Metallic Mylar is thinly slit and braided with clear PET fibers. It is an innovative solution for adding a mirror finish to any sleevable product. It is readily used in cosmetic applications with dramatic results, such as in show car engine compartments, computer cases(mods), and also in applications where maximum light is crucial.(ie greenhouses). It is so shiny, you'll blind your competition!

Splice Free Spooling:
Some splices are normal during the braiding process. Usually, not more than one or two splices will be on any given spool. Ordering splice-free spools guarantees the maximum continuous yield on your spools. This option is suggested when ordering large lengths of sleeving or for important and precise projects. This treatment is most applicable in lengths that exceed 100 feet. In general, shorter lengths will be splice free as they come off the spools.
