  • Publication number: 20210155768
    Abstract: In one aspect, a single layer polymer film includes 25 to 97.5 wt % of a polyimide having a refractive index of 1.74 or less, 0.5 to 20 wt % of a matting agent and 1 to 30 wt % of a black colorant. On an air side, the single layer polymer film has an L* color of 33 or less and a 60° gloss of 10 or less. In another aspect, a single layer polymer film includes 80 to 99 wt % of a polyimide having a refractive index of 1.74 or less and 1 to 30 wt % of a black colorant. A surface of the single layer polymer film has been textured and has a maximum roughness (Spv) of 7 ?m or more, an L* of 33 or less and a 60° gloss of 10 or less.

  • Publication number: 20210111097
    Abstract: A thermal substrate includes a multilayer film, a first conductive layer adhered to the first outer layer of the multilayer film and a second conductive layer adhered to the second outer layer of the multilayer film. The multilayer film includes a first outer layer including a first thermoplastic polyimide, a core layer including a polyimide and a second outer layer including a second thermoplastic polyimide. The multilayer film has a total thickness in a range of from 5 to 150 ?m, and the first outer layer, the core layer and the second outer layer each include a thermally conductive filler. The first conductive layer and the second conductive layer each have a thickness in a range of from 250 to 3000 ?m.
