Polyimide Tape

Polyimide tapes also known as Kapton tape, has excellent physical, electrical, and mechanical properties over a wide range of temperatures. Making them an excellent choice for any high temperature and electrical insulation applications. Such as, coil insulation, magnetic wire insulation, automotive and aerospace electronics, high temperature powder coating masking and masking of printed circuit board in wave soldering process.

• Good Chemical Resistance
• High Electrical Resistance
• High-Temperature Resistance

Details

 

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.

 

Max temp

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.

 

Shelf life

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%.
