Laminates

PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

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
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 impedance lines.
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.

Rogers Corporation offers an array of RO4835™ high frequency circuit materials designed to operate up to 40 GHz, and provide 10x more resistance to oxidation than standard RF thermoset materials. These laminates feature a dielectric constant of 3.48 with a dissipation factor of 0.0037 (measured at 10 GHz). They are ideal for power amplifiers, phased-array radar, automotive radar, sensor applications, and other applications requiring low insertion loss.

IsoClad laminates are nonwoven fiberglass/PTFE composites for use as printed circuit board substrates. The nonwoven reinforcement allows these laminates to be used more easily in applications where the final circuit will be bent to shape. Conformal or “wrap-around” antennas are a good example
The ComClad family of high-frequency laminates for semi-rigid or flexible circuits used in wireless communications is the first of its kind...
Arlon’s Next Generation "AD350A" is a woven fiberglass reinforced, ceramic filled, PTFE-based composite material for use as a printed circuit board substrate.
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...
