AISMALIBAR Ramps Up Production of Bond Sheet Prepreg and Thin Lam Cores


Reading time ( words)

AISMALIBAR has increased production of their HTC Bond Sheet Prepreg and Thin Lam Cores. Customers have been using HTC Bond Sheets to connect cutting edge high power LEDs mounted on MPCBs to heat sinks to allow for superior heat dissipation. They are also using both the Bond Sheets and Thin Lam together to press custom IMS multilayer builds providing industry leading dielectric strength, thermal conductivity and thermal lifespan.

Jeff Brandman, President of Aismalibar North America, says “We are excited to see our customers use our Bond Sheets and Thin Lam in creative ways to build new products. Our customers continue to find innovative applications for these high performance materials.”

HTC Bond Sheets are a B-Stage glass reinforced dielectric prepreg with a high thermal conductivity. They are created with an epoxy ceramic chemistry and are intended for the effective bonding between PCBs and heat sinks.

HTC Thin Lam is a double-sided copper clad thin laminate composed of a thermally conductive polymeric glass reinforced prepreg used to produce double sided and multilayer PCBs. The Thin Lam typically bonds to a metal heat dissipater using standard multilayer lamination processes with HTC Bond Sheets.

As the dielectric layers get reduced, testing electric insulation becomes more important. It is a regular policy at AISMALIBAR to realize constant quality control standards in order to high pot test 100% of the substrates before delivery to end users. This guarantees the dielectric insulation of the copper and aluminium conductive layers.

Cobritherm has been approved by top OEMs around the world with a focus on the automotive, lighting and power electronics industries. It has collected excellent results in endurance testing and has the UL Recognition as one of the best Insulated Metal Substrates after 60,000 hours.

About Aismalibar

AISMALIBAR was one of the first IMS laminate manufacturers in the world and was the first in Europe. AISMALIBAR is proud to introduce their material to the North American market in 2012. Their product IMS Cobritherm ® is a qualified and recognized Insulated Metal Substrate which gives the best thermal management solutions with high thermal conductivity, low thermal impedance and high dielectric capacity. AISMALIBAR has implement a 100% proof test with 1-3KV (High Pot Test) to all IMS laminates coming out of their plant. This is the only way to insure the dialectical strength is perfect and that production problems are detected before PCBs arrive to the end user.

Engineering RF Dielectric Material to Enable 5G/6G Antenna Devices

04/11/2022 | Chudy Roosevelt Nwachukwu, ITEQ Corporation
Accurate characterization of frequency-dependent inhomogeneous dielectric material properties is key to the optimal design of high performance and cost-effective PCB antennas. These antennas will be required to enable the plethora of devices forecasted for 5G/6G communication. Therefore IT-88GMW, an advanced resin system reinforced with tightly woven thin glass fibers has been formulated to improve the Q-factor of interconnects and passive components fabricated on PCB laminates.

Improved Thermal Interface Materials For Cooling High-Power Electronics

03/31/2022 | Jeff Brandman, Aismalibar North America
Heat has been a significant concern in electronics since the beginning of the electronics age when hot glowing vacuum tubes were first used to receive and transmit data bits. The transistor and integrated circuit effectively solved that basic problem, but increases in integration resulted in increased concentration of heat, exacerbated by relentless increases in operating frequency. While improvements in electronics technology have been able to mitigate many thermal issues at chip level thanks to improved semiconductor designs devised to operate at lower voltages (thus requiring less energy) the thermal management challenge continues to vex electronic product developers.

Institute of Circuit Technology: A Novel Approach to Recycling PCBs

03/10/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
A two-year project funded by an Innovate UK SMART Grant aims to reduce the impact of e-waste using naturally derived, biodegradable and nontoxic products. Those attending the webinar for the Institute of Circuit Technology’s annual meeting on March 2 learned more about the project, as well as statutory paperwork obligations of the UK REACH regulations. Following the formal business, ICT Chair Emma Hudson introduced and moderated this technical webinar.
