Plastic sheets are used for a wide variety of commercial, residential, and industrial uses. Ideal for protecting objects from sunlight, water and other elements, plastic sheets are a low-cost and lightweight option for various applications.

There are several important factors to consider when deciding which type of plastic sheets to use: size, material type, load tolerance, color, and environmental factors.

Plastic sheets are made from a number of materials, each useful for different applications depending on durability, flexibility, and size. Sheets are made from polypropylene, PVC, polyetherimide, polyamide imide (PAI), polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), PTFE fluoropolymer, synthetic mica, Teflon, polyethylene, nylon, and acetal resin, among many others.

Plastic sheeting is available in a variety of types. For example, different colors of plastic sheets with varying levels of transparency can be used in situations that require more or less exposure to sunlight. Plastic sheets are also available with perforations and varying levels of porosity.
