Heat Shrink Wrap
Heat Shrink Wrap
Heat shrink wrap is made of polymer plastic film which is wrapped around a product and subjected to heat to cause it to shrink tightly around the item. Heat shrink packaging has a number of applications from hygienic food packaging to slick point of sale packaging, to securing pallet loads.
Shrink Film Systems
Kite Packaging offers a choice of desktop shrink film packaging systems suitable for smaller items, and pallet shrink film systems which include everything you require to shrink wrap pallets.
Our desktop heat shrink wrapping kits include a shrink sealer to cut and seal the shrink wrap film, an unrolling device, separator bar, two speed hot air blower with two nozzles and a safety stand. The 400mm wide shrink wrap system is ideal for packaging smaller items such as books, DVDs, video games, small toys or toiletries. The 800mm wide desktop shrink film systems can be used for larger items such as calendars, pictures, large books and boxes.
For shrink wrapping pallets, we recommend the industry leading Ripack 2000 Heat Shrink Gun which is supplied in a heavy duty carry case complete with double safety adjustor regulator, 8 metre propane type hose with swivel connector, spanner, instruction sheet and guarantee card. Store your pallet wrap on a Pallet Shrink Roll Dispenser for convenience and ease of use.
Shrink Wrap Film
We stock a range shrink wrap films to suit any application.

Our 15 micron thick Polyolefin heat shrink film has an extremely high clarity, making it the perfect choice for point of sale packaging. It is environmentally friendly compared to PVC shrink film, and can be processed through standard recycling systems. Polyolefin shrink wrap film is high strength, food safe and available in widths from 400mm to 1000mm.
