Kapton® Polyimide films

Kapton® FCRC

Kapton® FCRC combines corona resistant polyimide film with a heat fusible FEP fluoropolymer film

Kapton® FCRC corona resistance provides improved service life and operational efficiencies vs conventional insulation materials.

Kapton® 150FCRC019 is a composite film consisting of Kapton® 100CRC corona resistant polyimide film and a heat fusible FEP fluoropolymer film. In addition to the corona resistant properties, Kapton® FCRC offers excellent, physical, electrical, thermal, and chemical resistant characteristics expected with Kapton® polyimide films.

Kapton® 150FCRC019 has been developed for use as a magnet wire insulation in rail traction, industrial motors and generators where there is a need for enhanced insulation life under partial discharge environments. Kapton® FCRC may also be used in other electrically insulating applications where partial discharge may occur.

Characteristics:
• Corona resistant film
• Heat fusible adhesive
• High dielectric strength
• Reduced thickness versus mica laminates

Applications:
• Magnet wire
• Traction motors: rail, auto, mining
• Industrial motor insulation
• Wind, hydro generators
• ESP motors
• High temperature
• High reliability
• Aerospace and specialty wires
