Clear plastic sleeves, also known as polyethylene sleeves, are a type of protective cover that is made of clear plastic and is placed over the cover of a book or magazine to protect it from damage such as scratches, stains, or tears. They are often used to protect items such as books, magazines, photographs, and documents, and are a popular choice for protecting items because they are affordable, easy to use, and provide a clear view of the cover.
Clear plastic sleeves are usually made of polyethylene, a type of plastic that is durable, lightweight, and resistant to moisture, dust, and other environmental factors. They are available in a variety of sizes to fit different types of books and magazines and can be easily inserted and removed from the book or magazine.
Some clear plastic sleeves are also available with adhesive backing which allows for a permanent application, and can be used for items that are going to be handled frequently or for items that are going to be kept for a long period of time.
Clear plastic sleeves are widely used in libraries, archives, and other institutions to protect books, magazines, and other materials from damage and to extend their lifespan. They can also be used in homes, schools, and offices to protect personal collections and documents.
