Reinforced plastic sheeting is used in a multitude of applications across various industries. 20 mil is the most durable thickness available for reinforced plastic sheets and it’s commonly used in construction, healthcare, and DIY projects. This is due to the extreme puncture resistance of its virgin high-strength polyethylene and heavy-duty scrim reinforcement design. Throughout both short and long-term applications, 20 mil reinforced plastic sheeting offers reliable protection. Here are the many ways you can use a 20 mil reinforced plastic sheeting for your applications.
Top Uses for Reinforced Plastic Sheeting
20 mil reinforced plastic sheeting is extremely versatile and can be applied to virtually any construction project. We recommend 20 mil Dura Skrim for outdoor projects that require UV resistance. It provides weather protection for construction enclosures, equipment covers, and containment barriers.
2. Vapor Barrier
Keeping moisture out of buildings starts with the right vapor barrier. A vapor barrier is used in crawl spaces, walls, ceilings, and foundations to prevent damage to the structure. Plastic sheeting acts as a barrier to eliminate potential moisture from seeping in. 20 mil Tuff Scrim doesn’t contain UV inhibitors so it’s ideal for indoor applications like this where it won’t be exposed to the sun.

3. Agricultural Liners and Covers
When you need a heavy-duty liner, 20 mil reinforced plastic sheeting exceeds expectations. It’s an outstanding solution for lining aquaponic troughs, and media beds. It’s also used as a pond liner and to cover livestock housing. There is a multitude of farming applications that can benefit from a cover or liner that withstands high winds, and high traffic.
4. Recreational Activities
Speaking of high traffic, a 20 mil thick liner is an excellent choice for mud runs and pond skimming where there are large crowds of people participating. The thicker the better when your entire event relies on the durability of the materials you use in your project.
