A trade name for sheet polyester. Mylar may be used by artists in a number of ways: it can be drawn on or serve as a printing element. Alternatively photo stencils may be cut out of it or it may also be used in place of paper as a substrate for a drawing or painting.
DuPont trade name for polyester film.
Film or tape made of polyester used as buffer. Available in thicknesses from .005" to .015" . It is used for both stationary sealing buffer as well as moving belt buffer for automatic pull-through indexing equipment. Some "tensilized" mylar sheets show significant curling after use, which may be objectionable.

An uncoated, clear, polyester plastic made by Dupont. It is chemically stable and does not release harmful gases. Mylar D is used in sheet protectors and photograph sleeves, and is safe for encapsulation.
Mylar is a tough film of polyester, usually used in recording tapes and electrical insulation.
A clear, tough polymeric polyester. Produced in the form of a clear film.
A readily available plastic which will not adhere to polyester or epoxy resins, or to cyanoacrylate glues.
Trade name for polyester films.
A clear, flexible polyester film widely used as a base for computer magnetic tape, and for film ribbons used with office machines. It is also used in phototypesetting and offset preparation because it exhibits the mechanical strength and dimensional stability needed for stripping positives. Mylar is used as the carrier for the emulsion in negative film, as a laminate for labels, and as a reinforcement on index tabs.
A transparent plastic sheet used for registration of the print or as a surface for an image to be drawn on in order to transfer the drawing to the plate photographically. Mylar is specifically used for these purposes because it is dimensionally stable, not stretching or shrinking when exposed to water.
Trademark of DuPont for a polyester film or sheeting. Resin casts will not stick to MYLAR(tm) nor will the MYLAR(tm) leave marks on drying castings.
DuPont trade name for a polyester material.
A polyester based film specifically suited for stripping film upon because of its mechanical strength.
Invented in the 1960s. Mylar is the proprietary name for sheet polyester, an inert materials in which fragile documents are often stored. With the advent of Mylar, the need for lamination became obsolete.
Dupont's trademark for a durable plastic (polyester) film often recommended for storing stamps or covers because of its excellent chemical stability and the protection offered.
trademark for a polyester film used to store coins.
Trade name. Smooth plastic material used as stiffener in hang glider sails.
Trade name for polyester film manufactured by the E & I DuPont DeNemours Company.
A polyester film occasionally used to make wallpaper with a foil-like appearance. It will not tear but it will burn.
metallic plastic available in sheet or plaited tube form. The tubing can be used to simulate scales on the flanks or fry imitating lures/streamer flies.
A registered trademark of Dupont for polyester films. Mylar-D is the most stable polyester film and is used by picture framers to encapsulate art on paper, paper documents or other planar objects where it is important to be able to view the entire object.
Dupont's trademark for clear, tough polymeric polyester film.
Dupont trademark for polyethylene terephtalate (polyester) film.
Mylar is a registered trademark of the Dupont-Teijin Corporation. Is the industrial brand name for that corporation's polyester (PET) film. Polyester film is a staple of multi-layer packaging for a wide variety of applications. Y - Nylon - Polyamide resins, with very high melting points, excellent clarity and stiffness. Two types are used for films - nylon-6 and nylon-66. The latter has much higher melt temperature, thus better temperature resistance, but the former is easier to process, and it is cheaper. Both have good oxygen and aroma barrier properties, but they are poor barriers to water vapour. Also, nylon films can be cast (see CAN), or oriented, (see BON). pacity - Hiding power of pigmented (mostly white) plastic films. It is beneficial for packing materials sensitive to light (visible or ultraviolet).
The registered trade name of Dupont's polyester film.
In offset preparation, a polyester film specially suited for stripping positives because of its mechanical strength and dimensional stability.
A tough polyester material used as an insulator. NASA The National Aeronautics and Space Administration which oversees the space program in the United States.
Trade name for a polyester film used widely for storing museum collection. MylarÂ® is specially imported and extensively used even in artefact displays in showcases. It provides a good physical barrier between an artefact and the environment.
A non-metallic material derived from polyester.
A laminated film which is strong and very low in stretch. Used for reinforcements and on its own in areas of the sail needing more stiffness.
A stable polyester film used as a base for film mounting or a grid for mounting perforating and scoring rules.
A polyester film specially suitable for its mechanical strength and dimensional stability. Provided in varying thicknesses.
A plastic film which, when present on the tab extension or binding edge, greatly extends the life of the piece. Mylar® comes in many colors. Print can easily be read through the colored Mylar®. When applied to the binding edge, this is usually referred to as reinforcing, strengthening the drill holes. Reinforcing tape is available in clear and gold. Please note: Mylar® can not be applied to a tab extension after it has been die cut, only before. Reinforcing can not be applied after drilling, only before.
