Polyimide tapes are manufactured by coating the polyimide film with a desired adhesive system. With the film thickness ranging from 0.5 mil to 10 mils, adhesive thickness of 0.5 mil to 2 mils. CGS has the capabilities to coat both silicone and acrylic adhesives that removes cleanly, leaving no residue in high temperature applications. We have also developed specialty adhesive systems such as:
- low outgassing
- ultra thin
- high temperature
- high tack
Polyimide tape is naturally amber color, but through our process, the tape can also be supplied in other colors, such as green, red, or clear. Which makes it easier for color coding.
Standard polyimide film tape with silicone adhesive can be used in application up to 260°C/500°F. For even higher temperature resistance, our HT version uses a special grade of silicone adhesive, that allows the tape to go 260°C/572°F.
Standard shelf life for polyimide with pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) is 2 years from date of manufacture, when stored in room conditions with temperature of 75 degrees F and relative humidity of 50%.
