Heat shrink wrap is used with a multitude of mil thickness for a variety of jobs. Check out our blog on whether your using the right thickness for your job. When protecting important cargo from the elements such as wind, water and rocks, thicker mil heat shrink film  is better. 7,  8 mil and 9 mil heat shrink wrap is most popular when transporting. The quality is important, like with anything, so make sure your heat shrink wrap is made right here in America with virgin polyethylene. Virgin polyethylene heat shrink plastic is important because it will be free of impurities and doesn’t contain holes or recycled materials that will compromise the integrity of the heatshrink film. Pro-Tect has a flame retardant film in 9 & 12 mil thickness as well as UV inhibitors to help its storage life last for years in the sun. We also have a complementary  ethylene-vinyl acetate, EVA,  additive to help with cold freezer like conditions. The EVA additive was originally used in freezer bags to prevent cracking. This ensures your heat shrink plastic job lasts through harsh winters.
