Actually, DC Cox posted the Kapton info.
I agree Kapton is great stuff. You can make large value capacitors in a small
space - but it is very expensive. If someone could find a bunch of this stuff
surplus it would be a gold mine. We used to manufacture computer keyboards
where the individual switch function was achieved by changing a small
capacitance. We used vacuum deposited aluminum on .50 mil mylar. We did a
lot of testing with Kapton but could not afford to use it in production.
