FEP film - Possibly planning a bulk purchase, any takers?

Postby Anvils hammer » Wed Feb 04, 2015 1:32 pm

Hello everyone.

I am potentially looking to design and test a flex vat, and may purchase 1 square meter of FEP film 0.1mm thick, and 1 Square meter of 0.25mm thick.

I have been quoted approx £100 for this quantity by a company listed in another thread in this forum.

I dont need more than half a square meter of each thickness for my purposes, so to reduce the cost, would anyone be interested in purchasing a quantity of either/both thicknessess?

I would charge the same amount I am paying, plus postage and packaging.

Thanks

Joel

i'm too lazy to make the calculation but seems 100 pounds is a lot.
I bought mine here, already received it:

ok, it's not the same thickness, but you really need that thick ?

Hey,

Thanks for that link!

I guess Im a bit more inclined to trust a large company, as I have no idea what material a given film is made from! But for 17$ for three sheets with shipping, thats worth a try for my initial tests!

Now the hard part of building a precision flex vat, Guess I will have a read through the various threads on the subject again.
