The guiding of highly charged ions through nanocapillaries in different insulating materials, such as polyethylene terephthalate, SiO<sub>2</sub>, and Al<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub> has been investigated by our group, using 7 keV Ne<sup>7+</sup> ions. We find transmission of ions incident at angles larger than the angle given by the capillary aspect ratio in all these materials. The measured angular distributions, however, vary with the membrane material. In this report we compare the experimental findings with the different membranes.
