Arlon Electronic Materials Announces Reintroduction of 85NT


Reading time ( words)

Arlon is reintroducing 85NT, a nonwoven aramid laminate and prepreg system.  Arlon’s 85NT is comprised of high tensile strength, para-aramid fibers with an extremely low coefficient of thermal expansion (-4 ppm/oC). When coated with resin, this combination of aramid substrate and thermoset chemistry produces laminates with unique and useful properties. Proprietary chemistry and process technology enables Arlon to coat polyimide and epoxy based resins on the nonwoven aramid. With a combination of material science and coating technology, Arlon reintroduces to the design and fabrication community 85NT laminate and prepreg product line. Arlon’s “new” 85NT has properties that are nearly identical to Arlon’s original 85NT.

  • Low in-plane (X,Y) expansion of 7-9 ppm/°C
  • Tg of Pure Polyimide (250oC)
  • Excellent dimensional stability and enhanced registration
  • Decomposition temperature of 426°C offering outstanding high-temperature life
  • PCBs typically 25% lighter in weight than conventional glass-reinforced laminates
  • Laser ablatable for high speed formation of microvias as small as 25μm
  • Electrical and mechanical properties meeting the requirements of IPC-4101/53
  • Compatible with lead-free processing
  • RoHS/WEEE compliant

Decreasing Bend Radius and Improving Reliability—Part I

10/11/2019 | Kelsey Smith, All Flex
Many of the issues that arise when using a flex circuit come from a lack of knowledge about how to properly design one, especially when the circuit is required to bend.

Communication, Part 2: Design Data Packages

10/11/2019 | Steve Williams, The Right Approach Consulting LLC
The first part of this six-part series highlighted ways that PCB fabricators and designers can better communicate, starting with how to qualify a board shop. In Part 2, Bob Chandler and Mark Thompson talk about the importance of preparing, sending, and receiving comprehensive (and ideally, perfectly complete) design data packages.

Standards: Why We Have Them and Live by Them

10/07/2019 | Alifiya Arastu, Jeff Beauchamp, Harry Kennedy, and Ruben Contreras, NCAB GROUP
Have you ever designed a board but received feedback that it couldn’t be manufactured unless changes were made? Or maybe you’ve designed a complex board and sent it to the factory only to find out that the manufacturer didn’t build the board to your expectations? PCBs are becoming more complex, factory options are growing, and expectations for product life cycles are becoming longer.
