Kapton tape is a polyimide film first developed by DuPont in the 1960’s. It remains stable at an extremely wide range of temperatures from -269˚C to 260˚C and has been an industry standard due to its excellent electrical, thermal, chemical and mechanical properties. This enables the film to withstand extreme temperatures, vibration and other demanding environments.
Due to Kapton tape’s large range of temperature stability and electrical isolation ability, it is used during the manufacturing and final assembly of electronic components. It acts as a protective layer which isolates and prevents electrostatic discharge of sensitive components, also protecting and restraining components during high temp applications and reflow soldering procedures.
ABS and Kapton adhere extremely well to one another, making kapton tape a perfect 3D printing bed surface layer. It is usually applied to a glass or aluminium bed surface, where extruded ABS filament adheres to the surface.
