My garage is my workshop. It is also my spray room. Each time I spray, I need to drape sections of the garage with some form of plastic. I had just about given up spraying due to the hassle dealing with the 9×12 plastic sheets, then I discovered 3M Advanced Masking Film. The film comes in a roll about 12.5 inches tall. You tape the film up without unfolding it. Once the 12.5 inch wide film is taped up, you pull down on the back of the film and the it unfolds to a full 99 inches. It makes draping the garage simple enough I’ve begun spraying again.

The other pictures show the plastic film behind my spray booth.

I could see this very useful for home remodeling.
How is the cost? Is it reusable?
If its not reusable, it might end up being too costly to use for small spray projects.

Sorry I don’t remember the price. I bought it on a whim while grumbling about regular plastic sheets. I’ll check next time I’m at big box home store.

Also sorry about the second picture not being in the correct orientation.

According to HD's website, a 90-foot roll is about $17. If it was a small project, you could make 2 10×10 booths out of a single roll.

I have used it to turn by kitchen into a “spray booth” when I tinted my cabinets.
Works good.
Although, when I spray lacquer in the garage I don’t need to mask anything off. The lacquer dries so quickly it only leaves a little dust on flat surfaces.
