Mylar® polyester film is a flexible, exceptionally strong and durable transparent film with an unusual balance of properties making it suitable for many industrial applications. Mylar sheet in 190 micron thickness is commonly used for stencil making.

Laser cut stencils have many advantages over traditional methods of manufacture with few drawbacks; one of the main benefits is the accuracy of 0.2mm. With traditional bladed cutting systems, the cutting blade touches the material, which may move or tear when being cut, but the laser beam cuts the stencils from a distance hence there is no material movement.

Type A Mylar® is primarily used for release application, office supplies, electrical insulation and industrial laminations when combined with other flexible materials.
