Arlon Releases Revolutionary Product

Reading time ( words)

Arlon Electronic Materials, Rancho Cucamonga, CA, is proud to announce the release of its newest polyimide material 86HP.

This revolutionary polyimide laminate system is Anti-CAF, low z-axis expansion (0– 2600C), twice the thermal conductivity of conventional epoxy or polyimide systems, ideal for high layer count, HDI, multiple sequential lamination cycles. Arlon’s 86HP offers the lowest dielectric constant and loss tangent currently available in polyimide laminate materials.  Additionally, Arlon’s 86HP is halogen free and meets UL 94V-0. 

The 86HP has been designed for applications in which extended thermal exposure and long service life are critical.  Typical applications include space, avionics, aerospace, industrial and military; applications where epoxy systems may not deliver long term reliability.

Mark Carlson, Arlon’s Global OEM Marketing Manager stated “The Anti-CAF performance of the 86HP will forever change the way circuits are designed using polyimide laminate system, because it allows for reduced hole-to-hole spacing. Designers also get the added benefits with 86HP of lower Dk and significantly lower Df than are found in traditional polyimide systems.”

Arlon’s 86HP has wide process latitude in lamination curing temperatures, this allows for up to 7 sequential lamination cycles.  Another benefit of the 86HP is the extended drill life over traditional polyimide systems, reducing the cost of fabrication. “Our fabricator base is reporting up to 1000 drill hits on PCBs fabricated with 86HP versus 100-200 hits on traditional polyimides.” added Mr. Carlson.

The 86HP laminates will be manufactured at Arlon’s Rancho Cucamonga, CA facility.  The product is available for purchase through all Arlon’s distributors and sales representatives globally.

Ventec: Contextualizing the CHIPS Act

01/05/2023 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson hears from Alun Morgan, Technology Ambassador at Ventec, and Mark Goodwin, Ventec’s COO, about the benefits and risks posed by new PCB-oriented legislation in the U.S. and Europe. Faced with a rapidly consolidating industry, especially in the face of mounting pressure from the Russia-fueled energy crisis, government intervention is a welcome prospect—as long as legislators are committed to addressing the full scope of the issue, including the supply chain’s migration to Asia. Ventec is hopeful that, having been called on to educate government officials on the challenges facing the industry, they will help spur future legislative changes that will protect and grow the industry’s interests.

EIPC Technical Snapshot: ‘Tremendous Uncertainty’ in Global PCB Marketplace

10/26/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
For the past two years, EIPC’s Technical Snapshot series has kept us extremely well-informed on developments in printed circuit materials and manufacturing technologies. But what is currently happening in the global PCB market, and how is Europe and the rest of the world affected by the current world situation? The 19th chapter (coincidentally on Oct. 19) in the series gave us a privileged opportunity to find out, as two leading industry analysts presented their observations and opinions in a webinar introduced and moderated by EIPC technical director Tarja Rapala-Virtanen.
