What Is Mylar?
Mylar is a polyester film with the chemical name of Biaxially-oriented Polyethylene Terephthalate or BoPET. This film is made from stretched PET material and has very high tensile strength and stability. Mylar is used in a variety of applications because of its insulative properties and gas and aroma barrier properties. Mylar was created in the 1950s by DuPont, Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) and Hoechst. "Mylar" was the brand name given to this film and the name is still used today, although other companies now make similar products. Mylar may have been short for metallized polyester, a simple way to explain the appearance and physical properties of this substance.
Why Use Mylar for Storage Bags?
Mylar bags, when used to store food or perishables, provides a much stronger barrier between gasses than other forms of plastic. Mylar can be used as a laminate like aluminum foil to line containers and increase shelf life or as a container itself. When sealed with an Industrial vacuum sealer, Mylar is extremely effective in locking out moisture and oxygen, the two things that often cause food or perishables to spoil.
Mylar bags are superior for food and perishable storage when compared to some forms of plastic for other reasons, as well. Mylar is far more puncture-resistant than most metallized polyester films when it is laminated to another metal foil such as aluminum. Even without a desiccant added to the bag, Mylar will withstand heat, water and air intrusion and breakdown from UVA and UVB radiation. Mylar's reflective surface when laminated offers further protection against light breakdown.
Mylar is also appropriate for electronic storage because the surface acts as an electrical insulator. When you use Mylar as liner for electronic packaging, you can be sure that your delicate electronics will not be damaged by random charges from machinery or other electronics.
