Kapton

content_middle

Kapton is a polyimide film from DuPont with a strong balance of electrical, chemical, mechanical, physical, and thermal properties.

Unlike other electrical insulators, Kapton has good dielectric strength even at high temperatures. Desirable over a wide temperature range, Kapton film can also withstand low temperatures.

Interstate Specialty Products die cuts Kapton insulation for medical and scientific, electronics, and industrial applications. For over 50 years, our Made in the USA manufacturing company has been die-cutting thermal and electrical insulation materials at our custom fabrication facility in Sutton, Massachusetts.

Kapton insulation does not readily melt or burn, and has the highest UL-94 flammability rating. In addition to strong chemical resistance, this electrical insulation material is suitable for high radiation environments. Kapton tape has a silicone adhesive, and is suitable for electronics, optics, and medical manufacturing.

Interstate Specialty Products can die cut Kapton sheet materials for electrical and electronic applications such as flexible printed circuits, motor slot liners, and magnetic tape. Die-cut components made from this polyimide film are also used for insulating capacitors, formed coils, magnet wires, and transformers.

As an experienced insulation manufacturer, Interstate Specialty Products can also recommend grades of types of Kapton with anti-static or thermally conductive properties. In addition to standard Kapton types such as HN, VN, and FN, we can source polyimides that are corona resistant or suitable for cryogenic use.
 
Interstate Specialty Products can laminate Kapton film with other materials and adhesives, and manufacture Kapton electrical insulation via precision die cutting or digital die-less methods.
