Questions on the AIE Straight-Bar Shrink Wrapper. Is the film that comes with it archival quality for my photographs? If not, do you carry this type of film and can it be substituted for the roll that comes with it.
Is the film the same width as the Model? Eg.,is the 24″ model film 24″ wide?
The shrink film that comes with the AIE Straight-Bar Shrink Wrapper is PVC. This is more a more rigid type film, and the acid from the film will deteriorate the colors in your photos over time. We recommend Polyolefin shrink film. Polyolefin film requires more of an investment; we would not be able to exchange the PVC film straight across for Polyolefin.
Polyolefin is one of the most popular types of shrink wrap film in the industry today. It is durable and even safe to use with food. Polyolefin is easily identified by its stretchy properties. It is also ideal for bundling multiple items together. It produces very little odor and may be used with most shrink wrap systems.
Most shrink film rolls are the same length as the machine model, give or take a couple of inches in some instances. Finally, be sure to back your photos with something rigid before shrink wrapping. This will prevent bending and cracking with your photographs.
