Product Highlight / A Cut Above the Rest – Floor Protection

June 28, 2018

Product Highlight: X•Paper

Regular contractor’s floor protection paper has been around a long time—reliable floor protection to be sure. But, most brown builder’s paper soak through and tear, which is not a great choice if your floors need to cure.

A teacher might give those temporary floor protection coverings a “B” grade. Wouldn’t you rather use an A+ surface and floor protection paper? Here’s how Trimaco’s X-Paper Heavy Duty Flooring Protection makes the grade:

  • It’s 1.5 times thicker than traditional brown builder’s paper, making it durable and long-lasting. You won’t have the frequent rips and tears from general site and foot traffic.
  • It repels minor spills, decreasing the chance you’ll have a liquid breach that could damage floors.
  • It’s also breathable and allows floors to cure to their natural beauty and strength.

Easy to install floor protection

To install:
1. Determine how many rolls of X-Paper you’ll need to cover your surface.
2. Next, simply roll out X-Paper on the area which needs protecting.
3. Cut to desired length using scissors and tape down with one of Trimaco’s tapes. Use it with many of Trimaco’s Heavy Duty Tapes or Masking Tapes.
4. Before taping to the floor, make sure to do a spot test to ensure no residue is left behind or finish is pulled up.
5. Work away without worry!

X-Paper is easy to work with, affordable, and made in the U.S. It works with vinyl flooring, as well as concrete floors and hardwood floors. Give your brown builder’s paper go-to an upgrade. X-Paper is available in pallets, packs and rolls.
