Circuit Protection Electronics Production / Materials ceramic ceramic laminates laminates

ROGERS TC350 Plus laminates are ceramic filled PTFE-based woven glass reinforced composite materials providing a high performance, thermally enhanced material for the circuit designer. With a thermal conductivity of 1.24W/mK, this next generation PTFE-based laminate is suitable for higher power microwave and industrial heating applications requiring higher maximum operating temperatures, low circuit losses and enhanced thermal dissipation within the circuit board. The advanced filler system used enables the composite to have much improved mechanical drilling performance when compared with other competitive laminates. Standard laminates come with a smooth (Rq= 1.0µm) electrodeposited copper foil cladding to reduce insertion loss and RF heating of conductors within the circuit. Resistive foil and metal plate options are available upon request.
