Polystyrene Capacitors Properties

Polystyrene Capacitors Properties

Polystyrene capacitors are used within a limited number of applications. Polystyrene capacitor construction does not lend itself to surface mount technology and accordingly polystyrene capacitors tend to be used for leaded applications. As a result of their construction and limited use, these cap.....

Polypropylene Capacitors

Polypropylene Capacitors

Polypropylene capacitors form one of the many varieties of film capacitor that can be obtained. Available chiefly as leaded components, their use is not as wide as it was when leaded components were used almost exclusively. Nevertheless, polypropylene capacitors can be used to good effect in a nu.....

Polyester Capacitors

Polyester Capacitors

Polyester capacitors also are known as Mylar or PET capacitors are used as leaded capacitors in many applications.  They are used mainly in their leaded form. They are not produced as high tolerance capacitors, but they have a low ESR and are able to tolerate large spikes with a high rise time. .....

Polycarbonate Capacitor

Polycarbonate Capacitor

The polycarbonate capacitor has been available for many years. The polycarbonate dielectric material is very stable having a high tolerance and can operate at a temperature of the range of typically -55°C to +125°C without de-rating. Additionally, the insulation resistance and dissipation facto.....
