Polyimide is a polymeric plastic material, engineered for long term performance at very high temperatures, in excess of 250° C for prolonged periods of time.
Polyimide is made from two key ingredients, which may each contain traces of impurities, such as water vapor, or even traces of iron from the chemical drums containing solvents used.
Major producers of polyimide film, Kaneka High Tech Materials(KHM) (Manufacturing facilities in Texas and Japan) and Dupont have reacted to this situation and have announced plans to significantly increase capacity sometime during the first half of 2002.
Consumption of polyimide and other imide polymer resins in Asian countries other than Japan, including China, India, the Republic of Korea, Malaysia and Taiwan, has been growing rapidly in recent years despite the global economic recession
