7.5 mil adhesive-backed material comes with a
repositionable low-tack backing to perfectly secure your
stencil in place. This durable, reusable plastic material
can be used on any painted surface, floor, sign, car,
boat, or craft project. The adhesive backing assures that
paint will not seep under the stencil design if you are
using liquid paints, spray paints or inks. Additionally,
the low-tack of this material will allow you to easily
lift the stencil from the surface and adhere it over and
Most painting stencils are cut from standard 7.5
mil material. This is a durable, reusable material that
is ideal for painting on walls, wood, floors, fabrics
and most surfaces. It can be used with any paint and can
be cleaned with most paint cleaners (from soap & water
and citrus based cleaners to paint thinner). The thinner
gauge films will generally create a finer image on the
surface you are painting without creating an edge around
the cut-outs. Thicker gauge films may be more durable
for certain projects, but tend to allow the paint to build
up on the edges of the cut-out portion.
Our 10 mil material is great for projects that
require heavy repeated use and repeated cleaning of a
stencil. The 10 mil film is ideal for outdoor use on parking
lots, patios, walkways, driveways and concrete surfaces.
Our 14 mil film is used for our entire Sculpture Stencil™
Collection. It is the only material that should be used
for creating a “raised stenciling effect”.
Our 14 mil film is ideal for using Stencil Paste, Crackle
Paste or other paste mediums to create dimension. 14 mil
can also be used for industrial heavy-duty painting applications
as it is thicker and more durable.
This is our thickest and most rugged material.
Ultra Flex™ is designed for industrial level stenciling
jobs. Surfaces like parking lots, streets & highways,
storm drains, shipping crates, warehouse floors, or any
industrial stencil being completed with spray equipment,
marking paints, line-striping equipment or other industrial
grade methods should consider using 40 or 60 mil Ultra Flex™.
The material is heavy, and resists being blown around
from minor winds gusts. Stencils can be rolled or bent
to conform around some surfaces and cleaned with any solvent
or thinner. Not all items are available in 40 or 60 mil Ultra
Flex™, please call if you have any questions.
