Cutting: The plastic sheeting can be machined with any wood working tool. For cutting we recommend a skill saw or table saw using a 20 tooth carbide tipped blade. With thin sheets of 1/8 inch or thinner, score one side and break it if you prefer. The plastic can also be cut using a router, saber saw, or hand saw.

Fastening: We recommend galvanized construction screws in normal environments, and in harsh environments use stainless steel construction screws. Where a finished look and corrosion resistant fastener is needed, use plastic rivets.

Thermal Expansion is not a problem in situations where temperature is held constant. When installing in situations that experience a wide range of temperature variation an allowance for expansion and contraction should be made at the fastener. For this situation pre drill a hole 1/8 inch larger than the diameter of the fastener used.

This is a very durable material that will stand up to most chemicals and high moisture conditions, so choose a fastener that will last as long as the sheeting.

Seam Finishes:: “H” Channels are available to finish butt seams.  Corner molds are available for inside and outside corners.

Installation

  1. Select appropriate fasteners and pre-drill holes ( ⅛” larger if temperatures will fluctuate).
  2. Allow for movement by not over tightening fasteners.
  3. Attach ¼” or thicker plastic directly to studded walls or ceilings with 16” centers. If the stud spacing is 24” or greater, or the sheeting is supporting some weight, the user should evaluate the need for backing material.
  4. Do not rely on construction glues in place of mechanical fasteners. Glues that bond will not stick to this plastic. Pressure sensitive glues may be appropriate for some applications, however, the user should use discretion.
  5. All seams must be backed by studding or some other support to prevent the seams from sagging.
  6. Butt the edges together and finish the seam with an “H” channel or caulk.
