Image of MYLAR® A hazy polyester film

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 processability. Over time, where some films can harden with age, MYLAR® A films remain flexible while remaining resistant to moisture.

They are used for a broad range of industrial applications such as stencils, apparel stays, book jackets, carbon ribbon, control tape, drumheads, identifications, and membrane touch switches.
