Acetate foil

    **** Moderator's comments:   The poster refers to an "Acetone foil",
    but I have changed this heading to the much more probably "acetate"
    throughout. If there is indeed so unlikely a creature as acetone
    foil, I please correct me :-)

I have a letter from the Menangfax Co. in Kuala Lumpur looking for
assistance in finding an Acetate foil.  The following is their

    This Acetate foil acts as a flue which melts under heat (360 F) and
    pressure.  It is used to laminate documents and sandwich a document
    under repair between 2LX tissue.

The sample attached to the letter looks like a piece of clear 1 mil soft
polyester.  They are looking for a source to purchase this material.  We
don't recognize the sample but would refer them to anyone that would
have such a product.  Can anyone recommend a source?
