Because individual sheets of shrink wrap can be heat welded together, it is possible to create a continuously bonded skin around a scaffolding project. It is this important feature that makes shrink wrap sheeting useful for situations where the total environmental containment of dust and debris is required.
This feature has led to shrink wrap being used extensively as an environmental containment measure on bridge shot blasting and painting projects. Where paint work needs stripping back to bare metal and repainting, lead in old paintwork that has been shot blasted from the project could contaminate the environment.
Typical ‘containment’ uses;
- Asbestos removal
- Concrete cutting
