An image (also below) in an answer to the question "How often is duct tape used during crewed space missions?" shows a roll of the gray stuff next to a roll of Kapton tape, aboard the International Space Station. What do astronauts use Kapton tape for?
We already have the question "Why are crew EVA cuff checklists wrapped in Kapton tape?" (with answer), so no need to repeat that.
Yes, Kapton is used extensively back on Earth in the design and manufacture of equipment, but this question is not about that. It is about why the astronauts in space use it from a roll, either to make or repair something.
