While the term “Mylar” is typically used when referring generally to plastic film, Mylar® is actually the name of a popular polyethylene terephthalate (PET) film from DuPont Teijin Films™. Mylar® is technically BoPET (biaxially-oriented polyethylene terephthalate), however, most printers and processors know it by "Mylar" and call it as such.
