Reading time ( words)

Insulectro, the largest distributor of materials for use in the printed circuit board and printed electronics industries, has announced it will distribute Pacothane lamination-assist products across Canada beginning April 1, 2019. Insulectro has distributed the popular PCB lamination products in the US for decades.

“Today we are announcing our distribution expansion of Pacothane across North America to include Canada,” Insulectro President and CEO Patrick Redfern commented. “For years, we have offered most of our best-in-class materials to Canadian PCB fabricators and adding Pacothane strengthens our already robust line card.”

Pacothane Technologies is the world's leading manufacturer of products to enhance and assist the production and quality assurance process for the lamination and manufacture of printed circuit boards (PCB).

Pacothane services the worldwide PCB and Smart Card markets, which includes rigid multilayer, rigid-flex, coverlayer flex, flexible multilayer, copper and unclad laminates. These circuit boards are integrated into a wide variety of applications and markets that include telecom, data communications, high speed computing, mobile devices, military, smart cards, medical and effectively all electronic products.

Best-selling products include Pacothane release films, PacoPads and Tripak press pads as well as PacoGard slip sheets and Paco-Via high-temperature release films. A line of conformable pads and release sheets include Pacothane Plus, PacoFlex Ultra, ThermoPads, and ThermoFilm.

Paco-Clutch is a new all-in-one conformable release film package that is specifically engineered for use by PCB multilayer manufacturers that laminate etched copper laminate cores, in place of copper foil in the outer layer construction.

“We are proud to extend our relationship with Pacothane and expand our line with the new Paco technology products. With eleven stocking locations in North America, including Canada, Insulectro carries inventory near our customers for maximum availability,” Redfern concluded.

Insulectro supplies advanced engineered materials manufactured by Isola, DuPont, LCOA, CAC, Inc., Pacothane, Focus Tech Chemicals, EMD Performance Materials, Shikoku and Oak Mitsui.

These products are used by its customers to fabricate complex, multilayer circuit boards and to manufacture printed electronics components. Insulectro serves a broad customer base manufacturing rigid, rigid-flex and flexible circuit boards for applications in a variety of end markets including aeronautics, telecom, data communications, high speed computing, mobile devices, military, and medical. Insulectro combines its premier product offering with local inventory across North America, fabrication capabilities and backed up by expert customer and technical support services.

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!”
