Material Data Sheet
Item: Description: Mylar* Polyester Film Type EL-21 Mylar* polyester film is a flexible, strong and durable film with an unusual balance of properties making it suitable for many industrial applications. The excellent dielectric strength, moisture resistance and physical toughness make Mylar* a very versatile and functional insulating material.

Application:

Type EL-21 films, similar to type MO films, are heavy gauge insulating films designed for general purpose electrical/electronic applications, such as transformers, laminates, bus bars and punched parts.

Typical Properties: Mylar* films offer high dielectric strength, good chemical resistance and exceptional durability in high temperature environments.
