MYLAR® A (POLYESTER FILM)

Material Information

Mylar® A is a grade of DuPont’s trade name for polyester film. Mylar® is a tough, flexible, general-purpose film that has a rough surface to provide ease of handling, good adhesion, and processability. Mylar® A has balanced tensile properties and excellent resistance to moisture and most chemicals. It can withstand a broad temperature range (-100º F to 300º F) and does not become brittle under normal conditions because it contains no plasticizers. Its excellent electrical properties and performance capabilities make Mylar® A ideal for use in electrical applications, electronics, industrial specialty, and graphics markets. Mylar® A is available in transparent or translucent gauges in the form of film.
