Polyurethane Film Supplier? Answered

I am wondering if anyone knows a polyurethane film supplier (the smallest micron possible) that sells to people who only need small amounts, the current suppliers I have found only take in big orders.

EDIT:
Location - Melbourne, Australia
Application - Balloon Material
Size of order - 10 rolls of at least 1m by 15m
Budget - Maybe around $400 AUD, but I am flexible

trouble is We have no idea of your application

No idea where you are

No idea what size order you need

No idea of what budget your on.

Life is never easy.

You might get what you want if you ask for a sample large enough to test in your project. 1 m x 150m may well amount to a sample for a big supplier - Or ask if their are any second grade materials to be had.

If you take personally to the sales dept you will often get a better result. I still - even though retired - claim to be a Teacher (true just not teaching) This often gets me all sorts of things.

You don't say where you are in the world in your profile to make a proper suggestion.

What about a paint-on polyurethane rubber ?

It doesn't have the low density necessary as a balloon material

Saren (cling film) wrap is about as thin as you can get.

Saran is polyethylene, not poly U though .

Indeed, I should point out that this is for an application that focuses on gas retention, and polyurethane is a key material for that.
