From the Q & A section........................

Can this plastic be painted ?
Asked by Roger 11 months ago

Verified Reply - Eric This is high density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic. I suggest you check with your paint supplier for the best choice of primer and paint. With the flexibility of this plastic there will certainly need to be a flex agent added.
How much does the roll weigh?
Asked by Jesse 4 years ago

Verified Reply - Eric This 25 foot roll of plastic weighs 23 pounds.
Also clarified that it's 22 inches tall, roll is 25 feet long.

Related, and perhaps with clues as to best installation practices.

2000mc's experience reinforces my worst fears.

Polyethylene HDPE
HDPE has a working temperature of 212 degrees F - 220 degrees F under low load conditions and it may be autoclaved at sterilizable temperatures.
Maybe you can source this as a flat product in sheets and avoid the recoiling issues?

Perhaps bonded to a rigid cellular foam backing?
