Polyester (PET) is a popular laminate choice with exceptional properties that makes it ideal for most applications. Premium film features excellent scuff and scratch resistance, durability, and folding characteristics. It also has high tensile, tear, and impact strength that is retained even after lamination. These films do not contain plasticizers or become brittle with age. Consider Polyester for projects requiring toughness, durability, and heat resistance.

Sydney Stone carries (Polyster) PET Laminating Film manufactured by D&K. We carry many different kinds of laminating products, but PET generally is more suitable due to it's versatile nature. PET is a thermoplastic film that works perfectly when you are laminating two-sides, making it popular for most common applications. We carry PET in various sizes and thicknesses that range from 1.5 Mil to 10 Mil.
PET doesn't break easily, which is why it is considered a highly stable, highly durable laminate with a tough & rigid surface. Given it's strong nature, it doesn't burst easily like a burstable film- so to finish the laminate edges, you would need to cut it using a cutter.7
The most common finish for PET laminate is Gloss & Matte. It's highly versatile nature, durability, and various options in thicknesses and finish allows it to be used in a huge range of applications such as magazines, books, menus, loyalty cards, ID Cards and more.
