EMC Gains License to Produce Arlon Products

Reading time ( words)

Arlon Electronic Materials, Rancho Cucamonga, CA, is pleased to announce the company has entered into a licensing agreement with Elite Materials Co. Ltd. (EMC), Taiwan. Under the terms of this agreement, EMC will commence volume production of Arlon’s flag ship polyimide material 85N. Arlon’s and EMC’s product engineer teams initiated this effort in early 2022. The polyimide product produced by EMC will be marketed as EM-85N. The EM-85N material meets or exceeds the performance requirements of IPC-4101-WAM-1. The product will be certified to both /40 and /41. Offering equivalent product performance to Arlon’s 85N at a lower production cost through EMC is the goal in creating EM-85N. EMC is granted file copy authorization by Underwriters Laboratories to manufacture Arlon’s 85N utilizing Arlon’s file number E48692.

“This collaborative effort will greatly benefit the users of Arlon’s 85N product in Asia, Europe, and North America.” Stated Mark Carlson, Arlon’s Global OEM Marketing Manager. “The location of EMC’s Taiwan volume production facility will reduce the logistics costs to our customer base in SE Asia. Leveraging the production capabilities of EMC to manufacture EM-85N in Taiwan provides a cost advantage on EM-85N that is not obtainable if produced in North America. The EM-85N laminates will be available to Arlon’s North American customer base in early 2023.” Added Mr. Carlson.

Data sheets for the product are available at: www.emctw.com or www.arlonemd.com.

Electronica 2022: Happy to Be Back in Munich

11/21/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
As we stepped out of the hotel into the drizzling rain, we were relieved that it wasn’t snow. Looking down the escalator into the U2 platform in Munich’s Hauptbahnhof central station early on the morning of Tuesday, Nov. 15 and observing the mass of humanity pushing and shoving to cram into trains to the exhibition centre, it appeared that a significant proportion of the international electronics industry had gathered to attend electronica 2022, co-located with SEMICON Europa and recognised as the world’s leading trade fair and conference for electronics.
