Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by yaplej Great way to add a more finished look to insulating your garage door.
These panels worked great to make my garage door insulation project feel more "finished" than the exposed back of the insulation. Just used a tape measure and utility knife to cut the panel to fit inside each section of my garage door and installed them right on top of the insulation batting.
I cut each section to fit inside the lip along the top and bottom of each door panel. The sides just fit inside the garage door frame. If needed white duct tape could be used to seal any small gaps between the frame and the plastic panel but I cut them pretty tight so they fit snug in most cases.
In my case I used the garage door insulation kit sold at Home Depot but adding these panels to the back it would have been cheaper to use just typical 23" wide R13 maybe something like Model # BF11.
Wish that the panel was just a little thicker but it still worked well and turned out good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by aprilswebpage Worked Perfect for Shelf Backing
I was originally going to go with a different plywood panel for the backing on my 2x4 storage shelves but saw this at my Home Depot. It was perfect! I will say it's hard to work with by yourself because of the thinness and the size of the sheet (making it flimsy), but clamps helped me achieve what I was after. I used it as backing on these 2x4 studs (left this way by the previous home owner) and turned it into shelves in my crafting and woodworking area. I needed something that would prevent items from falling off the shelves, and this does the job. The best thing about it? I didn't have to get an employee at Home Depot to cut it some so it would fit into my Jeep, and I was able to cut it with scissors - so I didn't have to drag out my circular saw just for this. I just used my nail gun to attached it to the back. This looks a LOT better than my original plan would have.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MadDog Excellent shelf liner!!
I use this sheeting to line cabinet shelves and garage storage shelves. It is a clean white color, it is very durable material, withstanding long term skidding of pots and pans and it is waterproof. I recommended it to a friend of mine recently and when he saw it in his shelves he was very happy. It does not wear out like contact paper and is attractive. It is about 50 cents per square foot and is .063" inch thick which is very thick for a shelf liner, hence its durability. It will last for years on your shelves and will remain attractive as well. I think this is the best shelving and cabinet liner that you could have. I use a utility knife, a straight edge and a piece of plywood underneath to cut it to the desired size.
At Home Depot they call it Poly Wall and it is called Tex-Wall on the product label. You will find it in the building materials section.
I added a close up photo of a storage island created with stainless wire racks which a renter innovated. He enhanced the look of this island using this white poly sheeting on top of the stainless racks which also helps it to blend with my white kitchen cabinets.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bruhaha Easy to work with
Used a sheet to replace a cracked panel on one side of shower, rather than having to replace all three sections. Stuck to wall with liquid nails with no problem. Very easy to cut, but the materials seems durable and easy to clean.

I used it as crate liner in dog crates, stain resistant easy to clean. no scratches or mars. I use in on or near doors to prevent marking areas with claws or toenails. Many thanks for an affordable durable product

Cuts easily with a router bit or razor knife. Whatever you do use only FRP adhesive. I tried contact cement and the material bubbled up on me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DGF Great for wire shelf liner / cover
Cut into 16-inch wide strips (to fit on my 16-inch wire kitchen pantry shelves) using a utility knife. Just score on one side with a straight edge, bend, then cut freehand from the other side to complete the cut. Easy. Next just lay on top of wire shelf so pantry stuff sits up without tipping or falling through the wire. Got 3 shelf liners out of each sheet for a cost of roughly 7 bucks apiece. I only needed 5 foot liners, but could have gotten 8 footers if I'd have needed them. They lay nice and flat and are thicker/nicer than the roll of shelf liner you can buy from the manufacturer. I looked far and wide and these are the best bang for the buck anywhere.

First off this material is not FRP or NRP it is a 1/16" (.06) Polypropylene material. The divider strips for it are pretty stout but the corner pieces are kind of flimsy. I used as a tub surround because the inexpensive tub surrounds are Polystyrene and brittle as well as being 5 piece (4 vertical joints) that need to be caulked an shelves that I don't really care for, with this I was able to use three sheets and only have 3 vertical joints, I could have taken it all the way to the ceiling but I chose to only make it 60" high.
The adhesive I used was Loctite power grab all purpose (the kind that says 0 sec grab), I tested with a couple scrap pieces of "polywall" and drywall to make sure it bonded well and didn't deform the "polywall", I tested both sides of the "polywall" (one is flat finish and one is kind of shiny) and both adhered very well. I put the adhesive on the wall in a 6" grid pattern, there is a little lumpiness to it but the wall wasn't perfect to begin with, hindsight I probably would have been better to use a trowelable adhesive that is compatible with Polypropylene. I used tin snips to cut out the sizes I needed and that worked pretty darn good, also a hole saw for the fixture locations.
Before I installed the panels I siliconed the corner and divider strips to their respective panels the day before, and siliconed the corners an other half of the divider prior to placing panels on the wall.
I think it will be watertight and look a lot better than the old surround once it's fully trimmed out and caulked. All in all it will cost about the same as a cheap surround and a little more tedious but I think it will hold up a lot better. The key to any tub surround no mater the material is using a good 100% silicone caulking. I plan on using the excess material to line drawers and shelves which is a plus.
For the proper instructions go to Parkland plastics and search "polywall", they even tell you by name what cleaners can be used.
