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.

    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.

      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

        Located on Brisbane’s eastern coast, North Stradbroke Island (’Straddie’ to those familiar) is another of Australia’s natrual treasures -a perfect escape destination. Something of a secret, it is only in recent years that Straddie has started to shine on the tourism and property radar.

        Travel to Straddie by way of the bayside village of Cleveland will take about 50 minutes using the vehicle ferry. Cleveland is only a half-hour drive from Brisbane International Airport and 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 fabulous destination.

        Stradbroke Island is 27,530 hectares, which makes 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. It’s beaches are able to be accessed by four-wheel drive, bicycle or tramping, with many good camping sites located down Main Beach, and fabulous views appear visible from almost everywhere on Straddie.

        Thirty-five kilometres of white sandy beaches fringe the island’s eastern side, from Point Lookout in the north to Jumpin Pin in the south. From the Point lookout headland, the concrete jungle of the Gold Coast is often clearly visible, being 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 vehicular barges moor.

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

        North Stradbroke attracts four-wheel drivers, fishermen, surfies and beach-lovers to its free lengths of beach and rugged granite headlands, and the Island also has a range of accommodation, restaurants, cafes and holiday attractions. With a diversity of attractions on offer and stunningly beautiful spots to explore, North Stradbroke is a fantastic holiday location 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 a popular destination, and only a 30km drive on a sealed road from Dunwich. The North Gorge Headland is 40m above sea level and known as a leading land-based whale watching area during between May and November, and world-class surfing and fishing throughout the year.

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

        One of the greatest features on the island is being able to purchase fresh seafood available direct from local fishermen. Just look for the 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 would rather the work be done for them, Straddie’s restaurants and cafes all make use of this fabulous 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 its own bus service linking the three towns to the 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 quick beer on your way back around -you may even bump into world ranked surfer and local Bede Durbidge! Straddie 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 various 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 run downstairs to get your mug of coffee. As soon as you’re on the first floor , your feet get a utterly different experience. Your feet sink straight into a mushy and squishy carpet totally drenched with water.

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

          Carpet Water Damage
          Water invasion which affects carpet along with other floor covers is one of the most difficult scenarios 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 problems. There are numerous standard queries that needs to be addressed in assessing the appropriate protocol to return carpet to its pre flood state.

          The Origin of Water Damage
          The origin of water damage could be associated with any of the categories below.

          Category 1
          Water or Clean Water

          This regards 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 with no 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 passes by.

          Category 2
          Water or Gray Water

          This regards water that is subjected to a substantial amount of physical, biological or chemical contamination and has the potential to cause discomfort or illness if consumed by or exposed to humans. 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 malfunctions

          Gray water in flooded set ups that continues to be untreated for greater 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 sickness if consumed or it comes into contact with humans.

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

          • Sewage or rainwater mixed
          • Toilet back flows that came from beyond toilet trap
          • Elevated water from streams

          Such sources leak silt and organic substance into buildings and create black water issues. A carpet which has come into contact with black water, including raw sewage or groundwater, must be disposed of as swiftly as possible.

          Read on to learn what method is needed to renovate carpet following water damage.

          Restoration

          A range of removal processes and procedures are taken into place judged by the category of water. Due to the powerful nature of water, restoration techniques also rely heavily on the amount of water, as well as on how
          long the water has been considered stagnant. For instance, assuming the carpet hasn’t been wet for no longer than two days, and the water involved wasn’t sewage based, you may have a chance at saving the carpet. However when the water has drenched for longer, your carpet is most likely unable to be repaired and will need to be replaced.

          Stages in the restoration process

          1 Stop the Leakage

          Find the origin of the flood or leak and attempt to stop the water flow to prevent further damage. In case you have any issues, seek help from a local plumber or engineer who will help you to find the origin.

          2 Excess Water Removal

          Excess water removing is important for the reason that it is the beginning section of restoration methods. Removal of excess water must
          start imediately and the carpet needs to be totally dry within 12 hrs following intervention strategies. Failure to follow these recommendations may allow for the development of various types of bacteria and fungi which may detrimentally impact human health.

          Disposal of excess water may be acheived by physical means including mopping and soaking up excess wetness from touch surfaces or furniture. However, Although more often than not, water removal often requires the use of more practiced methods and tools such as pumps, or uniquely designed wet vacuuming tools.

          Whilst taking control over unsanitary water, you should constantly assume there’s a
          considerable health hazard. Rubber gloves, goggles, boots and other protective garments must be utilised. A person with an open wound must avoid direct contact with the water.

          3 Disinfection
          Disinfect the soaked area by scrubbing it using a cleaning solution concocted by dissolving a few tablespoons of bleach in a gallon of water. Make sure to ventilate the area that you’re cleaning. Some of the fumes may be dangerous.

          4 Dehumidification
          To speed up drying, the carpet must be removed from the tack strip and the carpet padding must be disposed of. The carpet needs to
          be elevated. Set up industrial sized fans which blow directly onto the soiled area. Turn them on high speed for around 36 hrs following the event, staying mindful to move electric cables away from the damp spots. In events where high humidity might postpone drying time period, dehumidifiers need to be secured to assist with drying up the surroundings. A specialized cleaning service can help you with this task.

          5 Temperature Control
          Both evaporation and dehumidification are often heavily enhanced by maintaining the temperatures in a restricted environment. In addition, the growth of microorganisms is temperature related. 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 potentially be vulnerable to hazardous allergens.

          7 Contact your insurance
          Contact your insurance broker to talk about your situation, specifically if you live in a condominium. Based on the way the leak or flood happened, you might not be held responsible for the restoration costs.

            The Importance of Efficient Bond Cleaning in Brisbane

            Apr 12 2014 Published by under 1

            When you lease or rent a property, be it a residential or business property or a long or short term let, you will be told to pay a bond or deposit. The bond will be payable as a cash sum, usually equivalent to one or two calendar month’s rent, and is returned at the end of the tenancy on condition that the property is handed over 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 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 process 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 have to sign some type of tenancy agreement when you are first handed over the keys. Many tenancy agreements do seem to be unnecessarily complicated, but it really is important that you take time to read them in detail and make sure of what you are signing.

            Sometimes, only a percentage of the money you give when signing the tenancy will be returned to you, 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 can 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.

            When 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 need to be aware of just how the property should be left by the end of your lease. If you have broken items or failed to report or repair faulty items during your stay in the property, 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.

            When it is time for your tenancy to cease, you can choose between doing the bond cleaning yourself or indeed employing an individual or firm to carry out the task for you. Professional bond cleaners are used to the high standards required for return of deposits and by employing only the best you can be assured that as long as your whole inventory is correct and that your bills are up to date, you will be given back your bond in full.

            It is therefore extremely important that you arrange for your bond cleaning in advance; especially if you have a large home this really is not something you will want to tackle by yourself. By scouring your local pages or the Internet you will be able to locate the best bond cleaning service for your local area. Prices for this service are very competitive, but you need to remember that when you are going to let people into your home you should always carry out some background checks on the firm or individual you wish to use; this way you will be ensured only the very best and professional results.
