Shrink Wrap Film – Retailers Love It

Apr 16 2014 Published by under 1

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 as a result of these demands that the shrink 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.

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.

Christening gowns are still in fashion

Apr 12 2014 Published by under 1

baptism-christening-gownChristening gowns are long and flowing white dress-like gowns, longer than the baby. However, in recent years some families have used white shirts and shorts for boys. Many christening gowns are passed down from generation to generation.

Christening gowns are not merely keepsakes, they are very poignant souvenirs for a child, as it denotes a momentous occurrence. The array of christening gowns to choose from can be seemingly endless.

While a wedding gown may be a crucial article of clothing for a woman to purchase, her child’s christening gown would certainly come in a close second. A christening gown must be able to not only hold up to the elements through the ages, but it should also last to supply every generation with fond memories. An heirloom christening gown is essentially just a type of clothing specifically designed for a christening.

Baby girls are the most common wearer of the christening gowns, and they don them for their baptisms. With the many available styles and types of christening gown, selecting one for your baby will be a welcome challenge. Though babies are often the focus of a room, their baptism still becomes one instance where they shine even brighter when they wear something that accentuates the power of the ceremony.

      Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy (UGS)

      Apr 12 2014 Published by under 1

      Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy (UGS) is a method of treating varicose veins of any size and it has now mostly superseded older traditional forms of injecting varicose veins under direct vision. Ultrasound is used to guide injections of sclerosant foam by directing the needle tip into the target vein. There is no sedation used with this procedure.

      The principle sclerosants now used in Australia and overseas are Polidocanol and Sodium Tetradecyl Sulphate. Both these agents are detergents and because of this property, they can be agitated into a foam. The first published reports on the use of sclerosant foams appeared in 2000 and since then they have come into routine use around the world today. The properties of foam have specific advantages over the use of solutions.

      UGS is the optimal form of treatment for the majority of patients with varicose veins. Endovenous Laser Therapy (ELT) is the preferred method if the varicose vein is larger than 6mm in diameter but ELT is only feasible if the vein is straight and deep to the skin.

      The source of lumpy varicose veins almost invariably arises from a leakage point from the deep veins into the superficial veins higher up the leg and this position is usually not obvious on the surface of the skin. Therefore the initial ultrasound assessment is imperative in determining the location of the source of this “leak”. Direct treatment at the sight of visible lumpy veins is usually a futile exercise if a primary leak point higher up the leg has not been identified and eliminated.

      The initial treatment is directed towards this source with subsequent injections made in a distal direction. The injections can vary from 2 to 10 in number. The duration of treatment is usually less than 30 minutes. A medical grade compression stocking is then applied to the leg and patients then go off for a half hour walk. The stocking needs to be worn for 1 to 2 weeks depending on the severity of the case.

        The Typical Queenslander Style Home

        Apr 12 2014 Published by under 1

        When you think of a typical Queenslander, apart from the massive stilts and open-plan design, one of the most recognisable qualities is the corrugated iron roof.

        Since the 1840s when Australia was first developing, corrugated iron has been considered one of the best materials to use for roofing. Because of it’s lightweight, sturdy properties, it is the ideal material to use in terms of easy transportation and construction as well as protection.

        Although it is a relatively strong, fire proof and weather-resistant material, if exposed to water (particularly salt) rusting is inevitable. This is why it is extremely important to coat the steel in a layer of paint in order for it to remain protected.

        Even today this roofing remains to be one of the most popular choices in materials for a range of reasons. Its flexibility, strength and thin sizing allows for quick repairs, relatively cheap installation and durability with little maintenance.

        Apart from the practical side of things, there is also the aesthetics. The typically 3 inch curves rolling into one another create a very symmetrical feel, breaking up the angles of the rest of the house and creating a harmonious contrast.

        Since iron is quite a durable material itself, compared to wood it is very easy to prepare for installation. Instead of needing to purchase an expensive sealant, a few layers of paint will generally be enough to prevent any damage.

        One aspect of corrugated iron that can pose a genuine issue is the fact that the wavelengths of most sounds are echoed loudly into the tube of the corrugated iron. This means that any noise close to or coming into contact with the roof is going to release a high pitched “ping”. This can be a genuine issue for Queenslanders as falling tree branches and wildlife are a part of our every day lives.

        On the other hand, the echo can be the perfect culprit to amplify raindrops into a soothing lullaby and because of the shape of the typically 3 inch tubing and smoothness of the iron, the water runs straight down and off the roof, making cleaning very manageable. Also because it is a very thin material it allows the house to stay cool in the warm summers, making it the ideal choice for a house in Queensland. For roof restoration Brisbane, contact Retro Roof Restoration.

        The iron sheets themselves are relatively cheap and can be purchased with a coat of Colorbond or made galvanised to order. They range from around 5 to 45 dollars per sheet depending on the size of the sheet and what coating you have selected.

        Compared with other common roofing materials such as clay, slate, concrete, wood, Spanish and asphalt, corrugated iron is often said to be one of the most durable and certainly one of the most cost-effective.

        So whether it’s the classic sound of rain on the tin roof, or the practical desires of someone looking for a sturdy home, or anyone who doesn’t want to waste their precious pennies, it is no surprise that corrugated iron is one of the most popular choices in Queensland.

        The Secret of Organising Kids’ Parties

        Apr 12 2014 Published by under 1

        Children’s parties have come a long way in the last decade, parties used to be a basic checklist of guests, ‘party food’, games, cake and party bags. A simple and predictable structure yet always fun, easy and relatively cheap. The two biggest decisions would be, which cake out of the Women’s Weekly Children’s Birthday cakes to choose and should be a party for a few close friends or the whole class?

        Nowadays it’s more like should we have it at the indoor Playcentre, McDonalds or the bowling alley and to hire a face painter, magician, jumping castle or clown? It’s a modern world, children’s entertainment services like everything are more readily available and in our time poor lifestyles it easier to outsource and get somebody else to take care of the food and entertainment.

        These days’ parents are happy to spend more on their children and really spoil them on their birthday. If you have the money and you know your child will absolutely love it, go for it. The added bonus is that it can make your life a little less stressful – the children are entertained and you can kick back and enjoy the party yourself.

        It’s become the new normal to hire an entertainer or activity for a child’s Birthday party and it is certainly a special gift to the children to experience something out of the ordinary.

        I do however think there is a fine line between enhancing a children party and an overblown party. I think the best parties are based on the traditional concepts with an added extra, like a jumping castle OR a clown show not both! I have attended many parties where the parent has hired a face painter, a magician-balloonist plus a jumping castle and lolly buffet and the children are either being forced into a tight schedule so they experience everything or they are completely wild with so much stimulation they’re bouncing from one thing to another without the time to really enjoy each activity or each others company.

        Birthday parties are so popular with children as essentially they enjoying sharing this special occasion together, playing games, running about and laughing. I guarantee if you went to the park, brought along a birthday cake and called it a party the children would enjoy themselves. Some parents can overlook the fundamental purpose of the party and hijack it using it as a vehicle to show-off to friends and family.

        I have read several articles about the excessiveness of the ‘modern day’ children’s party can be fuelled by parent’s guilt. Parents feel guilty that due to work commitments and heavy schedules they haven’t spent enough quality time with their children. Putting on a no-expense-spared party proves their love to their child while appeasing the guilt they feel as failed parents.

        As a parent I can see the validity as to why children’s parties have developed into a mini circus. We want our children’s party to be a special experience and parents are under constant pressure to have what that friend’s party had or worse; to go one step better! It’s easy to get over excited and even easier to blow out the budget.

        When planning your next children’s party, keep in mind who the party is for and who is it really you want to impress. Set yourself a budget and remember – keep it simple!

          Stradbroke Island Queensland – Travel Guide

          Apr 12 2014 Published by under 1

          Right on Brisbane’s eastern doorstep, North Stradbroke Island (’Straddie’ to the initiated) is one of Australia’s natrual treasures -a perfect escape destination. Somehow, the secret has been well kept and it is only recently that Straddie has begun to shine on the tourism and property radar.

          Travel to Straddie via the bayside village of Cleveland will take you about 50 minutes using the vehicle ferry. Cleveland is a 30 minute drive from Brisbane International Airport or the centre of Brisbane, and an drive from the Gold Coast. The ferry ride across Moreton Bay is the first step that makes visiting Stradbroke Island such a wonderful trip.

          Stradbroke Island is 27,530 hectares, and therefore is the world’s second largest sand island. The elongated sand island shields much of the southern part of Moreton Bay and the smaller islands from the ocean swells. The beaches are able to be accessed by four-wheel drive, bicycle or tramping, with a number of good camping sites placed all the way down Main Beach, and beautiful views appear visible from almost everywhere on the island.

          Thirty-five kilometres of white sandy beaches fringe the island’s eastern side, from Point Lookout at the north to Jumpin Pin in the south. From the Point lookout headland, the concrete jungle of the Gold Coast is often clearly visible, and is a constant reminder of the stark contrast to the slower pace of Straddie.

          North Stradbroke (Minjerriba to the indigenous Noonuccal tribe) was the home of celebrated Aboriginal poet Kath Walker, or Oodgeroo Noonuccal. There is a lot of Aboriginal and European history surrounding Dunwich where water taxis and barges berth.

          The calm waters of Moreton Bay swish against the shores of the island’s western fishing towns. The lack of agriculture and the filtering effects of the sand provides pure water that sea-life, and particularly Stradbroke Rock Oysters thrive in.

          North Stradbroke attracts four-wheel drivers, fishermen, surfies and beach-lovers to its free stretches of beach and rugged granite headlands, and the Island also offers a good range of accommodation, restaurants, cafes and holiday attractions. With a diversity of experiences on offer and spectacular areas to discover, North Stradbroke is a popular holiday destination for families, couples and adventure-seekers alike. The ideal way to see the Island is by Four Wheel Drive, but there are many stunning coastal walks and a mountain bike and whale watching map are an easier and more environmentally sound alternative.

          Point Lookout is the main tourist hub, and only a 30km drive on a sealed road from Dunwich. The North Gorge Headland is 40 metres above sea level and known as a leading land-based whale-watch site throughout from May-November, and world-class surfing and fishing throughout the year.

          Point Lookout’s unspoilt beaches and headlands are safe for swimming, surfing and fishing all year round. Whales, dolphins, turtles and manta rays can often be viewed from the spectacular North Gorge at the northern part of the island. The island is listed as one of the world’s most ecologically important wetlands with several freshwater lakes, waterways and lagoons that are accessible by 4WD or on a tour with one of Straddie’s friendly tour operators.

          One of the greatest features of the island is being able to purchase fresh seafood directly from local fishermen. Look for signs at Amity Point and Point Lookout which will direct you to their homes and the freshest catch-of-the-day around. For those who prefer the work be done for them, Straddie’s restaurants and cafes all make use of this perfect island resource on the menus.

          “The Point” offers several alfresco style cafes, a bakery, chemist, post office, newsagent, corner store and supermarket. The island also has a bus service linking the 3 towns to ferries and water taxis.

          North Stradbroke Island is the ultimate paradise for the many enthusiasts who visit each year. On a good day it’s possible to surf right past the pub, along the evocatively named Cylinders Beach, on waves that peel dreamily for hundreds of metres. Stick ten bucks in the back pocket of your boardies and you can drop in for a beer on your way back around -you may even bump into world ranked surfer and local Bede Durbidge! Stradbroke boasts what is perhaps the last truly old-school surf shop in the country, that makes it’s business selling surf gear rather than fashion.

          The jewels in the Straddie’s crown is Point Lookout and the natural wonder of the North Gorge Walk, along with the surf, the choice of beaches, all sheltered in different winds, the whale watching, and the spectacular coastal walk around the gorges.

            5 Top Tips about childrens entertainer Brisbane Individuals should know of

            Apr 12 2014 Published by under 1

            In the past couple of years, the importance of children entertainers has really been on the rise. Not only are they called in for children’s parties, but they are invited in functions in which children are expected to attend. But the problem normally comes in choosing a top entertainer for kids. In Brisbane alone, there are quite a number of them. But just how do you pick the cream of the crop? When looking for top childrens entertainer Brisbane individuals should pay close attention to the following tips.

            1). Insist on local companies or individuals
            If you have found an entertainer on the web, find out from them where they are based. Should they be located far away from you, you should avoid them even if they offer to help. This is because they are likely to subcontract a company to do the job and not themselves. This type of third-party agreement should be avoided at all costs. It is indeed cheaper to find a local company and also, you can get to meet them in advance as you strategise for the party.

            Tip:

            • You can find a top local entertainer for kids in Brisbane by word of mouth. Talk to other parents, teachers and carers as they can recommend to you some really good entertainers.

            2). Get a quote from several entertainers
            Entertainers charge different rates for their services. This is why you should call out at least three entertainers and find out what they are charging. But this does not mean that you should use the price as the only determining factor in choosing a Brisbane entertainer. Other than price, consider also the following:
            • How a company present its activities and whether it makes it appear professional. Look at their advertising material like pamphlets and websites.
            • Look at the range of services as well
            • Consider also if the entertainer offers more than 1 person when performing.

            3). Get the confirmation in writing
            After agreeing on the date, cost and duration, it is important to have a written record on them. This can be in form of an email or a written confirmation from your entertainer. When it comes to payment, desist from revealing your credit card details to companies that you have only met online. Consider using Paypal and other online payments to pay down payments.
            If it is a local firm, you can either go in person and make the deposit or even send them a check.

            4). Ready the entertaining space.
            There are times when an entertainer would want to come much earlier and set up tricks and props among other things. If this is the case, make sure they let you know of it. This helps you to make prior arrangements so that the entire party preparations are not interfered with. If there is anything that you will be required to supply, find out in advance.

            Tips

            • Know beforehand if any specific height, space or safety requirements will be needed for activities like room juggling and no cords trips among other activities.
            • Consult with the entertainer about the seating arrangement that would be best for the kids.

            5). Ensure that you have checked the basics before the entertainer proceeds with the show
            The following are the checks that you need to perform.

            • Check their identity. This can be done by checking their driver’s license and also business license. You need to ensure that whoever comes in is the person you had agreed with and not strangers.
            • Also important is to see the certificate of liability insurance from the entertainer. This must contain the name of the entertainer on it.
            • In case by now you have not had a contract with the entertainer, you need to do it at the door before the entertainer gets in.

            Carpet Water Damage

            Apr 12 2014 Published by under 1

            You put on the bathrobe and go downstairs to get your pot of coffee. As soon as you’re on the first floor , your feet get a completely different feeling. Your feet sink straight into a mushy and squishy carpet totally soaked with water.

            While this appears to be a nightmare, it’s regrettably an unhappy reality.
            According to the origin of the incoming water, your carpet might be able to be returned to its initial condition without compromising your overall health and safety.

            Carpet Water Damage
            Water invasion which affects carpet along with other floor covers is one of the most challenging situations encountered by a homeowner or a building manager. Each crisis should be examined on a situational basis. Every flooding scenario may have its own distinct concerns. There are many standard queries that needs to be addressed in examining the appropriate protocol to return carpet to its initial state.

            The Origin of Water Destruction
            The origin of water destruction could be associated with any of the categories below.

            Category 1
            Water or Clean Water

            This refers to water originating from a source that is not contaminated.

            Examples of clean water sources can include, but aren’t necessarily
            limited to the following

            • Burst household water supply lines
            • Tub or sink overflows without any contaminants
            • Appliance failures associated with household water supply lines

            Clean water which has been exposed to surfaces and content materials may degrade in sanitation as it dissolves or combines with soils and other impurities as time elapses.

            Category 2
            Water or Gray Water

            This regards water that is subjected to a substantial level of physical, biological or chemical contamination and has the capability of causing discomfort or illness if ingested by or exposed to human beings. Gray water contains microorganisms and nutrition for microorganisms.

            Samples of gray water sources can include, but aren’t necessarily
            limited to the following

            • Discharge from dish washers or washing machines
            • Overflows from the toilet bowls with urine but no feces
            • Sump pump breakdowns

            Gray water in flooded set ups that continues to be untreated for longer than two days can switch to category 3 black water.

            Category 3
            Water or Black Water
            This is the term for extremely unsanitary water that contains pathogenic agents, developing from sewage or different infected water sources and has the probability of causing distress or illness if ingested by or exposed to humans.

            Examples of black water origins may include, but aren’t necessarily limited to the following

            • Sewage or rainwater combined
            • Toilet back flows that came from beyond toilet trap
            • Rising water from streams

            Such sources leak silt and organic substance into buildings and create black water problems. A carpet which has been exposed to with black water, including raw sewage or groundwater, must be discarded as fast as possible.

            Continue on to figure out how to renovate carpet following water damage.

            Restoration

            Different removal methods and procedures are taken into place based on the category of water. Due to the destructive nature of water, restoration methods also rely greatly on the quantity of water, as well as on how
            long the water has been considered stagnant. For example, as long as the carpet hasn’t been wet for no longer than two days, and the water involved didn’t embody sewage, you may be able to save the carpet. Although when the water has drenched for longer, your carpet is most likely beyond repair and will need to be replaced.

            Stages in the restoration process

            1 Stop the Leakage

            Investigate the origin of the flood or leak and attempt to cease the water flow to prevent damage in the future. In case you have any issues, seek advice from a nearby plumber or engineer who will assist you to discover the origin.

            2 Excess Water Removal

            Excess water removing is vital because of the fact that it is the starting point of restoration methods. Removal of excess water must
            start imediately and the carpet needs to be completely dry within 12 hrs after intervention strategies. Failure to follow this advice might begin the development of a variety of bacteria and fungi which may detrimentally impact human health.

            Disposal of excess water can be acheived by physical means including mopping and soaking up excess wetness from hard surfaces or furniture. On the other hand, water removal generally requires the use of more sophisticated processes and equipment like pumps, or uniquely designed wet vacuuming instruments.

            When controlling unsanitary water, you should always assume there’s a
            considerable health hazard. Rubber gloves, goggles, boots in addition with other protective garments must be used. A person with an open sore must avoid direct exposure to the water.

            3 Disinfection
            Disinfect the drenched area by scrubbing it using a cleaning solution made by dissolving a few tablespoons of bleach in a gallon of water. Make sure to air out the area that you’re cleaning. Some of the fumes may be toxic.

            4 Dehumidification
            To quicken drying, the carpet must be removed from the tack strip and the carpet padding needs to be thrown out. The carpet needs to
            be elevated. Place industrial sized fans which blow directly onto the damaged area. Run them on high speed for around 36 hrs following the event, staying mindful to keep electric cables away from the damp spots. In situations where high humidity might delay drying time period, dehumidifiers need to be used to assist in drying up the surroundings. A specialized cleaning service can help you with this task.

            5 Temperature Control
            Both evaporation and dehumidification are often significantly enhanced by controlling the temperatures in a restricted environment. On top of that, the growth of microorganisms directly relates to temperature. Therefore, temperature modification and control is an essential basic principle for safe and efficient drying.

            6 Monitoring and Inspection
            Inspect the carpet’s progress following 12 hrs. If your fans haven’t added to the restoration process, you should think about replacing the entire thing since 12 hrs is ample time for mould to build up. In case the carpet hasn’t dried out significantly by then, you may be vulnerable to hazardous allergens.

            7 Contact your insurance
            Contact your insurance broker to discuss your situation, especially if you live in a condominium. Based on the way the leak or flood was caused, you may not be held responsible for the restoration costs.

              When you lease or rent a property, be it a domestic or commercial property or a long or short term let, you will be required to pay a bond or deposit. The bond is payable as a cash sum, usually equivalent to one or two calendar month’s rent, and is returnable at the end of the lease on condition that the property is returned in the same condition as it was given. When your tenancy is coming to an end, in order to ensure that you are in receipt of your bond, you will need to employ bond cleaning, this being either taken out by yourself or by someone of your choice.

              Bond cleaning has earned its name as it is a cleaning service that is specific to the end of a rental or lease agreement, and one that is carried out in order to enable you to receive your deposit. When you lease a property you will always sign some type of tenancy agreement when you are first handed over the keys. Many tenancy agreements appear to be unnecessarily complicated, but it is essential that you take the time to read them in detail and be sure of what you are signing.

              Sometimes, only a proportion of the money you give when signing the tenancy will be returned, the rest being kept as administration fees and charges for carrying out credit checks. You need to always check exactly what you are signing, and read the small print; this way you will be able to understand just how much of the deposit is be returned to you after bond cleaning, and just what exactly you need to do in order to ensure your deposit is returned in full.

              While using your property, it should be neat and everything should be in working order; you will in fact sign to this effect. So, what this means in turn is that you are aware of just how the property should be left at the end of your tenancy. If you have broken items or failed to report or fix faulty items during your stay in the accommodation, even if you employ the very best of bond cleaning, you should still expect to have some money from the bond kept. Other reasons you may not be entitled to the whole bond are if you are not up to date with utilities or communal charge bills.
