Kapton® HN general-purpose polyimide film
Kapton® HN is the recommended choice for applications that require an all-polyimide film with an excellent balance of properties over a wide range of temperatures.
Kapton® HN has been used successfully in applications at temperatures as low as -269°C (-452°F) and as high as 400°C (752°F). Kapton® HN film can be laminated, metallized, punched, formed or adhesive coated.
