Why Choose Polyester Film?

Many of the unique characteristics of polyester film are the direct result of biaxial orientation during film manufacturing. Polyester film leads the pack with an exceptional combination of optical, physical, mechanical, thermal, and chemical properties. These features give polyester film a clear performance advantage when compared to other options. And, for all of the environmentalists out there, polyester film is among the most environmentally friendly thermo-plastic engineered films made.
