Abstract : The overall objective of this program was to identify And evaluate advanced aromatic/heterocyclic film forming polymers having improved electrical and thermal properties over Kapton R for wire insulation applications in future spacecraft. Five polymeric candidates were screened for high (300 deg C) and low temperature (-269 deg C) behavior, initial electrical properties and oxidative/solvent resistance versus KaptonR film as the control material for R which a replacement was sought. It was experimentally determined that EYMYD L-30N, IP- 200 PPQ and UPILE XR S films possessed a very promising initial combination of properties versus Kapton R indicative of high promise for 300 deg C insulation service.
