Plastic Film Capacitor Manufacturers

Film Capacitors are Non polarized, and may be used in AC or DC circuits.
Typical values range form 1000pF to 1uF for Polyerster Film, and 0.01uF to 18uF for metallized Film capacitors.
Standard Film Capacitor values change in multiples of 10, 12, 15, 18, 22, 27, 33, 39, 47, 56, 68, 82.
Normal Temperature Coefficient [TC] for Film Capacitors is +7%.

The following link provides a description of the different types of Film capacitors Capacitor Information.
The page provides the reasons to use one dielectric over another, to cover the question why use one type of film capacitor.
