What is Kapton Tape?

Kapton tape is a type of polyimide film tape that is known for its high heat resistance and electrical insulation properties. It was first developed by DuPont in the 1960s and has since been used in a wide range of industries, including aerospace, electronics, and automotive.

Kapton tape is typically brown or amber in color and has a silicone adhesive on one side, which allows it to adhere to a variety of surfaces. It is highly resistant to high temperatures, chemicals, and radiation, making it an ideal choice for applications where durability and reliability are critical.

Some common uses for Kapton tape include masking during soldering, insulating wires and cables, and as a heat shield for electronic components. It is also used in the aerospace industry to protect spacecraft and satellites from the extreme temperatures encountered during launch and in space.
