Aclar film 33C embedding film, 203x254mm, 7.8 Mil (EMS)

ACLAR® is a thermoplastic film that is clear, biochemically inert, and sterilisable by heat or radiation. Cells readily adhere to the film, which makes it useful in fixation, dehydration and embedding procedures. ACLAR® is widely used in pharmaceutical, medical and electronics applications. It separates readily from resins, and can be easily cut with standard scissors, blades and punches.  Disc punches are available, see (EMS77850 series)ACLAR® 33C embedding film is now available in 7.8 mil (199µm) thickness and it is offered in a 203x254mm sheet form with package quantities of 10 or 25.ACLAR® 33C Physical Data Sheet(These are only typical values and are not to be interpreted as product specifications):
