I want to use it to winterize a gazebo outdoor. I want to hang it not to frame it. What gauge do I need?
BEST ANSWER: It should be fine just keep in mind the colder it gets the more brittle it gets so if its -20 and you hit it with some thing it might crack but i use it on a tractor snow cover cab and have no issues just be gentle with it
can i use this in place of glass in a picture frame?
BEST ANSWER: I use this product in a large frame for removable winter storm windows on an outside porch. As far as a replacement for glass in a picture frame I would not do it because I believe it would be difficult to mount it without wrinkles. The plastic is quite clear but no replacement for glass. I'm sure a piece of glass would be considerably easier to work with and more permanent.
Can the product be “ welded together ?
BEST ANSWER: I have only sewn through it....and it doesn't seem to melt when ironed. It gets soft but so far I haven't melted it, though I haven't actually tried to.
I want to cover a 4foot round domed skylight to prevent leaks during winter months.Would 16 or 20 gauge be recommended? What outdoor water proof tape might be best?
BEST ANSWER: Either would work fine. The 16 gauge would be more flexible and let more light through. The 20 gauge would simply be a little thicker but might be a little harder to work with. Not sure about what type of tape to use. Check with Home depot about best water proof tape.
How is the film applied to a wall? Can it be easily removed in the future?
BEST ANSWER: I personally used this vinyl to line my brand new kitchen cabinets. It is invisible and it is perfect for this. I used some of it to make table covers. We have lots of friends over for playing games. I use it to protect my wooden surface from scratching when playing mahjongg and canasta. It easily stores when not in use. I have also used it as a protective surface under the kitty litter box. Also made placemats for under cat and dog food areas...
We’re trying to figure out a way to protect a section of our hall wall and floor molding that our two large Weimaraners keep hitting when they run and slide on the hardwood floor. We were thinking of tacking a piece to the wall, and wanted to cover the floor molding as well. Do you think this gauge will work or should we go higher or lower? Do you have any suggestions on the best methods to attach the vinyl?
BEST ANSWER: Hello, well I can not say for sure but I have both and the only difference between the 16 and 20 gauge is little. If the dogs have sharp claws/nails I would go with the 30 gauge it would last longer I would think. Hope this helps.
Will 16 gauge work in a aluminum frame with a rubber bead for a porch?
BEST ANSWER: Yes. It's very hard to work with. Has a tendency to bunch up at the corners. You have to keep at it.
I want to buy the 20 gauge for my car floors. Will that be strong enough for what I want to use it for or do I need to go higher? I want it to last. Also is it going to bend and stay in place and will it be each to cut?
BEST ANSWER: We use it to protect our wood conference room tables when we have events where drink/food may spill, etc. I think it would be much too thin for car floors

Which clear vinyl would be best for enclosing a screen porch?
BEST ANSWER: 20, 30, or 40 gauge are commonly used for enclosing screen porches. Of these gauges 20 is the lightest and most flexible, while 40 is the heaviest and most stiff.

WHICH GAUGE IS THE CLEAREST?
BEST ANSWER: All gauges are equally clear, but the lower gauges are more pliable so if the vinyl isn't completely flat, the light reflecting off the surface can make it appear more wavy. The higher gauges, like 60, 40, or 30, are stiff and the reflected light will have a more even look. This may make it appear clearer.
