    I've been looking around for some time to find suitable mylar to "sandwich" my negs, but can't seem to find anything in the UK; is there a different terminology to look for than "mylar film" and is equivalent ?

    Polyester or PET film. Mylar is a Dupont trademark.

    When you say 1mil do you mean 1mm or the American .001" ?

    Depending on the quantity you want, I could probably find something suitable.

    Light impressions might have it.

    I think the large format neg asleeves that Secol make (eg sold by Silverprint) are the same stuff.
