Film Run Down: Mylar/Polyester

Mylar is the brand name for polyester. It comes in sheet or roll form and is very stable. It’s resistant to stretch, shrinking, chemicals, abrasions, tearing and heat and it also acts as an insulator. Mylar is not treated with plasticizers, which helps it to not become brittle and wear with age. This makes it the best option for industrial applications. These properties are further enhanced when combined with a polyester laminate. We recommend polyesters for warning and safety labels. We have a variety of finishes available: white (gloss and matte), silver (gloss, brushed and matte), silver tamper evident (void), clear, gold, computer printable. Thickness ranges from 1-10 mil, with or without adhesive, which can be customized to suit the surface.
