4 Gauge Clear Vinyl is the thinnest gauge we offer. It may be thin, but it’s also durable, flexible, and waterproof. These qualities make it great for covering tablecloths and winterizing and enclosing screen porches, patios, and verandas. It can also be used for sewing and quilting projects, like photo holders for quilts and clear bags or bag linings.

I am a scrapbooker and would like to buy vinyl to use as covers for my books. (The original covers do not fit once you add your pages.) I just need something to cover the book like we used to do in high school with paper bags? Would the 4 gauge work?
A shopper on Apr 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I do recall the brown paper book covers, and I think it would probably work very well, but you might order an inexpensive swatch first to make sure it is not any heavier than you think it is. The 4 oz. size is very flexible, so would lend itself to folding the edges. The question is just how bulky it will get in the spots where multiple folds occur. The bulk can be reduced in a more simple design than a cover equiring folds of multiple thicknesses. As I recall, we did do that with the brown paper as well.
Is the 4 gage too heavy to cover food outdoors? Want to cover outdoors appetizer table at wedding. Will be under tent. Wanted something a bit heavier than the standard catering plastic roll.
A shopper on Sep 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The gauge for clear vinyl is actually opposite than what you might think. Low numbers are thin and high numbers are thick. This 4 gauge would be too thin. If you want the vinyl to drape over the sides, the 8 or 10 gauge would work. If you want a heavy vinyl for just the top, 40 gauge would be best. We recommend ordering a sample to be sure that it will work for you. See more info about clear vinyl here:
Can I use this to cover chicken wiring in my chicken coop to winterize it? I would still like to see in and them see out and would like sunlight to get it. what gauge would you recommend for this purpose? Also will I be able to staple it to the wooden parts?
A shopper on Dec 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think it would be fine. I use it in sewing and it stands up to the washing machine and whatever else gets thrown at it.. when you staple it I would make sure to use cardboard strips and turn it under at least half an inch, that way it will give it more stability when you staple it. I hope this helps to answer your question.

A shopper on Apr 29, 2018

I plan on using this for a wall protector behind a ping pong table to prevent scuffing and getting the wall dirty. Would it be best to glue this to the wall with 3M adhesive spray?
A shopper on Apr 19, 2018

1. Use thicker 8 gauge
2. Use removable wall hanger tabs, like for pictures and calendars, across top of sheet (and possibly sides/bottom) instead of gluing.

I want to cover some shelves to keep my cats from breaking things. I used plexiglass from picture frames I got at the Goodwill, but would like to cut it to size. I do not know what gauge to order. Any suggestions?
A shopper on Nov 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Are you looking for something rigid like plexiglass? The clear vinyl is flexible but it could work for your situation. Really any gauge could work, but you're probably looking for something on the thicker side that's more rigid than the lower gauges. If so, the 40 gauge would be good. Medium gauges like 16 could work too. We recommend ordering samples to see what will work best for your project.
