Polyimide Film

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.
