Product Highlight / A Cut Above the Rest – Temporary Floor Protection Paper

March 31, 2022

Looking for a reliable and affordable way to protect your floors during construction or renovation? Look no further than Trimaco’s X-Paper, a temporary floor protection paper. Our paper is designed to protect all types of floors, including hardwood, laminate, tile, and more.

Product Highlight: X•Paper

Traditional Contractor Paper options have been around for a long time. However, brown builder’s paper and red rosin paper cannot withstand large paint spills and heavy traffic without tearing easily. Stop applying and reapplying your temporary floor protection, and upgrade to Trimaco’s X-Paper.

What is Flooring Paper Used For?

This heavy-duty floor protection paper is 1.5x thicker than traditional brown builder’s paper. X-Paper provides some protection against water and paint spills, and will not rip from general site foot traffic. Proudly made in the USA, and designed to allow floors to breathe during the curing process. X-Paper is truly a cut above the rest when compared to other surface protection papers.

How to Install Flooring Paper

  1. First, determine how many rolls of X-Paper you’ll need to cover your surface. All rolls measure 36 inches in width and 120 feet in length.
  2. Next, simply roll out X-Paper on the area which needs protecting.
  3. Cut to desired length using scissors. Overlap the seams and tape together with one of Trimaco’s tapes. We recommend using our Easy Mask Blue Painter’s Tape.
  4. To ensure your temporary floor protection paper stays in place, tape the perimeter down as well. **Whichever tape you decide to utilize, we highly recommend testing in an inconspicuous spot to prevent damage.
  5. 5. Work away without worry!
