What are plastic razor blades used for?

Razor blades are most often associated with shaving. A double-edged steel razor is also a standard tool for scraping sticker residue or glue from surfaces. A sharp steel razor is effective for scraping away gunk and grime; however, using a sharp steel razor also damages many surfaces.

This post discusses a safe solution for using the plastic razor blade.

What are plastic razor blades?

Plastic scraping blades are common everyday household tools. Windshield ice scrapers, plastic pot scrapers, and spatulas are examples of various plastic scraping blades. Plastic razor blades are also known as scraping blades. What makes them unique is their construction and the sharpness of the edges on each blade. Plastic razor blades are designed to mimic a steel razor blade and are fashioned into a double-edged, super sharp blade using different plastics.

Unlike its steel counterpart, a plastic razor blade is not intended to cut. Instead, it provides a sharp edge perfect for scraping or peeling without damaging surfaces. Plastic razor blades often come with a blade holder, allowing you to grip the handle while using the blade to scrape.

Uses for Plastic Razor Blades

Uses for plastic razor blades include scraping and peeling to remove price tags, stickers, decals, bumper stickers, tape, paint, and grime caught in tight spaces like between the kitchen sink and the counter. Plastic razor blades are a perfect tool for detailed cleaning and maintenance for homes, cars, boats, and many other jobs requiring delicate precision. 

Plastic razor blades are safe for vehicles such as cars, boats, aircraft, motorcycles, and bikes. A plastic razor is safe when working with household surfaces and items like appliances, cookware, countertops, furniture, marble, and tile. A plastic razor blade is an effective tool for removing adhesives, grime buildup, labels, stickers, paint, tape, wax, and many other substances that build up or get stuck where they aren't wanted.

Advantages of Using Plastic Blades vs. Steel Blades

Plastic blades are safe for almost any surface, allowing you to scrape away the toughest substances without scratching. Steel blades are rigid and do not conform to the contour of an object. In comparison, plastic blades can be made from hard but pliable plastic, conforming to the contour of an object and making residue removal much easier.
