Which polymer is known as mylar?
The polymer is made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET), which has undergone a biaxial orientation process. So, it is also known by its generic name, BoPET, which stands for biaxially-oriented polyethylene terephthalate. BoPET is a specific form of polyester film that has been stretched in both the machine (lengthwise) and transverse (widthwise) directions during its manufacturing process. This stretching process enhances the film's physical properties, making it suitable for various applications such as packaging, insulation, and reflective materials.
