Over 30 years ago, DU PONT developed a novel kind of film from polyvinyl fluoride: the TEDLAR® PVF film. With its exceptional mechanical, electrical and chemical properties, coupled with outstanding resistance to weathering, TEDLAR® is the perfect protective and/or release material.
TEDLAR® is a registered trademark of the DuPont company. KREMPEL is an authorised distributor for TEDLAR® within Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and Eastern Europe.

KAPTON® polyimide film is a registered trade mark of Du Pont Company. KREMPEL is the authorised distributor for KAPTON® for Germany and Austria.
KAPTON® polyimide film, manufactured by Du Pont, exhibits many desirable characteristics otherwise not found in this unique constellation with other polymer film materials.
- KAPTON® can be used briefly under temperature conditions ranging from -269 °C to +400 °C. Long-term heat resistance up to +230 °C. *1)
- KAPTON® is flame retardant, self-extinguishing and begins to char only at 800 °C.
- KAPTON® has no melting point.
- KAPTON® is chemically inert to a high degree, and has no known organic solvent.
- KAPTON® is highly resistant to nuclear radiation.
- KAPTON® is the only known film material which is stable with respect to corona discharge (for type CR).
*1) KAPTON® has already proved to give successful performance in applications involving ambient temperatures ranging from -269 °C to +400 °C, but complete data on its behaviour under such extreme conditions is not yet available.
The ability to retain its excellent chemical, mechanical and electrical properties over a wide temperature range makes KAPTON® suitable for many constructional and engineering applications. KAPTON® polyimide film is especially suitable for applications in which high operating temperatures are encountered, where other plastic film materials fail.
