Arlon’s 85HP Receives Official IPC Validation to IPC-4101E-WAM1/43


Reading time ( words)

Arlon Electronic Materials is pleased to announce that IPC Validation Services officially recognizes Arlon’s 85HP laminate as having passed all tests that meets or exceeds the product performance requirements of IPC-4101E-WAM1/43. By achieving validation to slash sheet 43, Arlon’s 85HP is distinguished as the most thermally stable, pure polyimide resin system on the market. Specifically, 85HP meets the test criteria for less than 1% coefficient of thermal expansion in the Z axis between 50o to 260o C. In “Time to Delamination” tests at 300o C, 85HP withstood thermal exposure for longer than 60 minutes, far exceeding the slash 43 requirement of 5 minutes.  Furthermore, 85HP moisture absorption of 0.19% is well below the slash 43 criteria of 0.5% maximum. CTE (x-y plane) of the 85HP is 17 ppm matching the CTE of copper. In addition to these slash 43 requirements, 85HP has a thermal conductivity of 0.50 W/mK, which is two times (2X) greater than other pure polyimide CCL materials. 

These unique attributes are why 85HP is the first polyimide product to be validated to three IPC-4101 slash sheets 40, 41 and 43.

Test results for 85HP’s Validation can be found on the IPC Validation Services website

Applications for Arlon’s 85HP include high layer count MLB’s incorporating multiple sequential lamination operations, thick copper MLB’s, high power copper internal planes, deep space electronics, down-hole oil and gas drill equipment, engine control modules, rocket motor controls, and avionic electronics.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

If you’re in the United States like I am, and if you celebrated with a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, like my family did, then you just might have fallen asleep sitting up in a chair (or in my case, stretched out on the couch) and missed some of the highlights in the news this week. Never fear, I woke up early to bring the top five news items you should know for this week. We have industry bookings and sales news from IPC, some news from the flex sector, an explanation of induction lamination from Happy Holden, and two different takes on “sustainability.”

New Methods for Quantifying PCB Design Weaknesses and Manufacturing Challenges

Gerry Partida explains, "The industry is at a new point in evolving how we look at building boards. Our industry has historically built boards and then tried to find a test for them. Then, when they found a test for it, they figured out that it needed to be analyzed before they built the board. We did this with electrical test. We built boards and down the road, as people started asking, “Why am I buying bad boards? We should electrically test them,” electrical test was introduced, reluctantly, into the test part of manufacturing printed circuit boards by suppliers or fabricators. Then they embraced it. But when we started testing boards, we did comparison tests."

This week’s biggest news came in the form of industry briefings—there were a lot of them and the news was universally positive. The news you need to read for this week includes three reports from IPC detailing: the strength and risks in the global economic recovery; a strong EMS book-to-bill ratio; and strong North American PCB sales.
