Polyimide Kaptone Tapes are used extensively in printed circuit board production. Polyimide tapes are transparent, and that allows observation of the circuit boards during their processing. Polyimide film tapes are high temperature resistant, and their adhesive system leaves minimal residue when removed after the manufacturing process.
Polyimide tape is also used in the auto industry for wrapping switches, diaphragms, sensors and coils in seat heaters. The aerospace industry uses Polyimide tape primarily for insulation of aircraft and spacecraft wings. Kaptone tape’s unique ability to maintain its physical, mechanical and electrical properties and its wide temperature range makes it appealing to a wide range of industries applications.
