Halar ® ECTFE (Ethylene-chlorotrifluoroethylene) Film provides excellent purity, chemical resistance, good electrical properties, a broad-use temperature range from cryogenic to 300°F (150°C), and meets the requirements of UL-94 V-0 vertical flame test in thicknesses as low as 7 mils (0.18 mm).
It is a tough material with excellent impact strength and wear resistance. Halar® 300 resin. Custom sized sheeting available.
Tefzel® Optically Clear Film is an extremely durable, thin polymeric film closely related to PTFE fluorocarbon resin. Of all the PTFE fluoropolymer family, Tefzel® (ETFE) is the most tough/ durable. Flexible and nearly 100 percent transparent, Tefzel® Optically Clear Film has excellent mechanical strength and reliability against cracking and abrasion. In outdoor applications, Tefzel® shows very little degradation over a long period of time despite constant UV radiation exposure, making it a suitable long term substitute for glass. Tefzel® Optically Clear Film features easy processibility and high-energy radiation resistance.
Film types are:Type LZ--General-purpose film, Type CLZ--Treated one-side for improved cementability, and Type CLZ-20--Treated both sides for improved cementability. Tefzel® films can be thermoformed, laminated, heat-sealed, die-stamped, and oriented for use in many applications including high flex lightweight wiring insulation, composite part mold release, anti-corrosive valve linings, non-stick roll covers, rupture disks, high frequency microwave circuitry, pharmaceutical cap liners, sterile packaging, cable insulation, microphone electret membranes, photovoltaic cell glazing, anti-graffiti coverings, erasable surface coverings, automotive airbag systems, fuel hose permeation barrier, hot melt adhesive and thousands more possible applications.
Mylar® is a DuPont® developed and manufactured oriented, multi-use, versatile polyester (PET) film. Throughout our catalog, a few characteristics unitize this product line; Mylar® does not become brittle with age under normal conditions because there are no plasticizers, it is archival quality, dimensionally stable, chemical resistant, color consistent, good clarity, non-yellowing, non-tearing, temperature range of -100 to 300F, electrically insulating, balanced tensile properties, and excellent moisture resistance (non-wettable). CS Hyde Company carries three types of Mylar® film, Type A (standard industry grade), optically clear, and metalized.
Type A Mylar® is our standard grade PET film. It is a tough, general purpose film that’s transparent in 48 (.5mil) through 92 gauge (1mil), and translucent in higher thicknesses.
Optically Clear Polyester PET film features similar qualities, except this product is transparent up to 10mil thickness.
Metalized Polyester PET film features a bright metallic finish and is available in stock in silver finish. Silver metalized Polyester PET film has a super reflective, mirror-like surface.
Mylar® Polyester PET is ideally suited for a wide range of uses such as packaging, printing, electronics, protective overlay, barrier protection, apparel and many industrial applications. Because of Mylar® Polyester's inherent physical properties, it's a great choice if you are looking for a high performance plastic film/sheet. Custom sized sheeting available.
An extremely high temperature resistance combined with excellent mechanical, electrical, and chemical resistance makes PEEK™ (Polyetheretherketone) a high performance semi-crystalline thermoplastic suitable for use in a wide variety of demanding applications.
While maintaining similar dielectric properties, this film features higher tear and chemical resistance than Kapton® Polyimide HN, FN, and CR films, as well as better barrier performance against oxygen and water vapor, lower moisture absorption, and superior resistance to hydrolysis. This makes PEEK™ film well suited to hot, humid environments.
Mechanically, this film is capable of a high tensile strength of 18.9 kpsi (130 MPa), a flexural strength of 23.6kpsi (163 MPa) and a Rockwell hardness of 99 (R Scale).
PEEK™ is capable of maintaining its properties up to very high temperatures (continuous use of -70 to 500F), is UL RTI rated up to 464F, and has a melting point of 644F. PEEK™ also boasts a heat deflection temperature (1.8MPa) of 306F. 0.012-0.280mm thickness carries an HB flammability rating, while 0.50-0.75mm has a V-1 rating.
PEEK™ meets many aerospace, automotive, fire, smoke and toxicity, food/water, medical/pharmaceutical, and military approvals and standards. Custom sized sheeting available. PEEK™ is available with adhesive as well, exclusively from CS Hyde Company as PEEK Tape.
