Flame Retardant Polycarbonate Plastic as Electrical Insulation Film

Polycarbonate plastic films offered by SABIC can be great electrical insulators due to their high dielectric strength and heat resistance. To ensure safety and functionality in electrical insulation applications, trust LEXAN™ FR films to deliver.

What plastic is used for electrical insulation?

LEXAN™ FR films are flame-resistant polycarbonate films that offer ideal thermal and electrical insulation properties while complying with many environmental standards. Compatible with various adhesives, these films offer optimal heat and dielectric insulation strength, making them the practical choice for your insulation film needs.

Polycarbonate for PCB Insulation

One specific product that optimizes LEXAN™ FR films insulation properties is Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs). PCBs provide connection and functionality to many of today's electronic devices. Printed circuit boards are created using a variety of plastic film substrates, most notable is polycarbonate films. Due to their thermal and electrical insulation properties, LEXAN™ FR films are used as a trusted PCB insulation material.

Some common product selections used for electrical insulation are:

  • LEXAN™ FR65 Film: a clear, thin-gauge velvet/matte flame-retardant polycarbonate film
  • LEXAN™ FR700 Film: a black, fine matte/velvet flame-retardant polycarbonate film
  • Valox™ FR1 Film: a white flame retardant thermoplastic polybutylene, terephthalate film.
  • Ultem™ 1000B: a high-performance thermoplastic polyetherimide material offering flame resistance, low moisture absorption, and excellent dielectric properties.
