Kapton® RS

Kapton® RS is an electrically conductive polyimide film

DuPont™ Kapton® RS is an electrically conductive polyimide film developed for applications in which a precisely controlled surface resistivity is needed.

The resistive property is throughout the bulk of the film, so it cannot be cracked, rubbed off or otherwise easily damaged, as is often the case with surface coatings or metallizations.

Applications requiring high temperature performance would benefit from this all-polyimide conductive film. A typical application for this product is flat heaters. As a heater, this material is more efficient since the entire surface area will conduct heat. It can also be easily cut into various configurations. Due to its polyimide composition, it is resilient to high temperature, thin, and highly flexible.

Applications include:

  • Heaters
  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Consumer Electronics
