Color print advertisement for Saran, the trade name for polyvinylidene chloride, which can be formed into monofilaments or a thin plastic film. The advertisement features an illustration of man on a stepladder holding a large window screen; he appears to be winking at the viewer. The accompanying text details the qualities of Saran filaments for window screens and other commercial and military applications. The text notes that Saran screen "is on war duty" in "the Pacific and other fighting fronts."
