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.

Solder Mask Curing: UV Bump Overview

08/19/2019 | Nikolaus Schubkegel
Ultraviolet (UV) bump, also called UV cure, is a processing step in which the solder mask pattern is irradiated with ultraviolet and infrared light. This step is performed with special equipment that is built as a continuous flow system, which consists of a conveyor belt and tubular UV lamps mounted above and below the belt. Read on to find out more about this process.

Foresite CEO Terry Munson recently spoke with Andy Shaughnessy during the IPC High-Reliability Forum and Microvia Summit in Baltimore about his presentation on the causes of conductive anodic filament (CAF), the dangers of resin starvation, and what advice he'd give to PCB designers to avoid those types of failures.

A Guide to High-reliability PCBs from Design to Specification

07/24/2019 | Jeff Beauchamp, NCAB Group
Creating reliable PCBs is an outcome of considering all aspects that can affect reliability as early as possible in the design process. The further down the design process, the more expensive and risky it can be to fix. As they say, everything starts with the design. Because a good board design improves the reliability of the end product and lessens the risk of failure.
