Kapton® film (developed by Dupont™) is a polyimide film that has exceptional electrical, mechanical, physical and chemical properties. The thermal class of Kapton, in use, is Class C, which corresponds to a temperature index above 240°C.
Thanks to these extraordinary characteristics, Kapton® is a flexible insulator that remains stable in the face of extreme temperatures, allowing it to be used between -269 degrees and + 400 degrees. Kapton® film, or polyimide film, can be used in various industrial applications requiring important electrical, mechanical or thermal properties.
For applications subject to high heat and vibration, Kapton® is used extensively for its ability to maintain its unique combination of properties under the most difficult conditions.
- Self-extinguishing (UL94 V-0)
- No melting temperature, it carbonizes at over 800°C and gives off very little smoke
- No known organic solvent
- Tg above 350°C
- Usable from – 269°C to 400°C
- Very good dielectric strength (300KV/mm on a 25µm film base)
- Very good resistance to radiation
