  • About polyimide film

    Polyimide film insulating tapes, including Kapton tape, are specially designed for high temperature applications requiring a thin, puncture resistant backing. They are ideal for high temperature electrical applications in which a tough, thin insulating material is required for wrapping coils, transformers, capacitors and wire harnesses. They are also used as a cover layer for many types of flexible printed circuit boards and as a wave solder masking tape in printed circuit board assembly.

    Utilising our range of converting capabilities we can offer polyimide film insulating tapes in custom width and length rolls or in custom shapes and final presentations.

    Polyimide film tape characteristics:

    • Available with a solvent resistant acrylic or high temperature silicone adhesive
    • Available in a range of thicknesses
    • Flame retardant
    • Solvent resistant
    • Physical and electrical properties remain stable in high temperatures
