Laminate Composites For RF/Microwave Applications
Arlon Microwave Materials specializes in products made from fluoropolymers (i.e. PTFE), ceramic-filled fluoropolymers, ceramic-filled hydrocarbon thermosets, and other materials that deliver the electrical performance needed in frequency-dependent circuit applications. These products are supplied as copper-clad laminates with bonding plies, or prepregs, for production of multilayer printed circuits. Arlon has over "50 years of experience in microwave materials", today providing products that are used to make combiner boards and feed networks for microwave applications as well as basestation antennas and power amplifier boards for the wireless telecommunications infrastructure market.
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
AD450: RF & Microwave Laminate
Arlon’s AD450 is a woven fiberglass reinforced, ceramic filled, PTFE-based composite material for use as a printed circuit board substrate. It can be specified to replace Arlon AR450, a composite with similar electrical properties, but based on non-woven fiberglass reinforcement.
Laminate For RF And Microwave Printed Circuit Boards: AD255C
Arlon’s AD255C is the third generation, commercial microwave and RF laminate material designed with low dielectric, low cost and excellent low loss characteristics. AD255C is built on a cost-effective combination of composite chemistry and construction to yield an uncompromising level of price-performance for today’s telecommunication infrastructure.
AD300A: PTFE/Woven Fiberglass/Micro-Ceramic Filled Laminate
AD300A is a woven fiberglass reinforced PTFE/Microfine Ceramic composite material and is a significant improvement in
cost/performance over traditional fluoropolymer-glass laminates. This combination offers designers an advantage for
improving electrical performance through the use of advanced material without the additional cost traditionally
associated with higher performance...
CuClad: RF & Microwave Laminates
CuClad® laminates are woven fiberglass/PTFE composite materials for use as printed circuit board substrates. Using precision control of the fiberglass/PTFE ratio, CuClad laminates offer a range of choices from the lowest dielectric constant and loss tangent to a more highly reinforced laminate with better dimensional stability
PIM Series: Passive Intermodulation Laminates
Arlon’s reduced Passive Intermodulation (PIM) laminates are a series of woven fiberglass reinforced Teflon (PTFE) composite materials designed for use as printed circuit laminates.
AD1000: High Dielectric Constant Laminate
AD1000 is a high dielectric constant
substrate that permits circuit miniaturization
compared to traditional low loss materials. It is
especially beneficial for power amplifiers, filters,
couplers and other components using low
