Protex® 20VS

Additional Info

  • Description:

    20 mil latex saturated paper.

  • Application Surface: Metals, Plastics, Glass, Painted Surfaces
  • Substrate: Paper
  • Thickness: 20 MIL (paper)
  • Application:

    Used to protect acrylic windows, canopies and windshields, as well as bare metals, glossy, polished and painted surfaces. The paper is vinyl coated on one side and will withstand more abrasion than comparable papers. PROTEX 20VS has been manufactured to meet rigid specifications of the aircraft industry.

    One of the advantages to the PROTEX 20VS adhesive system is that if the adhesive-coated side of the paper comes into contact with itself (e.g. if the paper is folded), the product will not block. The two surfaces can be pulled apart without the adhesive being pulled off the paper backing on either side. This will prevent having to dispose of any unusable product. 

    Self wound with lower tack level than 20V.
