Why are there four types of film?
Each film has a unique strength of adhesive as different surfaces require different types of protection. Packexe® has custom designed four products, each uniquely branded and colour coded for easy identification, making it simpler to find the correct product with the suitable level of adhesive for your surface.
What are the benefits in comparison to the cardboard sheeting I am currently using?
The adhesive technology of Packexe® protection films provides a secure grip, preventing movement and rucking up, therefore reducing the risk of slips and trips. Packexe® allows protection right up to the edge of the surface, protecting against debris and spillages. The film can be vacuumed, swept or mopped throughout the project.
How long can you leave it down for?
It is recommended that Packexe® self-adhesive protection films are used for no more than 4-6 weeks
Can I use one film on all surfaces?
No, a different strength of adhesive is required for each type of surface in order for the film to stick securely and ensuring easy removal without leaving a residue. One film will not perform on all surfaces as it will be too sticky for some, leaving residue on removal and not sticky enough for others, causing it to shift, creating an unsafe surface.
I have used the wrong grade of film on a surface and it has left residue, what shall I do?
The best way to remove any residue is by using a damp cloth with diluted white spirit, six parts water to one part white spirit. If unsure, we recommend that you contact us for advice on the best way to remove it.
Are the films re-useable or can they only be used the once?
All films in the Packexe® range offer temporary protection and can only be used once.
Can I use Packexe® films on surfaces with under floor heating?
We recommend that you turn off the under floor heating before and during application of Packexe® films, as the heat may affect the performance of the adhesive.
What will happen if I drag something sharp over the film?
Packexe® self-adhesive protection films are very durable under general wear and tear; however, they are plastic films and will tear under intense pressure. We recommend that you double layer areas that are subject to heavy traffic.
Can the products be used outside?
Packexe® Glass & Glazing can be used on external glass and windows; however the other products in the range are designed for indoor use. If you are unsure, please contact us and we will be happy to offer advice.
Is it expensive?
No, when you calculate the cost of cleaning or replacing flooring, surfaces and glass. It is also quick and easy to use, saving on labour time and therefore cost.
Packexe® self-adhesive protection films are competitively priced in comparison to clear unbranded films, and offer higher traceability through the colour coded branding.
