Ventec Launches VT-5A2: Next Generation, Best-in-Class High Tg Thin-Core and Pre-Preg Material


Reading time ( words)

Ventec International is adding to its extensive thermally conductive laminate and pre-preg range with the launch of the VT-5A2, a next-generation best-in-class, high Tg thin-core and pre-preg material.

VT-5A2 is designed for the world's most thermally demanding printed circuit board (PCB) applications such as power converters, hybrid multilayers and high-power electronics with heavy copper designs, providing enhanced signal stability in harsh environments. With VT-5A2, Ventec has created its highest-performance thermally conductive laminate material so far, with a polymer matrix that is fully compatible with Ventec laminates, epoxy or polyimide-based materials including tec-speed®, thus allowing total compatibility in the manufacture of hybrid multilayer boards.

With a thermal conductivity eight times that of FR-4, VT-5A2 delivers class-leading thermal performance and high flowability for perfect encapsulation, allowing for better board design for applications requiring critical thermal management in harsh environments. Customers can choose between thin core and pre-preg variants. VT-5A2 features a thermal conductivity of 2.2 W/m.K, a high Tg of 190°C, best-in-class thermal performance (T260 >60 Minutes, T288 >30 Minutes and T300 >15 Minutes) and M.O.T. up to 150°C. VT-5A2 is lead-free assembly compatible, fulfills RoHS and WEEE requirements and complies with UL94 V0.

The VT-5A2 thermally conductive laminate is manufactured by Ventec using strict quality controlled processes that are certified to AS9100 Revision C, ISO/TS16949 and ISO 9001:2015, and, like all Ventec products, is backed by a fully controlled and managed global supply chain, sales and support network.

EIPC Technical Snapshot: Supply Chain and Material Price Pressures

04/26/2021 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
EIPC’s seventh Technical Snapshot webinar on April 14 was timely and appropriate. In the context of current supply chain issues and material price pressures facing the PCB industry, particularly in Europe, the EIPC team brought together an outstanding group of experts—each a leading authority in his field—to analyse and comment upon the areas of concern and to respond to questions raised by a capacity audience. As Alun Morgan said, “If you don’t use the European supply chain, you won’t have it anymore!”

Time, Space, Structure, and Model Analysis of CCL Price Increase

04/19/2021 | Hu Yang, Zhongtai Securities Research Center
According to the CCL Association, copper foil accounts for the largest proportion of raw materials (traditional CCL uses epoxy resin, glass fiber cloth and copper as raw materials). Copper foil in thin plate accounts for about 30% of the overall cost; in thick plate copper accounts for 50%. In CCL production, using Shengyi Technology and Chaohua Technology as examples, the cost of raw materials accounts for about 88% of the total cost, with labor accounting for about 4%. Other costs such as equipment depreciation account for about 8%.

Top Five Takeaways from IPC APEX EXPO 2021
