Dura Skrim Patterning Material 74" is a lightweight clear plastic sheeting that works great as a patterning material. Dura Skrim is reinforced with a high density polyethylene ribbon weave to produce a highly tear resistant film where the ribbons shift and bunch in response to a tearing force. As a result, Dura Skrim is stretch and tear resistant and can be pulled tight over a frame or around an object without stretching out of shape. Perfect for patterning a dodger, bimini, or enclosure! Dura Skrim is also used for construction enclosures, temporary liners or covers, erosion control, shipping and packaging, fumigation covers, temporary walls, and remediation covers.
More specifically, Dura Skrim 2 is a clear 4-layer reinforced extrusion laminate. The outer layers consist of clear high-strength polyethylene film and they are reinforced with a minimum of a 1000 denier scrim laid in a diagonal pattern spaced 3/8" apart with an additional machine direction scrim every 9" across the width. The individual plies are then laminated together with molten polyethylene.
Use seamstick* (double sided tape) to temporarily stick the pattern material in place for a tight, wrinkle-free patterning surface to trace. Mark seam and cutting lines directly on the clear plastic. Remove the pattern and transfer to the actual canvas. This clear patterning material makes patterning very easy!

*To aid in patterning, Sailrite recommends using blue painter’s tape (or filament tape) and then applying seamstick (double sided tape) over top to hold the pattern material in place on hard objects like tubing and fiberglass. Using both will avoid leaving a sticky residue on the attachment surface when it’s time to remove the seamstick.
Please note: Dura Skrim will ship folded unless a full 100 yard roll is ordered.
