6 Mil Plastic Sheeting

Do I Need 6 Mil or 20 Mil Plastic Sheeting for My Project?

Being prepared with the right products is necessary to ensure the success of your next project. When it comes to plastic sheeting, there are many variables, including the thickness of the sheet. Most construction and greenhouse plastic sheeting thicknesses start at 4 mil and go all the way up to 20 mil for the heaviest duty strength. It is essential to be fully educated about which thickness is the best fit for your project. 

6 Mil Plastic Sheeting 

6 mil plastic sheeting is usually an excellent sheeting thickness for tasks such as covering items during a remodel, construction enclosures, remediation covers, and even greenhouse covers. We offer our 6 Mil Temporary Greenhouse Cover as a solution for short-term coverage during the winter or rainy season. Our other products include our 6 Mil Dura Skrim Reinforced Plastic Sheeting which is ideal for building enclosures, temporary walls or erosion control, and lightweight crawl space encapsulation. This sheeting is available in multiple colors and thicknesses and comes equipped with UV stabilizers for short- to mid-term outdoor use.  6 mil plastic sheeting generally works well indoors and outdoors and in various temperatures ranging from extremely cold to extremely hot. 

20 Mil Plastic Sheeting 

20 Mil plastic sheeting is typically used for jobs like waste or landfill liners, foundation wall vapor retarders, outdoor storage covers, and aquaponic liners. The 20 Mil Dura Skrim Reinforced Plastic Sheeting and 20 Mil Tuff Scrim Reinforced Poly Sheeting are our heavy-duty construction and agricultural film for indoor and outdoor use, due to its highly durable nature. Reinforced sheeting combines heavy-duty polyethylene with a high-strength cord specifically engineered to provide a heavy-duty, lightweight material that won’t rip or tear.
