Pros:
Cheap!!! Adhesive is very good! Elasticity is acceptable! Does not tear easily! This tape is not fake, is just like the original. It handles 300ºC without problems. I have used it to fix a temperature sensor to a heater. Very useful to electrically insulating between components and the heatsinks. This tape can be used in masking of circuit boards during resoldering, transformer and capacitor insulation, powder coating and high temperature applications and other electronic manufacturing processes. Is a wider tape, good for large areas.
Cons:
Heat isolation is less than expected. I still feel a bit warm from the heat generated by my processor where I stick this tape on them. Surface must be very clean before this tape sticks. it is a bit thinner than I expected
Other:
Should have been better in terms of heat isolation Electricity isolation is on par with other much more expensive products.
Bottomline:
Very good item because it's very cheap. Buy them if your usage is not critical!!! Polyimide (Kapton is a DuPont brand name) is not damaged by quite high temperatures, but it is not intended as a thermal insulator. In fact, many termally-conductive sheet materials used for mounting power semiconductors are made with a thin polyimide core coated on both sides with silicone or other material.
