If you are reading this, you’re are probably looking for a roll building material quality plastic. Not because you really like plastic, but because you are repairing a home, or building, or cottage, something probably damaged by water, water vapor, or moisture buildup.
So here you are, searching the internet for magic plastic. As silly as that sounds, your search may feel like a quest for something as elusive as magic plastic. Since magic plastic does not exist here are two quick bits of advice to help your search.
First, stop watching YouTube videos about plastic unless the speaker is a Chemical Engineer or is demonstrating how to complete the repair. Anything else is noise. And, possibly wrong.
Second, ask yourself, “what two specific things must this plastic do?”
There are thousands of plastic formulations, hundreds of manufacturing techniques, and a wide variety of qualities. Resulting in tens of thousands of plastics each doing something special. So, what two special things do you need plastic to do for this project? Until you know that, you’re on a quest for magic.
Seriously, for this project, what does the plastic need to do? Protect against rain and not trap water vapor? Block water vapor and not block gasses? Block gasses and be transparent? Tolerate saltwater and tolerate direct sunlight? Be self-adhesive and easily formed around other materials? Be rigid and not brittle? Tolerate extreme cold and stay flexible? Tolerate daily exposure to hot water and not stretch when heated. Hold up to heavy foot traffic and clean easily? Cut easily and not tear? Fold easily and not wrinkle? Be food safe and reusable? You get the idea.
