Films

We’ve compiled high a performance film properties library to aid in the selection of the appropriate film for your application. These thin highly advanced polymer films can be extremely useful for applications that require the following:

  • Chemical resistance
  • Inertness
  • Dielectric strength
  • Temperature resistance
  • Low permeability to gas & moisture
  • Resilience to Weather
  • Optical Clarity
  • Releaseability
