Plastic Masking Film – A must have for Auto Painting

If you work in the auto body industry or plan to create a custom paint finish at home on your car then you will need to invest in a quality plastic masking film.  This film is specifically designed for the auto body aftermarket and is designed to help you mask off the car before painting so that it will attract any over spray and prevent it from getting onto any freshly painted surfaces. With plastic masking film you will have less color sanding and buffing which means less time to complete the project and less work as well.

There are many different brands of plastic masking film on the market to choose from; however, it is a good idea to do your homework first because not all plastic masking film is the same and some will work better than others for auto painting projects. Some of the most well-known names in the plastic masking film industry are 3m, Fiberglass Evercoat, US Chemical and Five Star just to name a few. Choose wisely because you will get what you pay for. Do not cut corners when it comes to plastic masking film, or you will be disappointed with the results.

Plastic masking film comes in a wide variety of sizes such as 12”, 14”, 16” and 20” in width. The different sizes are available to provide you with the overage that you need for all different sizes of vehicles. For small compact cars the 12” size is typically plenty large to thoroughly mask off the auto body to ensure that the overspray is thoroughly eliminated or it will lead to more work for you. If you are not sure which size of plastic masking film you need, check the recommendations of the manufacturer to determine the proper size that you need for the job.

Choosing a quality plastic masking film will ensure that you receive all of the cling properties that you would expect from plastic masking film without any static electricity. Low quality plastic masking film can sometimes come with static electricity which can attract dust and dirt to the surface of your car. Do not make the mistake of choosing low quality plastic masking film; make sure that you take the time to choose a professional grade plastic masking film to ensure the best results possible.
