Outstanding Thermal Performance and Excellent Yield During Graphite Sheet Production
Kapton® GS film has been specifically designed and manufactured to expand the processing window and improve yields during artificial graphite sheet production.
This particular film has high tensile strength and uniform properties that permit controlled shrinkage during the carbonization process. The film’s molecular structure permits uniform graphite formation during the graphitization process.
The properties of Kapton® GS films enable excellent "in plane" thermal conductivity when converted into artificial graphite sheet.
Artificial Graphite Sheets
- Used as a thermal dissipative “in plane” material in a variety of commercial & industrial applications to consumer electronics such as cell phones and tablet computers
- Enables excellent downstream process latitude for lamination of coverfilms, adhesive application, and punching or forming of the graphite sheets to the desired shape.
