How to Shrink wrap a pallet or object:

Prepare your work space:

  • First ensure the area you will be working in is well ventilated, is oil, grease and dust free and, there is plenty of space for the heat gun operator to move around the pallet or object.
  • You will also require a heat resistant glove.
  • Place your shrink film / polythene over your pallet or object, if possible anchor the shrink film under the pallet or object, it is essential the product or pallet is completely covered with the shrink film / polythene prior to beginning heat shrinking.
Prepare the heat gun:
1: Connect the regulator to the gas outlet.
2: Connect the hose to the regulator.
3: Connect the shrink gun to the other end of the hose.
4: Turn on the gas and slowly press the excess flow check valve to release the gas to the system.

Heat shrink your pallet or object:

  • Starting at a bottom corner of your product or pallet go all round the bottom first, the flame guard should be approximately 8inches away from the film.
  • If you are heat shrinking a pallet next seal the top by directing the flame into the gap of the two layers of polythene and patting closed (ensure you are wearing your glove).
  • Going back to the corner you started at continue heat shrinking just above the section you have already shrunk. Use a sweeping motion, going backwards and forwards from one edge to the other on the one side, moving upwards until you reach the top of that side, then move to the next side repeating the process until all sides are done.
  • Once the sides are complete direct the gun into the middle of the top and using the same sweeping motion finish the top.
  • On completion ensure the gas supply is turned off correctly and excess gas has been burned off before leaving the gun unattended. Remember never to lay the heat gun on the floor, use the eyelet provided to safely hang the gun.
