Dura-Bright starts to soften at 75°C/165°F. The film will soften very evenly, which makes polypropylenes like Dura-Bright ideal for thermoforming and bending applications.
Yes it does. Dura-Bright will stretch quite a bit before tearing. It takes a lot to get it to tear!
Dura-Bright™ sheets have good insulation properties, but not as good as those of polyester film products like Duralar™ and Mylar®. DuraBright sheets are not as heat-resistant as polyester films, but they do hold up better in cold temperatures.
No. Polypropylenes like Dura-Bright have a low melting point, so you want to keep this material away from elevated temperatures – like the heat generated by electricity. For electrical applications, we recommend our Hazy DuraLar™ polyester film products. Please contact us today and we can help you with your specific requirements.
Dura-Bright™ Synthetic Paper is NOT biodegradable. The only biodegradable film product we offer is acetate. However, DuraBright is 100% recyclable with other polypropylenes – as well as phthalate- and lead-free.
Dura-Bright Synthetic Paper sheets are not formally considered archival material. Dura-Bright is pH neutral and UV-stable. But because the sheets are thicker and not glass clear, there is no demand for it in archival applications, so the material has not been tested or certified for archival properties.
