USES AND APPLICATIONS
Since the birth of manned space flight more than four decades ago, DuPont has been along for the ride with products essential for lighter weight, reduced volume, durability and environmental resistance.
One of the keys to the very sensitive response is the softness and elasticity of Kapton® which enables the mat to follow the determination of the seat almost exactly.
The European rail industry adopted Kapton® FCR to improve the efficiency and durability of AC traction motors on its high speed locomotives, where it significantly outperformed traditional insulation systems.
Kapton® film provides high temperature resistance as well a weight and space savings, very important features in aerospace applications.
