Shengyi Technology Earns UL Listing for FR-4 with RTI of 150°C


Reading time ( words)

For over 50 years, printed circuit applications using FR-4 as a base material were limited to 130°C continuous maximum operating temperature (MOT). This was more a definition limit set by UL and ANSI rather than a lack of thermal performance by the FR-4 products. Recently, UL changed the definition to allow FR-4 to be used at temperatures up to 150°C if the long term thermal aging (LTTA) data passed the electrical and mechanical requirements.  

Shengyi is the first base material supplier world-wide to have an FR-4 product listed with an electrical and mechanical Relative Thermal Index (RTI) of 150°C. The product, S1170G, is a halogen-free epoxy system with a Tg of 180°C and a Td of 390°C designed for lead-free processing. The excellent CAF resistance allows S1170G to be used for high reliability applications including automotive, smartphone, and consumer electronics

The product is listed in Shengyi’s UL File # E109769 as an ANSI Grade FR-15.1. FR-15.1 indicates that it is a halogen-free FR-4 product with RTI of 150°C.

Board designers can feel more comfortable knowing that S1170G can be used at higher   temperatures than for traditional FR-4s. Other current FR-4 products will also be listed as

FR-15 in the Shengyi UL file as customer requirements dictate.

Venue for the 2018 EIPC Winter Conference was the splendid new Alstom Transport Information Solutions facility in Villeurbanne, in the Lyon metropolitan area of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in eastern France. An extremely popular event—117 delegates represented a total of 20 countries, unprecedented in recent years, and only just fitted into Alstom’s conference suite. Indeed, some were even standing at the back!
