No matter the season, there's always equipment to be stored and transported. Even the most indestructible-looking machinery needs protection from the elements. Dr. Shrink's Premium Shrink Wrap provides an economical way to keep company assets safe from dirt and damage that can happen on a job site or when in transit.

Tarps and plastic sheeting can blow off, tear and destroy surfaces. Moisture can also collect beneath them. Shrink wrap is waterproof and can be ventilated to eliminate dampness and mildew. Dr. Shrink also offers Vapor Corrosion Inhibiting products to prevent harm to sensitive metals and electrical circuits.

Dr. Shrink's distributor in Norway, Alfa Solution, recently completed three different shrink wrap applications used within the Oil & Gas Industry. Shrink wrap was installed for corrosion prevention and transport protection of a large 250 ton offshore crane manufactured in Norway. The crane was shipped as deck cargo to Korea with 10 weeks of transit time. All electrical components and motors were protected with Dr. Shrink's VCI (Volatile Corrosion Inhibiting) film and sealed with Dr. Shrink's Premium Shrink Wrap. Finally the whole foundation was covered with 12 mil Premium Shrink Wrap to protect against sea spray on deck during transit.

Alfa Solution also used shrink wrap for securing the protectors inside oil pipes- the shrink wrap kept the pipes clean and ready for operation. Dr. Shrink's Premium Shrink Wrap was also used in combination with their VCI film for preservation of the risers. The company also shrink wrapped a new transformer for BP which was transported to one of their platforms in the North Sea. The transformer had to be properly protected for sea spray and was fully covered with VCI and sealed with Dr. Shrink's Premium Shrink Wrap.

Rune Johansen with Alfa Solution states, "Experience has proved the efficiency of using Dr. Shrink's premium virgin-resin shrink wrap in the oil & gas industry as very valuable compared to more traditional methods of protection. Dr. Shrink's shrink wrap is easy to use and gives a long lasting, durable form of protection during preservation, storage and transport of offshore equipment of all sizes and shapes, and it’s a money saver beyond any other methods. Any piece of equipment that has to be preserved and stored can be done so by using shrink wrap in a cost efficient, safe and space saving manner.

Since it can fully encapsulate just about anything, shrink wrap enables users to protect an entire load with one piece. It's easy to apply. Dr. Shrink's training video offers easy-to-follow instructions on the whole installation process. The company has the widest selection of zipper access doors available, so owners can gain entry to covered assets without cutting or removing the shrink wrap cover.

This 100% virgin resin shrink wrap with maximum UV inhibitors is cost effective. Prices start at $149.30 for a 12' W x 149' L roll of 7 mil thick shrink wrap.
