Isola Group Announces Launch of FR408HR

CHANDLER, ARIZONA, March 28, 2008 ISOLA GROUP, S.A.R.L. a leading designer, developer and manufacturer of high performance base materials for the printed circuit board industry, today announced the launch of FR408HR, its next generation lead-free compatible, low-loss product. FR408HR’s thermally and electrically enhanced resin system is designed to meet the OEM needs for new designs that have high layer counts, heavier copper weights and require higher bandwidth. FR408 HR has a Tg of 200 Deg C, a decomposition temperature of 356 Deg C and delivers a 35% reduction in Z axis expansion and a 25% improvement in dielectric properties over competitive products in its space.

FR408HR addresses the performance gaps that exist today in the high speed and high frequency design space such as the ability of a product to withstand elevated temperature assembly and sensitivity to moisture while delivering excellent electrical performance.

“Our testing, which involved multiple passes at 260 C assembly after a prolonged exposure to high humidity and temperature on 5.5 mm thick very high layer count boards, showed no degradation in performance. We are really pleased with these initial results”, stated Tarun Amla, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of Isola.

The product is currently being manufactured in Chandler Arizona and is under scale up in Isola’s Asian facilities.
