Paper Capacitor is a component that is made by placing paper, soaked with mineral oil, between two strips of foil. The assembly is rolled up, and wire leads are attached to the two pieces of foil. Finally, the rolled-up foil and paper are enclosed in a cylindrical case. These components are sometimes found in radio-frequency (RF) electronic equipment. They have values ranging from about 0.001 microfarads (µF) to 0.1 µF, and can handle low to moderate voltages, usually up to about 1000 volts.
