PET - Polyester Tape

PET - Polyester Tape

The Star Material Polyester Tape (also typically called PET or Mylar tape), is a transparent film, which has good tensile strength and good heat resistance attributes. The melting point is at around 255°C. It can be widely used in power cable, communication cable, coaxial cable, magnetic wires and other special cables.

We can provide different colors of polyester tapes.
