It is the world's broadest range of high-quality polyester film, with more than 930 basic grade types covering 90+ market segments and 140+ specific end uses.
Melinex® is a biaxially oriented polyester film from the Dupont™ Teijin films family of films, which also includes Mylar® polyester film and Cronar® polyester photographic film base
Mylar®® polyester film is ideal for a broad array of applications in the electrical, electronics, magnetic media, industrial specialty, imaging and graphics, and packaging markets.
It has an excellent balance of properties and extraordinary range of performance capabilities.
Mylar® polyester film, only by Dupont™ Teijin films, is available uncoated or coated in a broad variety of thickness and width.
Mylar® A films are tough, general purpose films that are transparent in 48 through 92 gauge and translucent in heavier gauges. They have a rough surface to provide ease of handling, good adhesion, and process ability. They are used for a broad range of industrial applications
General Product Info
Mylar® A films have balanced tensile properties and excellent resistance to moisture and most chemicals. They can withstand temperature extremes from -100°F to 300ºF. Mylar® does not become brittle with age under normal conditions, because it contains no plasticizers.
Mylar® A films are used extensively in a wide variety of markets. Some of them are:
Membrane touch switches
Pressure Sensitive Labels (plain or metallized)
Roll leaf (hot stamping)
FDA Food Contact Status -
All gauges of Mylar® A comply with the Food and Drug Administration regulation 21 CFR
177.1630 -- Polyethylene phthalate polymers. This regulation describes films which may be safely used in contact with all types of food excluding alcoholic beverages. Uncoated films such as Mylar® A can be used to contain foods during oven cooking or oven baking at temperatures above 250 °F.
