America's Choice for Custom Converted Materials
Polyimide film (aka Kapton®) provides outstanding hardness and is often used as an excellent electrical insulator. It possesses a superior balance of chemical, physical and electrical properties over a wide temperature range. This easily recognized amber colored film is often used in electrical shielding and insulating applications. Polyimide does not melt.
The most outstanding properties are:
· Extreme temperature performance capabilities
· Highly conformable
· Excellent hardness
Polyimide can be used in a temperature range from –450°F to +680°F.
