ESA Approval for Ventec VT-901 Material in ACB Belgium Rigid & Flex-Rigid Production


Reading time ( words)

Ventec International Group Co., Ltd. is pleased to announce that its VT-901 polyimide material is now fully qualified by ESA in ACB Belgium’s manufacturing process for rigid and rigid-flex polyimide PCBs and HDI PCBs.

With high Td (395oC), a Tg of 250oC and Low-Axis CTE (50), Ventec's VT-901 polyimide material provides the extremely high reliability performance demanded by ACB’s flex & flex-rigid and HDI PCB manufacturing process that meets ESA requirements.

Ventec manufactures all VT-901 polyimide using specially designed treaters with multiple stage filtration systems and 100% Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) for prepreg FOD-control. The same specialist equipment is used for the production of thin-core laminates for use in the most demanding space and aerospace PCB applications. ACB's state-of-the-art PCB manufacturing facility in Dendermonde (Belgium) and the AS9100 Rev D accreditation of Ventec's manufacturing and distribution facilities, position both companies as market-leaders within the space and aerospace electronics supply chain.

Joachim Verhegge, ACB’s Product Engineering Manager, says: 'Meeting and exceeding the highest possible standards of quality and performance is our highest priority. We are pleased to receive ESA approval for the use of Ventec's material in our designs and look forward to continuing to work closely with ESA in meeting their requirements.'

Mark Goodwin, Ventec COO EMEA & USA, commented: ‘I'm delighted with our long-term technology partnership with ACB, assisting them through close cooperation to further strengthen their position for aerospace-standard solutions and finished PCBs. The ESA approval demonstrates the thermal robustness of Ventec VT-901 polyimide and its suitability for use in high reliability rigid and flex rigid multi-layers in the demanding aerospace sector.'

Ventec International is a world leader in the production of polyimide & high reliability epoxy laminates and prepregs and specialist provider of thermal management and IMS solutions.

All Flex Discusses Merger and New Medical Applications

11/19/2021 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
I recently spoke with Jamin Taylor, vice president of sales and marketing at All Flex Flexible Circuits in Minnesota. We discussed the company’s recent merger with Printed Circuits Inc., and some creative new flex applications, including flexible heaters and catheters for the medical field. As Jamin explains, "It’s always interesting to see different technologies amongst different companies. We’re working on a few new applications and products, like being able to do some fine lines and flex materials, but with large format, a longer format than usual. Some of their capabilities with lasering and fine features really help with our long flex capability; when we merge the two, we see a new market being created for that technology."

For the first time since its foundation in 1974, the Institute of Circuit Technology had no alternative than to conduct its Annual General Meeting online. The event, which took place on February 25, 2021, was remarkably well-attended, and was followed, as is traditional, by a technical seminar. The seminar became a webinar focused on novel materials and methods for printed circuit fabrication and moderated by ICT Chair Emma Hudson.
