Arlon Releases Revolutionary Product

Reading time ( words)

Arlon Electronic Materials, Rancho Cucamonga, CA, is proud to announce the release of its newest polyimide material 86HP.

This revolutionary polyimide laminate system is Anti-CAF, low z-axis expansion (0– 2600C), twice the thermal conductivity of conventional epoxy or polyimide systems, ideal for high layer count, HDI, multiple sequential lamination cycles. Arlon’s 86HP offers the lowest dielectric constant and loss tangent currently available in polyimide laminate materials.  Additionally, Arlon’s 86HP is halogen free and meets UL 94V-0. 

The 86HP has been designed for applications in which extended thermal exposure and long service life are critical.  Typical applications include space, avionics, aerospace, industrial and military; applications where epoxy systems may not deliver long term reliability.

Mark Carlson, Arlon’s Global OEM Marketing Manager stated “The Anti-CAF performance of the 86HP will forever change the way circuits are designed using polyimide laminate system, because it allows for reduced hole-to-hole spacing. Designers also get the added benefits with 86HP of lower Dk and significantly lower Df than are found in traditional polyimide systems.”

Arlon’s 86HP has wide process latitude in lamination curing temperatures, this allows for up to 7 sequential lamination cycles.  Another benefit of the 86HP is the extended drill life over traditional polyimide systems, reducing the cost of fabrication. “Our fabricator base is reporting up to 1000 drill hits on PCBs fabricated with 86HP versus 100-200 hits on traditional polyimides.” added Mr. Carlson.

The 86HP laminates will be manufactured at Arlon’s Rancho Cucamonga, CA facility.  The product is available for purchase through all Arlon’s distributors and sales representatives globally.

Normally, the holiday season is a slow(ish) news time, but this year just feels different. My opinion is that the technology industry banked up a whole bunch of innovations and new products during the pandemic disruptions, which are coming to market as quickly as possible. The November/December news is full of technology discussion, as my selections this week clearly demonstrate.

The industry news cycle seems to be picking up speed lately. Of course, 30 days into the quarter is about when public companies announce their results, and in the midst of this worldwide financial situation, we’ve got all eyes on anything coming out from our counterparts in the industry. I’ve noticed that global corporate results (Nan Ya PCB and TTM, in particular) do seem to be on everyone’s radar. In addition to financial news, trade shows are popping back up around the world—Europe, India, and a special report from editor Andy Shaughnessy, who took his own road trip to Raleigh, reporting on PCB Carolina, which had its own heyday this year.

I’ve been in Washington, D.C., most of this week, attending and reporting on the IPC Advanced Packaging Symposium. You’ll see more content from me in the weeks and months to come as I sort through and highlight the varied aspects of this ground-breaking event. If you’re in this industry, advanced packaging will affect you, make no mistake about it.
