Shrink Wrap Film – Presentsation Counts

Manufacturers across the divide continue to produce quality products. We are all too familiar, with the attractive transparent packaging of toys, imported fruits, clothes, pens amongst other things. Unlike the previous times, customers can still have a glimpse into their prospective purchases, carefully examining them without necessarily compromising their state or quality (food).

It is of note that, both polymers are ideal for different packaging purposes. The choice of shrink film is determined by the product, budget and level of technology the producer in question has.

The undeniable fact is, packaging being the cornerstone of branding and advertising can be responsible for high sales volume or the reverse. Manufacturers and producers alike are today faced with the tough task of choosing the ideal packaging material. In the end the functionality of the shrink wrap can only be determined by the manufactures and producers.

It is as a result of these demands that the skrink wrap film was developed. In the formative years; we were all accustomed to the brown paper bags which had our tree population on the decline. Subsequent move to the opaque store-name-christened polythene was a further disservice. Then came the perfect solution to all these problems, the shrink film.Initially, the shrink film was exclusively made from PVC (Polyvinylchloride).This is a plastic polymer (third most used plastic in the world) that had the capability of sealing products with a thin layer of plastic sheet. These sheets were often transparent to allow the customer have a view of the product.

The sheet would be wrapped over the product and passed over a heat tunnel or a heat gun. Normally, the length or circumference of the product would be measured, 10% of this value would be added then the sum is divided by two, this would give the size of PVC shrink wrapping to be used. PVC has the ability to shrink by 40% percent giving the packaging a tight grip of the product.

However, with time it was noticed that PVC could release small amounts of hydrogen chloride giving the products a characteristic smell in addition to poisoning. The sealers also would have small carbon deposits. The presence of a plasticizer in PVC had the drawback of hardening and shrinkage during cold weather and extreme stetching with subsequent temperature increases.

These drawbacks meant a suitable shrink film devoid of a plasticizer be developed. Polyolefin was found to have the packaging abilities of PVC but lacked the setbacks that faced the latter. It became a preferred choice of packaging. Offering a stronger seal and fewer odours. Its lack of plasticizer meant no physical changes to the shrink film. It would become the perfect storage solution; all weather .Lack of chlorine in its polymer meant no hydrogen chloride previously characteristic of PVC.

However, while its predecessor PVC enjoys machine compatibility and low cost purchases, polyolefin is the opposite, it remains relatively expensive and hard to use alongside machines.PVC on the other hand remains a suitable choice for manufacturers who don’t deal with edible products. Owing to its cheap price and machine compatibility it is a manufacturers darling.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a light based technology which treats several skin conditions in one treatment. It works in the deeper layers of the skin where traditional skincare cannot reach, thus achieving a far superior result.
Skin concerns such as pigmentation, freckling, sun damage, capillaries, redness, acne scarring and rosacea may be treated with photorejuvenation.

Pulses of light are applied to the skin via a handpiece which filters the wavelengths of light through a layer of ultrasound gel. The treatments remove most types of sun induced pigmentation like freckling, age spots and sun damage. By lessening the darker pigmentation IPL leaves the skin with a more even tone. Vascular skin concerns including capillaries, redness, acne scarring and rosacea are also targeted by the broad wavelengths of light. IPL works particularly well on red acne scarring that is left behind after undergoing acne treatments.

As most people will have several skin concerns, this treatment has become popular as it can address them all. The IPL photorejuvenation also stimulates the production of collagen which will plump and smooth the texture of the skin, improving fine lines, wrinkles and pitted scarring.

There is little or no downtime involved with photorejuvenation. Most people will experience some redness and heat in the area which subsides in several hours after treatment. The most common treatment areas are face, neck, décolletage/chest area and backs of hands.

Photorejuvenation treatments can be utilised as a once off treatment, however a course of treatments will promote the best results. A progressive result can be expected with a change usually noticed within a week after a session which is why IPL Photorejuvenation has gained such popularity among both men and women.

Advantages of Wearing Silicone Custom Swimming Caps

Almost every professional swimmer is using custom swimming caps these days. Even male swimmers are big fan of these caps especially silicone swim caps due to their lots of advantages. These swim caps are not only good for appearance and style but also have several major advantages over most swim caps. These are the advantages to swimmers of wearing a silicone swimming cap. Keep reading to familiarize yourself with each. To see photos of swimming caps, see this page: http://www.custom.zone/swimming.html

* They last longer (Durability)

One of the biggest advantages to swimmers of wearing silicone swimming caps is their durability than most swim caps because of their thickness. Most custom swim caps have a tendency to tear quite easily because they are so cheap but this is not the case with silicone caps. Silicone caps can last for many years when taken good care of because they don’t get attacked by chlorine hence no need to worry of the inconvenience of getting a tear in the cap while swimming.

* Protects the hair from chlorine and salt water

If you are pool swimmer then you must be aware of the different chemicals such as chlorine used to keep pool water safe and clean. Chlorine may damage your hair so badly especially if you are a frequent swimmer. On the other hand, if you like to swim in sea water or open water the salt in the water can affect the health of your hair too. Silicone caps have a panel of thicker silicone cover and a little bit thicker than most other swim caps hence they are the best when it comes to protecting your hair from chlorine and salt water.

* They do not generate allergic reactions

Silicone caps are best suitable for people who develop allergic reaction with latex swimming caps. This is because they are thicker and slightly less elastic than their counterparts- which mean they don’t really generate allergic reactions. More so, they provide a sleeker profile in water thereby preventing any kind of allergic reaction.

* Keeps the head warmer in cold water

Cold water swimming is not that easy especially if you cannot keep yourself warm while swimming. Silicone swim caps are especially designed for this purpose since lots of heat is lost through the head while swimming. They are a little bit thicker and very comfortable inside compared to most swim caps to keep you warm while swimming during spring or fall months. They also have a greater thermal insulation capacity. This is the reason why they are a bit expensive.

* They can be put on easily

So many swimmers struggle getting in and out of their swim caps and it is very annoying. However, silicone swim caps can be placed on the head more easily. They will not pull on the hair so much as they are easier to put and take off.

Bottom line

In conclusion, silicone swim caps are top of the range and the most expensive but they are becoming ever more popular because of their durability. They are available in a variety of colours and designs hence they should be the first choice if you are allergic to latex.

All aboard!! Getting your small business on board your CRM journey.

It’s a big ask, but someone has to take it on. If you’ve realised that your business needs to start driving efficiencies through CRM, you need a champion to be in the driver’s seat.

Let’s face it. Small businesses just don’t have the specialised resources, multi-disciplinary teams and project methodologies that big businesses have. But then again, that’s probably a good thing, as red tape can just slow you down.

We work with a lot of small businesses, and there’s usually one person who has been trusted with job of moving the business forward on its CRM journey. Often it’s the business owner themselves, but just as often, they will charge someone else with the task – usually the person with the most to gain from getting the best solution in place, or the one who’s known for whipping things in to shape.

Putting aside your real job, your role as CRM champion is important. It’s a big task with a lot riding on it. If it didn’t, you wouldn’t be the chosen one.

So here’s a little pep talk to help you on your way. These are our tips for being a great CRM champion.

  1. Sell the vision

You are bringing your own unique perspective to the role, but not everyone sees things the way you do. When everyone is doing a different job, they have different frustrations – or might think everything is just fine the way it is. It’s your job to sell the vision of what the future looks like.

 

Just about everyone will be impacted when you introduce a CRM solution in a small business – and some people are simply resistant to change, especially if it sounds anything like more work. Your challenge is to paint a picture of how CRM will help them, rather than be a hindrance.

  1. Search out the sticky problems

You need to get some clarity on what problems you’re trying to solve by implementing a CRM. What are the big hitters? What are the niggly annoyances?

 

You need to gather this intelligence from the people who matter – that’s the people who will be using the CRM. Launch an investigation. Talk to everyone. Learn what they do and how they do it. Ask what frustrates them. Cover all of your bases – the production team, the receptionist, the sales manager – everyone. Understand the flow of work, and what problems are created by the step before. Listen for things like “Those sales guys make it really hard for us in production when they don’t …..”.

There’s clues everywhere for how CRM can help drive consistency and efficiency in your business.

  1. Make a list – check it twice

From the results of your investigation, make a list. Â Then you can prioritise what’s urgent and what is nice to have. This is important as you might not be able to do everything at once. You might need help from your CRM implementation partner at this point. Â If you find the right help from a good implementation partner, they can inject their knowledge of what is standard functionality and what requires greater customisation effort. Â You might find that it’s possible to tick everything off your list on day one.

 

We’ve seen enough to know that you can also get great results from breaking the project into phases. There’s a lot to be said for getting the basics right and focusing the big transformational pieces of work.

Once people start using the system they have a much better perspective and context for what else is needed. You might find that some of your second phase priorities might change or be unnecessary and new ideas will arise for how your CRM can better support your processes.

Redo your list, resell and vision and get moving on Phase 2.

  1. Find a partner who understands you

We might be biased, but it’s essential you get the right help. You need to find a CRM implementation partner that gets you and gets CRM. Every business we work with is different, and every CRM starts and grows in different directions because of the unique problems you need to solve for.

 

That’s why we work exclusively with Microsoft Dynamics CRM. It’s extremely flexible and we can make it fit just about any business problem we come across. It’s a matter of intimately knowing CRM and getting to know your business and what you want to achieve.

Ok, so now it’s time to get out there. Start championing the cause!
