être refendus en bandes [fines et/ou] étroites
Explanation:
These Radiant Light Films are gorgeous! :-) Anyway, typically materials are slit into "bandes refendues" with a "refendeuse ou refendeur" and that holds true whether it is a nonwoven like film, or a metals such as steel, or even paper (as an aside, there is different machine in the paper industry that cuts the paper into sheets).

So the question now is what do they mean by a sheer slit. Do they mean a narrow cut or a thin cut? To me, sheer means thin; so, that would be "bandes fines." However, after looking at the information at the 3M site on how this film can be cut into thread, I think that it could be "bandes étroites." In addition, there is a reference to the smallest size the film can be slit, and that means width, not thickness.

bandes transparentes
******************

It occurred to me, after a good night's sleep :-), that, in this case, sheer could mean transparent since the film is wonderfully transparent. Or, like sheer hosiery, it could be both transparent and thin. Your choice. One of the uses of this film is to cut it for merchandise packaging where is can be placed over a clear opening or over another color on the package so that when one looks at it from different angles, it turns different colors, and whatever product or color underneath the film can still be seen. This is an unusual enough statement that I don't think that we're going to find the same statement in the same context in French.

Alternant des bandes dépolies de 45 mm et des **bandes transparentes** de 10 mm, ce film permet d’occulter partiellement un vitrage, de manière à filtrer le regard sans l’interdire totalement.

If Tony is right and it should be shear, not sheer, then this is what you are looking for.

The third type of mechanical web separation is Shear Slitting.
In shear slitting there are top and bottom knives. The two knives work in conjunction to form a scissor cutting action that separates the web.

Types of materials slit by this: fine paper, foils, films.
Shear slitting can be further broken down into its two basic types, Tangent Slitting and Wrap Slitting.

  -> Thank you! :-)

agree  Tony M: Yes, but I am still convinced that it is a typo for 'shear' (= a particular method of slitting); have you found any refs. anywhere using 'sheer slit'?
1 hr
  -> Thanks Tony! This statement is put out by 3M and repeated throught the Internet. The material is sheer. I think advertising ;-) got a hold of the phrase since it is in a brochure. Perhaps they misunderstood the tech guys? :-)
