Insulectro stocks and distributes a variety of best-in-class substrates and films for your application.
About substrates & films
Let’s make it clear. It starts with a quality substrate. Pick from a variety of substrates and films to fine-tune your construction.
Polyester's balance of film properties, produced through biaxial orientation, provides exceptional versatility when compared to other thermo-engineered plastic films. These films offer superior optical, physical, mechanical, thermal, and chemical properties. Pick from top flight manufacturers Coveme, Kodak, and DuPont.
DuPont™ Tedlar® PVF films provide superior surface protection for a variety of materials and industries. Whether it’s protecting people from the elements or surfaces from scuffs and stains, DuPont™ Tedlar® PVF protective film provides durable, long-lasting protection from the inside out. From buildings and transportation to aerospace and graphics, Tedlar® delivers enduring value for you and your customers.
Insulectro Clarity™ brand and Lexan™ polycarbonates are mainly used for electronic applications that capitalize on its collective safety features. Being a good electrical insulator and having heat-resistant and flame-retardant properties, it is used in various products associated with electrical and telecommunications hardware.
DuPont™ Kapton® is lightweight, flexible polyimide film that has excellent heat and chemical resistant properties. Polyimide films are used in applications where reliable, durable performance is required, often at elevated temperatures.
Chemours Teflon™ FEP and TCI FEP/PG are transparent, thermoplastic films or sheets that can be heat sealed, thermoformed, laminated, welded, or metalized. With its ideal balance of chemical compatibility, electrical reliability, wide thermal range, mechanical toughness, and long term weather ability there are numerous uses where FEP becomes a perfect solution.
Saint-Gobain Skived PTFE films provide a conformable release surface. Skived PTFE films have high temperature resistance and are virtually unaffected by all chemicals and exhibit a remarkably low coefficient of friction and non-stick properties. At elevated temperatures, PTFE film still retains excellent tensile strength.
Chemours Teflon™ PFA film can offer continuous service temperatures up to 260°C. PFA provides superior creep resistance at high temperatures, excellent low-temperature toughness, and exceptional flame resistance. With these superior attributes as well as enhanced flex life.
FLEXcon SWITCHmark® products that carry a sticky substrate until it is ready for its next step. Sometimes called a 'carrier' or a 'backing' paper/film (pressure sensitive adhesive) , release liners hold onto or carry the sticky substrate, until whatever it is carrying is ready to be released.
DuPont™ GreenTape™ is a low temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC) system line. It provides designers with a technology option that bridges the gap between high temperature co-fired ceramic (HTCC) and standard thick film technologies. It combines the benefits of each to provide a high density, high reliability, high performance low-cost interconnect package.
Stretchable DuPont™ Intexar™ films are bilayer thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) materials. Intexar™ films TE-11C and TE-21C have high recovery and melt adhesive layers optimized for high stretch smart clothing applications like fitness and health monitoring.
Saint-Gobain Chemfoil® PTFE is reinforced with glass fibers, the percentage varying between 5 and 40%. With 5 to 40% added glass fiber PTFE improves the wear properties and, to a minor degree, also the deformation strength under load while leaving substantially unchanged the electrical and chemical characteristics.
