Plastic masking film: which one for which job?

calendar-icon 24 March 2022

Perfect masking leads to a faultless painting project. Of course, you have to be sure of the products you're using. In this article we will focus on plastic masking film, a real must have.

Choosing different masking films for different spots or purposes can be a next-level improvement, when it comes to professional painting. Q1® Premium Masking Solutions gives you 3 different types of plastic masking film:

  1. Plastic masking film for furniture and floor protection
  2. Plastic masking film with extra grip
  3. Self-adhesive plastic masking film


Plastic masking film for furniture and floor protection

Plastic masking film for furniture and floor protection

Q1® Cover All Dust Sheet is the right choice for furniture and floor protection from overspray, dust and spills. Thanks to an exclusive patented system it is faster and easier to unfold and open out compared to other products.

The plastic film is electrostatically charged so that it doesn’t slip or flutter when you pass by. The electrostatic charge is the result of a process known as “corona treatment”, which guarantees two advantages:

  • It helps the film cling on the vehicle;
  • It attracts paint overspray and retains it on the film, preventing bleeding on the floor.


Plastic masking film for furniture and floor protection (product)Read our customers’ opinion:

I recently had a job in a house that was still being renovated and since I could not remove the furniture from the room I moved it all to the centre and covered it with this cloth. The sheet is very large so one was enough and I protected everything not only from the paint but also from the dust that was floating around the house. - Pete

Q1® Pre Folded Masking Film, thanks to its static cling, adheres easily and steadily on the surfaces and stays in place during paint spraying.

This plastic masking film too is provided with corona treatment, to protect surfaces from paint overspray and flaking.

I ordered these to cover windows while painting the outside of the houses I decorate. They are heavy enough that the windows are well protected, but light enough that I can tape them up quite simply with high adhesive masking tape. I would recommend them to keep the place tidy during any paint job. - Jonathan
