High Performance Films

Sustainable quality

Film used in applications where extreme properties of the material are very important. You may think of extreme temperature resistance, chemical resistance, mechanical properties, etc.

 

Kapton film

Kapton™ polyimide film from DuPont de Nemours is particularly characterized by the extreme temperature resistance, but Kapton™ also has a combination of properties not found in other film. Kapton™ is briefly resistant to temperatures ranging from –260° C to + 400° C. Moreover, it will not burn easily, will not melt, but eventually it will carbonize. Its chemical resistance is also of a very high standard.

 

Fluoro film

Teflon™ related films from DuPont de Nemours not only have a high level of temperature resistance of over 200°C, they are also chemically inert, which makes these films very well resistant against all sorts of chemicals. The product groups Tefzel™, FEP and PFA consist of a range of films with superior anti-stick characteristics, combined with low frictional and excellent optional properties, very good electrical characteristics and suited for applications outdoors.

 

ULTEM™ polyetherimide film

SABIC Innovative Plastics is the producer of ULTEM™ polyetherimide.

This plastic has a higher temperature resistance than polycarbonate and complies with UL demands regarding fire-resistance. The film has a gold/yellow colour and is available in thickness measures from 25µ. The film is processed in electrical isolation applications and in places where temperatures of about 200° and/or fires-resistant characteristics play a part.

 

VALOX™ pbt film

SABIC Innovative Plastics is the producer of VALOX™, a thermoplastic polyester. Owing to the UL94 VTM-0 classification, from a thickness of 125µ VALOX™ is pre-eminently suited for a variety of electrical isolation applications. The film has a white colour and can be supplied in thicknesses of 75µ to 750µ.
