  • 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 and for wave solder masking 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.

    Characteristics of polyimide films:

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