Kapton® RS

DuPont™ Kapton® RS is an electrically conductive polyimide film developed for applications in which a precisely controlled surface resistivity is needed. The resistive property is retained througout the film, so it cannot be cracked, rubbed off or easily damaged, as is often the case with surface coatings or metallizations.
