DuPont™ Kapton® WR/FWR Polyimide Film
Categories: Polymer; Film; Thermoset; Polyimide, TS; Polyimide, Thermoset Film

Material Notes: Kapton® Type WR was developed to combat the effect of water on insulation systems and for uses where hydrolytic stability is important. Type FWR is laminated with Teflon® FEP for use as heat-sealable magnet wire insulation.

General Kapton® information: Kapton® is synthesized by polymerizing an aromatic dianhydride with an aromatic diamine. It has excellent chemical resistance; there are no known organic solvents for the film. It does not melt. It can be used at both high and low temperature extremes. Kapton® polyimide films can be used in a variety of electrical and electronic uses: wire and cable tapes, formed coil insulation, substrates for printed circuit boards, motor slot liners, magnet wire insulation, transformer and capacitor insulation, magnetic and pressure-sensitive tapes, and tubing.

Data provided by DuPont High Performance Films.

No detailed property information is available about this grade. Other Kapton® grades in MatWeb such as Types HN and VN have more details.

DuPont and Dow have completed their merger. This product line remained with DuPont.
