Electronics: component retention and protection
Because it has a very high dielectric insulation and is very thin, this polyamide film is a versatile adhesive suitable for many electronic applications.
In the form of pads sold in rolls, this material can be used to hold and secure diodes, thermistors, wires and all kinds of components.
Polyimide pads can also be used for temporary protection of circuits, during soldering or simply to prevent dust from settling on connections.
Electronics: wave soldering
Polyamide is an electrically insulating material that is suitable for many electronic applications. The material is temperature resistant and can withstand molten tin. Once cut to the shape of the circuit, it is suitable for masking printed circuits during wave soldering operations.
Polyimide films are commonly used in 3D printing to reduce warping. Once applied to the printer plate, the polyamide film ensures a high adhesion of the first layer. As it is resistant to high temperatures, it can be used to print any plastic material.
Polyimide films for 3D printing are usually supplied in rolls, which may not be practical to apply. Cutting to size allows the film to be cut to the standard dimensions of FDM printer trays, making it easy to use.
Paint masking and electrophoresis
Polyamide is an ideal material for high temperature masking and surface protection. If cut to fit the shapes to be protected, it can be used for epoxy powder coating as well as for electrophoresis.
Silicone-coated polyamide films are commonly used in power electronics, for the insulation of electrical coils as well as in motors or capacitors.
Labelling in aggressive environments
Under certain conditions, polyamide films can also be printed on, allowing labels to be designed for harsh environments by means of die cutting.
This type of label is ideal for the identification of printed circuits in electronics. It can also be used to identify mechanical parts that are exposed to heat, for example in the automotive industry.
