Details about Kapton Polymide film Tape
Excellent electrical isolation and temperature stability ability. Temperature range up to 500 Degrees Fahrenheit. Kapton is a polyimide film developed by DuPont in the late 1960s that remains stable across a wide range of temperatures, from −269 to +400 °C. Kapton is used in, among other things, flexible printed circuits and space blankets, which are used on spacecraft, satellites, and various space instruments.
Unique properties of Kapton Polymide film Tape
- UL 510 Flame Retardant.
- High dielectric strength.
- Silicon adhesive protection leaves no residue.
Kapton tape (generally known as polyamide tape) is a cool tool in these cases and better that regular black electrical tape for most applications
- It is heat resistance. You can put a soldering iron on Kapton tape and it will not melt.
- It does not stretch.
- It is thin.
Applications in a range of industries including,
- consumer electronics, solar photovoltaic and wind energy, aerospace, automotive and industrial applications.
- Automotive Sensor and Manifolds
- Insulating Circuit Boards
- Fiber Optics Cable
- High temperature Powder Coating
- Semiconductor Manufacturing
- Wave soldering during circuit board assembly
Some of Kapton tape's primary use cases are:
- Electronics for Masking Circuit Boards in wave soldering(and in gold leaf masking)
- Electrical for coil insulation, Splicing wires
- capacitor and transformer wrapping/insulation
- Magnetic wire insulation.
- As very high temperature mask during powder coating applications.
- Kapton and ABS adhere to each other very well, so is often used as a build surface for 3D printers.
