It is hardy, almost non reflective, not slippery glossy smooth but no texture is visible. Be careful with handling as it easily "knicks" when you bend it or lift it up. I have all the colours and after 15 years some sheets have gone brittle and break at the edges

I bought this as a backdrop for product photography, and set it up as an infinite background by creating a curve. Says that it can be cleaned, I have had no luck. After shooting one product the marks left behind will not come clean without scrubbing, and the scrubbing destroyed the finish. This product creases very easily. I will stick with a paper roll, cheaper and easier to replace.

Very good all around for smallish objects.

Comments about TT Plast Plastic Background Sheet (51 x 40", Dove Gray, 1 Sheet):

I use the grey and dove grey. For my purposes the grey is essentially color neutral, the dove darker and warmer. One side is matte, the other has a very slight gloss, the combination gives you some options. It is tough but not indestructible. The surface eventually shows wear and marks and it can kink if you're not careful, but overall I find it a great option for objects smaller than a breadbox in "tabletop" setups. I tend to use the (very) slightly glossy side for bouncing a bit of light under objects, but it is not very prone to glare, though glare happens and sometimes works for the shot. I suspect the matte side is essentially glare-free. It cuts easily, is best stored rolled up or flat if you have the room, masking and artist's tape can be applied and removed without damage.

One thing I really like is it's smooth appearance approaching the macro level. My 1:2 lens shows some texture but TT Plast is superior to most other backgrounds in this respect.

    High-quality background. Easier to manage and stronger than paper, does not wrinkle like cloth, but does tend get kinks.

      I use the Foba plastic background sheets as background for small tabletop photography. I have this product in several colors because it is sturdy, yet pliable. It curves nicely, does not wrinkle, and is easy to clean.

        Comments about TT Plast Plastic Background Sheet (51 x 40", White, 1 Sheet):

        I do a good deal of tabletop product photography, and I wanted a background that was reasonable in size, durable, and easy to keep clean. Seamless paper is a pain my my uses. The Foba sheets provide a nice background in a number of color options, but they aren't so big they are like wrestling an octopus to put up and take down. The material is very thin, and it can kink if handled roughly, but these sheets are an ideal and affordable solution for the occasional tabletop photographer who doesn't have the luxury of a huge studio.

                        I photograph small to medium size figurative sculptures for entries into juried art competitions and shows. I had no problems fitting this sheet to my photo table and I like the contrast of my light colored work against the grey background.

                            I bought this to shoot jewelry against, and it gives me a lot of flexibility - I can roll it up or switch it out for another color quickly. It was easy to cut it to fit my space, and it's simple to clean. The only drawback - it can get bend marks in it if handled roughly, but for the price, this is a great backdrop.

                                Much more durable than seamless paper. A slight sheen for depth in the reflection. Wipes clean with a damp cloth. Try it you will not regret it!

                                    I have known about this product for many years. Why I did not try it sooner is a giant Homer Simpson DOH!
                                    A smooth slightly textured surface with just enough sheen to produce a subtle reflection for a sense of "grounding" of the subject. That is to say it does not appear to "float" or be disconnected from the surface. It cleans easily and surprisingly does not attract static or dust. This is a "keeper" in my bag of product photography tools.

                                      Comments about TT Plast Plastic Background Sheet (51 x 40", White, 1 Sheet):

                                      This is my second sheet after 2 years with the first sheet, I'm using this as seamless background for desktop shooting. Love the surface, it is simply beautiful when light and show fall on it.

                                        You can shine a light thru the background of this sheet for shooting glass or light it from the front and get a seamless white background. Durable. Also, the white is 'white balanced'; that is to say, it doesn't photograph as a light yellow.

                                          It is hardy, almost non reflective, not slippery glossy smooth but no texture is visible. Be careful with handling as it easily "knicks" when you bend it or lift it up. I have all the colours and after 15 years some sheets have gone brittle and break at the edges

                                          I shoot wine bottles/glasses & this is fantastic, you can wipe it clean & it doesn't wrinkle like paper. A must for product photography!
