I have seen a few different materials called shrink wrap. Anything from stuff to wrap boats to the plastic around a bottle cap. What is it?

@bigboy5682,
As used, it's a plastic film that shrinks when heated.

@roger,
yeh, what he said. It does have a relatively high tensile strength on shrinking so you only wrap articles with strong meeting corners or the shrink wrap can actually break things like antenna mounts when it pulls up.

I learnt a lesson when we shrunk wrapped Iapetus I(our boat) and it snapped the radar mounts and the antenna mounts

@farmerman,
With two replies, I can't help but wonder how it got voted down to zero so quickly. I though it was at least a somewhat interesting question.

Proper shrink wrap is much more expensive than counterfeit.

Madame Whiplash only uses the top quality stuff, and I can vouch that, although her charges are quite exorbitant, the decent quality wrap makes the whole thing a thoroughly worthwhile experience.
