Versatile Capacitor, a First Choice for Circuit Designers

Polycarbonate film capacitors are the superior choice for a wide range of electronic applications. That’s why they’ve gained such broad acceptance and the first choice of circuit designers for decades. Now we’re being told, that no longer is anyone going to produce the right grade of polycarbonate film. And once existing inventories are gone, well, these polycarbonate capacitors will be a thing of the past. NOT TRUE!

We produce our own polycarbonate film in house. We always have, and we plan to continue to be a source. So, now you don’t have to make that change, or be forced to settle for a substitute capacitor that doesn’t offer the combined advantages of performance, reliability, compact size and cost!

Type MC12 is a versatile metallized polycarbonate capacitor offered in a wrap and fill tubular configuration with axial leads, designed for the following typical applications: commercial-industrial including analog and timing circuits, high frequency, and filter networks.
