An electric motor assembly configured for use in a downhole pumping system includes a number of electrically conductive components that are insulated from fluids, mechanical abrasion, electrical current and electrical grounds using an advanced polyimide film. Preferred polyimide films include poly(4,4'-oxydiphenylene-pyromellitimide) and biphenyl-tetracarboxylic acid dianhydride (BPDA) type polyimide films. Magnet wire, stator laminates, stator coil end turns, motor leads and power cables can all be insulated with the selected polyimide film.
