View Full Version : My polycro source went from 1.5 to .7 ... any suggestions for sources?

I used to buy the large window film. Smaller one was .7. the large ones were 1.5. Suddenly polycro (or polycyro as it is also known) sold by my supplier on Amazon is only the .7.

Since I like it a little tougher for my footprints, etc. I was looking for a heavier source.

My google searches are probably just defective, but since I did not get far, I thought I'd ask if anyone has a thicker source. Perhaps 1.5 isn't the right thickness anymore to search for something heavier than .7?

Thanks for any ideas.

No guarantee that they still sell it.
My source for 1.5 polycryo is Ace Hardware Online here in Texas. I have it shipped to my local store. Its seasonal so you may not find it again until the fall. I got the patio door outside film and its big. I get several pieces for my 1 & 2 person tents.

Home Depot and Lowes generally carry it in both weights.

It's a seasonal product... odds are good your source will undry up in the fall.

Looks like it's mainly off the shelf at Hopey Depot these days up here, in Texas I have to imagine it got pulled months ago.

Gossamer Gear sells a 1.0 if you get hard up.

No experience- appears bad rating is for the tape, but 1.5mils.
