Hello everyone,

This might be a silly question, and I'm being a bit obsessive but.

I bought a VX229H IPS, matte monitor screen. I also have been using the LDPE (Low-density polyethylene), plastic wrap for a week to protect it from dust after use.

My question is, does this constant putting on and taking of, of the plastic scratches the surface of the screen?

I have been researching a bit into physics hardness, regarding that "The principle is that an object made of a harder material will scratch an object made of a softer material."
Regarding LDPE, I've found the general material proprieties (it includes the hardness in Vickers measurement):

Hardness (Vickers)      7.75e7 ‐ 9.71e7 Pa (metric); 7.9 ‐ 9.9 HV (english units)

So my question is, is the LDPE plastic wrap a safe cover for the screen?, I know that TV displays also come with this same wrap.

Can anyone comment?

Btw I'm referring to the wrap that usually comes with every display.
