Posted by Nana Hinsley on Tue, Dec 13, 2011 @ 12:02

Reinforced plastic sheeting is also referred to as "string reinforced plastic", "Scrim reinforced liners" and "cord reinforced liners" to name a few.  Reinforced plastic sheeting can come in clear, natural, black, white, blue, or any color your heart desires. The key for a custom color is quantity. 

Reinforced plastic sheeting is used for a multitude of applications.  The fact that it is string reinforced makes this plastic sheeting hold up under harsh environments. The string not only adds strength to the plastic, but it inhibits/ stops tears in the vicinity of the puncture.  Due to its versatility, one of its popular uses is as an enclosure film.  Builders will use it to enclose an area when they are are working to keep the elements out. They may also want to keep dust from traveling to another part of the building.

Reinforced Plastic Sheeting can be used as a hay tarp.  UV additives are added to the formulation so the tarp will not readily disintegrate in the sun.  Hem and grommets can be added to this reinforced liner in order to hold it in place.
