Preservation Services

While most businesses utilize only wood boxing or crating for their shipping needs, MacPack specializes two, effective, low-cost, alternative packing methods: heat shrink and foil wrapping.

Custom Heat-Shrink Preservation

Custom Heat-Shrink PreservationWe impregnate a polyethelyne film with a Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) and then heat-shrink your equipment with this film. This process provides a superior protective barrier for machinery, electronics, and other sensitive materials that need to be thoroughly shielded from potential moisture damage.

If you need to move a perishable shipment that must be protected from moisture, MacPack offers innovative heat-shrink preservation services that will be customized to meet the needs of your goods. Our heat-shrink barrier technology seals machinery and electronic equipment with desiccants (i.e. drying agents) that will protect your goods from moisture, preventing both damage and corrosion.

We provide custom heat-shrink preservation services to clients throughout Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Virginia and the process can be used for both domestic and international shipments. No matter how large or bulky your items will be, we can handle shipments of any dimensions and scope.

This packing solution is especially economical for airfreight because it restricts the overall dimensions and weight of your shipment, thus reducing your overall transportation costs! Our custom heat-shrink preservation services provide a wide range of features and benefits, including:

  • Any size piece of equipment can be covered
  • Prevents rust, corrosion, salt water damage
  • Prevents wind damage without the expense of tarping
  • Can eliminate moisture for long periods of time
  • Unlike crating, adds very little weight to your shipment
  • Protection for unusually large items
  • Equipment longevity = future savings
  • Cost effective
  • Reduced shipping costs

Foil Wrapping

Foil WrappingSimilarly, has the attributes of heat shrink, but provides the additional benefit of complying with specified military specifications (mil-spec). This is particularly helpful to our military and government agency clientele.

Both methods are especially economical for airfreight, restricting the overall dimensions and weight, thus reducing your transportation costs!

No matter what type of equipment or goods you need to protect, our preservation services are a cost-effective way to ensure that your items will make it to their final destination safely and intact. Our personnel are highly trained and certified and will go above and beyond to ensure that your goods are carefully preserved and ready to handle their journey.
