Self-adhesive, clear covering film is thin plastic wrap similar to cling-film which can be used to cover books, maps, documents, and so on. The wrap is applied for presentation and protection purposes, guarding, for instance, against wet or dust.
Self-adhesive film forms a temporary bond with the contact surface, “clinging” to it. Because it is temporary, it is easily removable, allowing for repositioning. Self-adhesive film is available in matt and gloss.
