What does kapton tape do?

The kapton tape has been created using a specially developed polyimide film. This is a unique kind of film that was developed by DuPoint in the late 1900s.Because of this it can withstand extreme temperatures, making it perfect for applications in cases where excessive heat or cold is an everyday occurrence.

Since it can tolerate temperatures in the range of -452 to +752 degree F without much trouble, it is not surprising to find out that this amazing tape has literally gone to the moon (and beyond).
