UL Certification for LINQTAPE Polyimide Tapes

Customers often ask us if our poly­imide kap­ton tapes (among oth­ers) are UL cer­ti­fied. Of par­tic­u­lar inter­est to cus­tomers is whether CAPLINQ’s line of LINQTAPE poly­imide tapes have the UL-94 V0 clas­si­fi­ca­tion. Because of the high tem­per­a­ture appli­ca­tion of these poly­imide tapes, the request is not sur­pris­ing.

What cus­tomers do not always real­ize though is that UL clas­si­fi­ca­tion must be test­ed for every unique film back­ing, thick­ness and adhe­sive com­bi­na­tion, and the cost for any sin­gle com­bi­na­tion is approx. $1000 + cost of mate­r­i­al + deliv­ery charges. It is dif­fi­cult to jus­ti­fy the expense for the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for each prod­uct with­out a sig­nif­i­cant cus­tomer request.

CAPLINQ does, how­ev­er, work with an inde­pen­dent test­ing facil­i­ty who can car­ry out this the UL Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, but then CAPLINQ nor­mal­ly requests either a com­mit­ment for a cer­tain order quan­ti­ty (ie. 100 rolls), or that the cus­tomer pay for the test­ing. In order to share the bur­den of test­ing, we offer to pay for all the mate­r­i­al, admin­is­tra­tion and ship­ping charges if the cus­tomer pays $1000 toward the test­ing.
