Window Plastic: a Protective Film for Painting and Construction
Plastic is used for a number of purposes. It is versatile because it can be recycled into a number of things. The construction and design industries now make use of plastic as a protective material during finishing.
Plastic is made of a wide range of synthetic or semi-synthetic organic solids that are moldable. The word “plastic” is derived from the Greek word “plastikos” which means “able to mold or to shape”. This material has a long chain of molecules called polymers which are usually synthetic. Most are derived from petrochemicals, but some are partially natural. Plastic is available in many colors and is rubbery or rigid.
Plastic is used in construction as substitute to materials like wood and is considered more durable than other materials. It is commonly used for pipes, valves, and fittings in the plumbing system. The construction industry is the second largest consumer of plastic.
Plastic can also be used as siding, flooring, insulation, panel, door, window, and bathroom units; it also has a growing list of structural and decorative use. It is lighter and has superior corrosion resistance, making it more cost-effective than alternatives. It builds a reputation for durability, aesthetics, easy handling, and high performance. Aside from using it in construction and other utilities, it is also used as a protective film against paint or stucco during finishing of a structure.
Window plastic is commonly used during finishes as shield against paint and protection against harmful fragments that loom in the construction site. There are two variants: one that lasts for a year and one for six months; usage depends upon the extent of the project. The variant that lasts longer has more ultraviolet inhibitors (UVI) additives that lessen deterioration caused by the sun and its ultraviolet rays.
Window plastic is self-adhesive polyethylene film that adheres to the glass to specifically shield the glass from paint or stucco. It is three millimeters thick with water-based adhesive systems. It is either colorless or blue. It can be applied directly to the windows or glass without leaving any adhesive marks as compared with other polyvinyl chloride window films.
With the availability of window plastic, you do not have to use old newspapers and tape to protect your windows while painting. Window plastic is designed to withstand any weather and temperature, especially heat in construction sites.
