Rogers Corp. introduces R/flex JADE series adhesive system for flex circuit designs

Rogers Corporation : 22 November, 2006  (Company News)
Rogers Corporation is introducing R/flex JADE series flexible circuit materials, which are the next generation of the industry-leading R/flex CRYSTAL epoxy adhesive system. Environmentally friendly, these materials meet flammability requirements without the use of halogens. They are also lead-free solder capable, meeting the environmental requirements imposed upon commercial applications worldwide without compromising the performance required for today
Whatís new about this product? R/flex JADE flexible circuit materials display superior thermal stability and are robust enough to withstand multiple passes through lead-free processing. Like the traditional R/flex CRYSTAL product line, R/flex JADE flexible circuit materials offer increased yields and better results in fine-line, tight tolerance designs due to excellent dimensional stability properties.

Product features and benefits include:

RoHS compliant, Halogen-free flame retardant system
High Tg (glass transition temperature) allows for higher temperature exposures, higher yields in multilayer builds, and better flex life despite rigorous processing conditions
Superior thermal stability allows R/flex JADE material to withstand multiple passes through lead-free soldering
Transparent adhesive system facilitates optical inspection
Available in bonding film, coverlay, and flexible copper clad laminate constructions.
R/flex JADE flexible circuit materials are formulated to suit the most technically demanding circuit applications: hard disk drives, cellular phones, laptop computers, personal digital assistants, semiconductor packages, and many others.

The family of R/flex flexible circuit materials is manufactured under rigorous process control. Process capabilities are continuously monitored for critical properties such as peel strength and dimensional stability.

Environmental Standards: R/flex JADE products contain no cadmium, lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium compounds, PBBs, PBDEs and meet or exceed the following industry standards:

IEC and JPCA halogen-free requirements

European Unionís RoHS directives
