PROPERTIES & APPLICATIONS
Clear polyester sheet and film is chemically inactive in water and acts as a moisture barrier in many applications. It is also unaffected by oil, grease and most aromatics, making it an extremely versatile plastic. This makes it ideal for a wide variety of applications such as window films, electronic displays, drivers license and university ID cards, photographic printing, screen printing, applications where tear resistance is critical, magnetic recording media (video and audio), packaging, medical devices, and more.
Clear polyester sheet or film will retain its superior properties and remain tough, clear and flexible from minus -100°F (-73.33° C) to over 300°F (148.88° C). Since clear polyester contains no plasticizers, it will not become brittle or yellow with age under these or other normal conditions.
Polyester mirrors can be made from the metallized polyester roll stock and silver polyester is made by a deposition of aluminum onto 1 side of the film. We stock 0.002” and 0.005” thick. They make a great reflective surface, not a true mirror in any sense, just a neat shiny surface.
Clear polyester is an extraordinarily strong polyester film that grew out of the development of Dacron® in the early 1950's. During the 1960's cellophane gave way steadily to clear polyester with its superior strength, heat resistance, and excellent insulating properties. The unique qualities of clear polyester made new consumer markets in magnetic audio, videotape, capacitor dielectrics, packaging and batteries possible. By the 1970s, clear polyester had become a best-selling film, despite mounting competition from other products.Download the clear polyester film data sheet here.
