Plastic Sheeting for use in building and construction
Although plastic sheeting can be used for any protective use, a very common use is for protecting flooring from mess or small impact during building work. Plastic Sheeting comes in large rolls so that it can be quickly deployed over large areas to protect from dust, dirt, cement and water. As this kind of sheeting is quite thick it can often be reclaimed after light-use and rolled up again for use another day. Even when used as a disposable covering, plastic sheeting offers an excellent and cheap flooring protection. Plastic sheeting is also used on construction sites to isolate areas between building work and help prevent dust transferring from one work area to another.
You can obtain Builders Rolls of plastic sheeting plus sheeting designed for specific building use such as for adding as a Damp Proof Membrane (DPM) to prevent rising damp as part of a Damp Proofing Course (DPC) from the sites:

Polypropylene (PP) is a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide variety of applications, including packaging (e.g. greetings card bags and flower sleeves), textiles, stationery, plastic parts and reusable containers of various types.
Polypropylene is not as sturdy as polyethylene, but it has benefits that make it the better choice in some situations, a good example is a card bag made with polypropylene which as opposed to polythene is crystal clear making for a better look.

Shrink film and Stretch wrap
Another popular form of plastic sheeting is shrink film made with polymer plastic film commonly used to cover pallets. Once shrink film is heated it will perfectly conserve whatever it covers as it will shrink tightly leaving no gaps or holes on the packaging. Shrink film is available in a variety of models and sizes and is generally used to pack products such as boxes, tapes, CDs, food, DVDs, photographs and frames.
Stretch wrap is a polyethylene plastic generally used to hold boxes on a pallet for transport. Stretch wrap is pulled around the load and stretched holding the load tight.
