Self-Adhesive Plastic and Its Wide Range of Functions

By Comisky Subscribe to RSS | April 19th 2012 | Views:

Self-adhesive plastic is made of polyethylene, sometimes abbreviated as PE. Polyethylene is the most widely used plastic. It is mostly used for containers and plastic bags because it is highly flexible and so smooth that dirt and the microorganisms that thrive in the elements do not cling to it.

Self-adhesive plastic is very thin and smooth yet incredibly strong and flexible. It takes professional work to apply a protective sheet properly because the very smooth film can cling to surfaces of the same sheet. It is bothersome for the sheet to curl, stretch, or wrinkle when you try to smooth it out. It can be quite messy to try to take off a self-adhering polyethylene sheet because dirt and unwanted fibers can stick to it.

Self-adhesive plastic can be used in carpet flooring to keep the carpet from getting dirt or paint. Self-adhesive carpet plastic can make an interior easier to clean without getting any dirt or paint on the plastic because the plastic clings to the fibers like vacuum, so not even air can come under the film. This is incredibly useful for yachts, houses, and hotels when there is a painting job or major cleaning to be done.

There are also self-adhesive plastic films that may or may not be permanently applied to countertops. These are useful for countertops of bars, kitchens, and restaurants. These self-adhesive plastic countertop sheets make the countertops easy to clean and keep the countertops from becoming scratched, grazed, or stained.

Floors made of stone, ceramic, or wood can also be covered with self adhesive plastic when the interiors need to be cleaned or given new paint or wallpaper. This prevents any substances like varnish, glue, or paint from sticking to the floor and making it difficult to clean. After the job, the self-adhesive plastic can be carefully removed.

The same can be done with tubs and showers. Like the ones used on countertops, the self adhesive plastic sheet is used in the manufacture and processing of the tubs or showers as a finish. This makes the shower easy to clean and resistant to corrosion. The smooth surface also prevents the development of crusts and films of calcium from both soap and the minerals in the water.

Self-adhesive plastic is used as a window cover for two distinctive reasons. The first is that self adhesive plastic sheets are applied to a window pane before it is installed in a window; this prevents the window from getting scratched. Self-adhesive plastic sheets can also be applied to windows when there is major reconstruction in a house or building. You may visit for more information.
