AD Series: RF And Microwave Laminates
Arlon's AD Series Laminates is a group of woven fiberglass-reinforced PTFE composite materials designed for use as printed circuit board substrates. These materials combine the excellent low loss electrical properties of PTFE resin with the enhanced value of costeffective heavier fiberglass styles to provide low cost laminate materials suitable for high volume commercial wireless communication applications

Arlon's AD Series Laminates are a group of woven fiberglass-reinforced PTFE composite laminates designed for use as printed circuit board substrates. These laminates combine the excellent low loss electrical properties of PTFE resin with the enhanced value of costeffective heavier fiberglass styles to provide low cost laminate materials suitable for high volume commercial wireless communication applications.

The AD Series laminates are currently available in a limited combination of dielectric thickness (0.015" - 0.062") and dielectric constant (2.5 - 3.5). Thicker dielectrics can be developed to meet customer requirements. The higher weight ratio of fiberglass to PTFE resin yields laminates with greater dimensional stability than is normally expected of PTFE-based substrates.

Stability of PTFE over a wide frequency range and low loss makes AD Series laminates ideal for a variety of microwave and R/F applications in telecom industry. AD Series laminates may be processed with standard PTFE materials. Because there is a relatively higher percentage of fiberglass, thermal expansion is reduced in all directions, improving plated through hole reliability.

Next Generation of Lower Loss Materials, Available with PIM Technology;  Not Available below 0.020".

Typical thicknesses include 0.030", 0.031", 0.040", 0.060", and 0.062".  Inquire for thicker laminates.
