Polyester Film Is Our Business

Filmquest offers the widest range of polyester films available. Film can be supplied to meet industry specifications including corona and chemical treatments, anti-static, heat sealable, PvDC, colored, anti-fog, hazy, ultra-clear, shrinkable, twistable, metallized, and other market and performance-driven properties.

Filmquest is the converting industry's premier resource for research and development, technical information, and lab and production samples. The market information we acquire is both local and global, so our customers reap the benefits of our in-depth industry expertise.

Why Choose Filmquest?

  • Selection - We offer a complete range of polyester film grades and gauges, as well as a full line of conversion services and treatments. Unlike the big guys, we can supply just the quantity you need, from 1-roll orders all the way up to hundreds of thousands of pounds. Because we specialize in polyester film, we can do custom conversions that the others just can't.
  • Price - Filmquest knows the market. We monitor imports of films coming into the country. We track capacity coming online and lines being shut down. And we use all of this information to buy right. That allows us to pass the savings on to you. Regardless of the quantity of film you need, we supply it at the lowest possible global price to save you money.
  • Service - We ask a lot of questions up front. We are very knowledgeable about every facet of the polyester film business and make absolutely sure that what we sell every customer is perfect for their specific application. We don't want to make a single sale—we want to develop a relationship and make you a customer for life.
  • Quality - Questar™ Polyester Film is ISO Compliant and FDA Approved. Certificates of Analysis are available for customer internal and external compliance. Our high-tech converting equipment and trained operators virtually eliminate problems such as wrinkles, bad edges, or roll profiles that can cause gauge bands. And, we constantly upgrade our equipment to keep pace with your need for ever-increasing efficiency.
