to other polymeric films at a standard thickness of 1mil, PET film has a good
balance of properties, which allows larger operating windows for temperature
and tension controls.
Comparative data reflected in this chart represent typical film properties,
not specifications. Contact AMPEF member companies for product specifications.
Specific Gravity PET film is denser than other polymeric films, but can
be used in thinner gauges.
Elongation PET film is comparable to other polymeric films.
Melt Point PET film withstands high processing temperatures.
Tensile Strength PET film is excellent for high-tension conversion processes
and durable packages.
Tear Strength PET film packages and constructions are highly durable.
Oxygen Permeability PET film offers an excellent oxygen barrier compared
to other polymeric films.
Water Vapor T R PET film offers a suitable water barrier compared to other
polymeric films and can easily be metallized for applications demanding higher
water barrier performance.
Water Absorption Water absorption is not an issue for the processing or
converting of PET film.
Insulation Breakdown/Dielectric Constant PET film is excellent for wire
and cable insulation, and electrical assembly.
Service Temperature Range PET has the highest service, and is fully to -70C°
