POLYETHYLENE SHEETING, PLASTICS

Description: This comes in various thicknesses (1 mil, 2 mil, and 6 mil), various widths (3, 6, and 12 feet), and in rolls 25, 50, and 100 feet long. As the film gets thicker it gets cloudier, with I mil quite clear and 6 mil milky. It also comes in black.

Buying information: Different forms of "poly" have different uses. The 3-foot-wide. 2-mil material is commonly preferred for drop cloths. The 1-mil material is very thin but drapes well and can even be used as a drop cloth on furniture.

How-to hints: Masking tape can be used to secure plastic sheeting, but not for more than a few weeks; After this it tends to fall off. Duct tape or package tape is much better.
