Kapton® makes more choices in safety and convenience possible in the automotive market, such as in switches and diaphragms, and in seat heaters and sensors.
Although thin and lightweight, Kapton® can withstand flexing without developing cracks or tears. Kapton® enables diaphragms and other parts that must move constantly under high pressure to remain flexible and functional, while performing for millions of cycles.
The enhanced thermal conductivity and heat resistance of Kapton® can be critical in automotive parts where both properties play a role in performance, such as temperature sensors for instrumentation.
