Hostaphan® is a family of PET foils by Mitsubishi.
Hostaphan® polyester has very good properties in terms of mechanical stability, dielectric strength, abrasion and heat stability. The foils can be delivered highly transparent or, for example, dyed white or black. They have good barrier properties and are chemically very stable. Hostaphan® foils are available in many specific versions.
Hostaphan® foils are used in the temperature range from -70°C up to 150°C. Since they contain no plasticizers, they don't become brittle or fragile with ageing under normal conditions.
