Term:

Surface Mount Film

Definition:

Surface mount film capacitors are similar to through-hole film capacitors with the leads replaced by a lead-frame. Since these are typically used in reflow applications, the film used as the dielectric layer is typically polyester, PPS, or impregnated paper.

For extra protection against moisture or extreme temperatures, encapsulated versions of the capacitors are available.
