ENCLOSURES & SLEEVES
Side Lock Film Sleeves
Film sleeves are available in either a clear 3 mil. polypropylene or polyester (Melinex 516 - Dupont’s replacement for Mylar D). Each are archivally safe; the polyester is super-clear and more chemically inert, while polypropylene is more economical. A self-locking side fold holds film in place. Sleeves 'unlock' to open completely for safer film removal without sliding image inside the sleeve.
Polyester Sleeves are crystal clear and more rigid than polypropylene, making viewing and handling your film much easier while providing a high level of protection. Polypropylene Sleeves are just as safe but they lack the optical clarity and are less rigid.
