C 2.8 COMPARISON DIAGRAMS, ORGANIC DIELECTRICS
This page summarizes basic overview of film and foil organic dielectric capacitors.
The various dielectric types were described in more details on previous pages:
- POLYESTER (PET) / KT / MKT and POLYETHYLENE NAPHTALATE (PEN) Organic Dielectric Capacitors
- POLYPROPYLENE (PP) / KP / MKP and POLYCARBONATE (PC) / KC / MKC Organic Dielectric Capacitors
- POLYSTYRENE (PS), POLYPHENYLENE SULFIDE (PPS), TEFLON (PTFE) and POLYSULFONE (PSU) Organic Dielectric Capacitors
