Abstract:

The overall objective of this program was to identify And evaluate advanced aromaticheterocyclic 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 oxidativesolvent 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.
