You English is much much better than my Danish!

The reason why you are having trouble finding Mylar is that is a brand name. Try any of the other brands and you should be able to get it locally at a reasonable price.

You could also look into ER Audio in Australia. They have polyester with a variety of thicknesses well suited to electostatic speakers.

There are lots of great sources out there (even ebay). I use ER audio's mylar, and have a set of DIY esl panels that are over 10 years old now and going strong. I use their 3.5um film on the 63's and it works very well.
