  1 Design guidance for a heater using Kapton® 200RS100 only, may not provide the optimal output  
  2 Static Temperature is only reference for power densities less than 2.5 W/cm2  
  3 If necessary, use a heat sink and thermal interface to maintain film temperature below 240°C    
  4 A heat sink is recommendedfor power densities greater than 1W/cm2  
  5 A heat sink and thermal interface is recommended for power densities above 3W/cm2
