Selection parameters for short-term surface protection

When identifying solutions for short-term surface protection, some or all of the following five parameters should be considered:
  1. Time: How long will temporary surface protection be adhered to the product? Typical times can range from one hour to years.
  2. Temperature: What will the exposure temperature be? For example, in Phoenix or Texas, extremely hot temperatures can be common and tends to soften any adhesive films. Also, will the product be exposed to cold temperatures during shipping or storage?  Paint or spray on liquid protection for tubs or windows are both cold sensitive.
  3. Temperature exposure: What will the duration of temperature exposure be? 
  4. Substrate: Is the substrate that will be protected metal, wood, plastic, glass or other material?
  5. Conditions: What conditions will the product be exposed to, for instance, salt in coastal environments high humidity, or ultraviolet exposure from sunlight, fluorescent light or other sources?

As always, feel free to contact your surface protection experts at Builders Site Protection if you need help determining the best products to use for your particular jobsite.
