calendar-icon 12 April 2023

Paper or plastic sheet, which is better? When it comes to protection, both paper and film can be valuable solutions in painting projects.  Each material has its own advantages and peculiarities, which is why, depending on the project, the amount of time you want to invest, and most importantly, the results you want to achieve, you need to choose quality solutions not only because they are made from the best products on the market, but also because they are innovative because they are designed using state-of-the-art techniques.  In this article, we will take a closer look at the entire range of Q1 solutions specifically designed to meet all the needs arising from painting and renovation work.

Q1® Pre-Folded Masking Film

Q1® Pre-Folded Masking Film is a resistant masking film with a special treatment ideal to protect surfaces from paint overspray and flaking. Thanks to its static cling, this film sticks easily and regularly on the surfaces, staying in place during painting or paint spraying operations, even in windy conditions. Q1® Pre-Folded Masking Film is the right solution for multi-coat paint applications because it helps to avoid re-masking operations and to prevent liquids and paint bleed-through. For high performance, Q1® Pre-Folded Masking Film should be used in combination with Q1® Masking Tapes and Q1® Masking Film Dispenser, although it is also fully compatible with the most common hand masker machines on the market.

Q1® Pre-Taped Washi Film

Suitable for indoor and outdoor projects, Q1® Pre-Taped Washi Film is ideal for masking any kind of surface; small, medium or large, it doesn’t matter: Q1® Pre-Taped Washi Film is available in various sizes. Electrostatically treated, this film provides a quick-stick adhesion, conforming well to those parts more difficult to cover such as curves or corners.  Pre-taped with Q1® Precision Line Masking Tape allowing razor-sharp lines, Q1® Pre-Taped Washi Film is removable without a trace of adhesive residue for up to six months after use (indoor only).

Q1® Cover All Dust Sheet

Fast and easy to unfold, Q1® Cover All  is the best solution when it takes to protecting delicate surfaces like floors and carpets or heavy furniture from paint, dust, spills and overspray.  Q1® Cover All has been designed with an exclusive patented system which allows it to be unfolded easier and faster than other products in the market. This film is also electrostatically charged so it has an excellent adherence on all surfaces.

Q1® Floor ProBoard 

Made of 100% recycled and biodegradable paper, Q1® Floor ProBoard is an eco-friendly solution which assures  long-lasting floor protection. Defined by a longer length and a lighter weight, Q1® Floor Pro Board is easy to use, place and move during masking operations. This floor protection solution provides a high level of protection from paint spills and prevents blocks moisture and liquids from getting through to the surface, offering high performance even in wet conditions. For a stable and safe fastening, Q1® Floor Pro Board should be used with 3450 Q1® Multiple Purpose Indoor Masking Tape.

This solution adheres perfectly to wood and metal, matching difficult curves or corners, ensuring a quick stick with reliable clean removal without leaving residue.
