Enlisting Kapton Film in the Military

Protecting Those Who Protect Us

To say that military conditions can be harsh is an understatement. Lives, governments, and countries are at stake when conflicts rage. When brave soldiers are at work doing the job of protecting our freedoms, they shouldn’t have to give a second thought to the details of how their equipment and transportation protect them. Kapton® film helps keep them safe.


The dependability of Kapton® film is widely known—and used—across many industries. Its thin, lightweight, excellent tensile strength, tear resistance, and dimensional stability provide countless solutions to industries, companies, and consumers.
