Polyethylene FilmPolyethylene Film is a popular and highly versatile product that is used in a wide range of applications. In the form of continuous film and sheets, polyethylene is also known as PE, plastic, or poly film.

Beneficial attributes of this film include:

  • Conformability
  • Water Proof
  • Long term stability
  • Comes in various thicknesses
  • Performs well at wide temperature ranges
  • Will not crack or crease at low temperatures
  • Abrasion, solvent, and moisture resistant
  • Can be customized to fit the application

Polyethylene is virtually waterproof, but will allow elements like oxygen and carbon dioxide to pass through. Its appearance is typically clear, but it can be opaque, depending on application needs. Different materials can be added to polyethylene film to customize its attributes for specific applications. Characteristics that can be added include:

  • Adhesive
  • Flame resistance
  • UV resistance
  • Anti-static properties
  • Higher tensile strength
  • High or low slip coefficient

Polyethylene film is widely used in construction as a vapor barrier, window film, flooring and countertop protective film, and more. It is ideal for protecting building materials, sealing off rooms, and protecting floors in place of dropcloth.
