Why Mylar

There are several benefits to using Mylar as your material for shims. Mylar is a polyethylene terephthalate polyester film that is known for its incredible tensile strength, electrical insulation, and transparency. It can be found in helium-filled balloons, medical devices, magnetic recording media, space blankets, protective plastic coatings, insulators, and more.

Since shims can act as spacers, Mylar shims are perfect for use with dies to create cuts, or to etch intricate patterns onto crafts. Adding a Mylar shim under the die will ensure that there is no error and that the end result is one of perfection. This is only the beginning. There are many unique industrial uses for Mylar shims.
