Default Who sells mylar for ESL 57 ?

I am in the process of re-building my ESL 57.
Who sells mylar (and coating, ...) ?
I found Gary Jacobson from quadesl.org
Is the site still active ? Has someone ordered something from there recently ?

Then there is ER audio apparently.
Other suggestions ?
Thank you.

This site seems rather serious but they do not provide
any kind of technical info on what they sell

You want mylar film they sell genuine Dupont mylar film quote from their site:

Diaphragm film - Minimum Quantity 10 Metres


3.5 micron Genuine Dupont Mylar C 700 mm wide uncoated. Best all round performance. Price per metre AUD $5.8

6.0 Micron Hostaphan Tensilised uncoated film, great compromise between performance and durability,
800mm wide. Price per metre. AUD $4.70


12 micron x 800 wide uncoated Melinex. Tough and durable AUD $3.00 per metre


12 micron x 730 wide Aluminised Low S/R, works best on tweeters AUD $3.30per metre


What more technical info do you need?
If you want more info send Rob mackinlay an email enquiry. He usually replies by return taking time zones into account.

I can highly recommend his clear conductive coating. The best I've used on any ESL build or repair.

Indeed I did not see this part initially.
I suppose they provide 6um Hostaphan for treble and 12um Melinex for bass.
What is lacking is for example if they provide enough coating for coating
both sides. I know some people think it's worthless. As far as I am
concerned, I just want to re-build it as it was done in factory.
This is why I am more interested currently by what is proposed by quadesl.org. If still available...
