Default no use

Hi,

Films that are used as color-filters are too thick to be used in ESLs.
And You dont know the mechanical properties either, which will probabely be inferior to pure Mylar.
When You build ESLs with higher mechanical tension its of greatest importance to use 1st class films, that have the highest tensile strength. This is original Mylar (DuPont) Type C and S and Hostaphan (Mitsubishi/Hoechst) RE. Use 6m for fullrange and even thinner material for hybrids to get best results.

The "real" application of thin polyester film (such as 5-6um thick) is for capacitors. They metalize it, slit it, roll it, and attach leads.

When an aluminum or other oxide is added along with a water activated, pressure sensitive adhesive it becomes window tinting film.

Pleas be aware of the fact that most amateur coatings do not meet any decent production standards. Even worse, their chemical and physical properties are usually inferior and are not worth the money.
If the so-called producer is not capable and/or refusing to give you enough information about his 'product', forget it.

Besides professional EC-coating, I've got some 100 cm width original, custom made Mylar which enables you to get two panels at once (large width of the Mylar). Besides saving money, you can get equal mechanical tensions as well.

You can contact me: mj-dijkstra@zonnet.nl
