Polyimide enamels (commonly known as Kapton®) are solutions of polyamic acids formed by reacting aromatic diamines with aromatic dianhydrides. Sometimes aromatic hydrocarbon or xylene solvent is added as a diluent.
Polyimide Enamels have been recognized as having the finest thermal stability, radiation resistance, solvent resistance, cryogenic resistance, and electrical properties of any enamel available.
Key Characteristics of Polyimide:
- Excellent electrical properties
- Good thermal properties
