As market leader in boat cloth we have this high quality pattern film, made of HDPE. It is more stable and tear resistant than standard P.E. (polyethylene) moulding film, because there is an insert in the film to reinforce it. As a result, this template film has a negligible elongation, cannot shrink and is transparent enough to see everything underneath, so you can easily draw the entire pattern. The adhesion for tape is also fine.
