Features of Film Chips

The Film Chip is extremely thin and made with precise channels micromachined in layers of bonded resin films. It is flexible and can be curved. Through the mounting of fluid control devices such as miniature valves on the film, employment as a microTAS application is possible. Available film materials are chemically-inert Polyimide (PI), COC (Cyclic olefin copolymer) and Polyethylene naphthalate.
