What's the Kapton Enamel?

Kapton enamel is designed for covering enameled wire and various electric heating applications. This insulating film can be laminated, metallized, punched, molded or bonded to coating Kapton is classified as thermoplastic and thermosetting plastics. Kapton polymers are responsible for polyimide thermal stability, good chemical inertness and excellent strength and stiffness. This insulating film has a unique combination of properties and is ideally suited for a variety of applications in many different industries.

The density of the Kapton enamel is 1.42g/cc; it is the obsolete that maintains excellent physical, electrical, and mechanical properties over a wide temperature range, up to 400°C; its insulation stability is 1012 ohms/cm at 220°C, and thermal conductivity is 0.16W/mK. Kapton is based on homophenotetracarboxylic anhydride and diaminodiphenyl ethers. It is produced by a two-step polymerization reaction, after exposure to a high temperature of 250°C curing to get the insulation film.

Advantage - Kapton Enamel

Kapton is a polyimide film commonly used as an insulator in electronic circuits. It can be stable between -269°C and 400°C. Other applications in electronics include cables and insulating films. PI films are now popular as a source of renewable energy production. They are used as substrate materials for amorphous silicon and CIGS solar cells because of their high thermal stability and flexibility, high tensile strength and flexibility. Dupont insulating films provide high efficiency, flexibility and stability for electrical and electronic products at higher temperatures.
