LEXAN™ film - electrical films

LEXAN electrical films offer consistent properties for die-cut insulators and printability. It provides thermal insulation properties and mechanical strength. LEXAN electrical films can be easily thermoformed into complex, three-dimensional parts or cold-formed. A combination of low moisture absorption, high-temperature resistance, and resistance to a broad range of organic solvents and chemical detergents makes these films a popular choice for die-cut insulators.

Transparent or opaque LEXAN electrical films are flame retardant polycarbonate materials that offer consistent properties for insulation and printability. The range also includes environmentally responsible films that enable electrical and electronics OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) to go beyond current environmental directives. Electrical films are available in various surface textures and offer reliable ease of fabrication with their formability and dimensional stability at high temperatures.

Key benefits of electrical films: 

  • Excellent thermal and electrical insulation properties
  • High mechanical strength
  • Flame resistance
  • Compliance with many environmental standards
  • Easy, cost-effective fabrication
  • Compatibility with adhesives
  • Increased chemical and hydrolytic resistance
