling Tip for Fall


As you may know, we are in the middle of our spring Recycling Run for 2012.  The Recycling Run offers shrink wrap users & marinas an easy, convenient way to recycle shrink wrap covers and scraps.  Just follow these steps to participate:

  1. 1)  Buy Dr. Shrink REBAGS® for $3.00 each from Dr. Shrink
  2. 2)  Stuff the REBAG® with only shrink wrap
  3. 3)  Fill out our Recycling Form to request a pick up week; Bay Area   Recycling for Charities will pick up your bags!

 
Some participants have raised questions on how to better cover costs associated with the REBAG® Recycling Run program.  It is recommended that shrink wrap installers & marinas who wish to partake in our Recycling Run every spring/summer charge a recycling fee up-front and include it in the installation cost of the cover.  If the boat owner is responsible for removing the shrink wrap, the Recycling REBAG® can be placed in their boat before it is covered.  This way the REBAG is ready and available when the boat is unwrapped, and the shrink wrap can be properly disposed of.
We greatly appreciate your help in the recycling effort.  If you would like more details on the Recycling Run, read through our previous blog, “Dr. Shrink’s Recycling Run 2012”.  Please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or comments.

Dr. Shrink’s Recycling Run 2012


We are thinking spring already and preparing for our annual Recycling Run for 2012.  Dr. Shrink is once again teaming up with Bay Area Recycling for Charities (BARC) for the third year in a row in an effort to make sure shrink wrap is recycled properly every spring.
Shrink wrap will NOT biodegrade in a landfill, so it is important to have it recycled.  Our Recycling Run program makes it simple and straightforward:

  1. 1.Buy Dr. Shrink REBAGS® for $3.00 each from Dr. Shrink
  2. 2.Stuff the REBAG® with ONLY shrink wrap (no buckles, strapping, access doors, etc.)
  3. 3.Request a pick-up form from Dr. Shrink to schedule a pick up

 
Pickup regions are all throughout Lower Michigan and we have expanded this year into Wisconsin and Illinois as well.  The Wisconsin Marina Association is working to start the program in their state and BARC will be doing the pickups within all three states.  Optima Colour is also participating in the effort for the second year, and will be doing pickups in Ontario, Canada (within 200 miles of Toronto).
If you are curious about removing a shrink wrap cover properly for the Recycling Run, please reference this video below.
