FAQ’s 

Why is split film polypropylene popular?
It’s extremely good value for money whilst also being fairly strong, durable and also thin and very lightweight – for this reason it’s suitable for a range of applications. It’s also water and rot resistant making it ideal for outdoor and marine uses.

Would this product be safe to use when working around live electrical wires?
Yes. One of the major benefits to this material is that is has dielectric qualities, meaning that it is an insulator. It is often used for industrial work around electrical lines for this reason. If you anticipate electrical exposure, this product would be ideal and safe to use.

Will this product float?
Yes. This is another feature that makes polypropylene a popular material for marine and sailing applications.
