Single sided Kapton tapes

Kapton and polyimide tapes

The single sided Kapton tape consists of a Kapton polyimide film with a silicon adhesive. The tape is self wound without a liner. Advantages of the Kapton tape are:

  • wide temperature range use
  • heat resistant
  • good adhesion properties on difficult surfaces
  • low adhesive transfer
  • leaves cleaner surfaces after removal
  • low outgassing under vacuum

If used as temporary tape or transfer tape, only apply minimum pressure. The Kapton tape has low outgassing properties and is an ideal tape for high vacuum aplications. Excellent performance for electrical and thermal insulation with high dielectric strength. Although the use temperature range is specified as -75 to +260°C, Kapton has been successfully used in the temperature range of -196 to +400°C.

Applications are wide ranging for this tape:

  • masking on printed circuit boards during soldering
  • masking for vacuum deposition
  • holding samples or part in high vacuum
  • positioning tape for cryo applications
  • electrical insulation on transformers, coil and electro motors.

Double sided polyimide heat resistant tapes

Kapton and polyimide tapes

The double sided polyimide tape consists of a polyimide film with silicon adhesive on both sides. The tape  is wound between two polyester liners.  The two liners make clean handling of the tape easy: unwind the tape from the first liner and leave on the second liner. Apply tape and remove second liner. Advantages of the polyimide tape are:

  • heat resistant
  • can be used over a wide temperature range
  • excellent adhesion on difficult surfaces
  • minimal adhesive transfer
  • vacuum compatible
  • temporary sample holding / positioning

When used as a temporary tape or transfer tape, avoid pressing down on the tape. Due to its low outgassing properties the double sided polyimide tape is a ideal for high vacuum aplications for sample processing.  Excellent electrical and thermal insulation properties with a high dielectric strength. Although the use temperature range is specified as -75 to +260°C, polyimide tape has been successfully used in the temperature range of -196 to +400°C.

Applications for double side polyimide tape are:

  • holding samples for vacuum deposition
  • holding TEM grid during deposition and processing
  • positioning tape for cryo applications
  • masking in high temperature environments
  • electrical insulation on transformers, coil and electro motors.

→ Available in widths of 5, 10 and 20mm with a length of 20m. Clean 76mm diameter plastic core.
