Isola Laminate Systems inaugurates New R&D Center

Isola Laminate Systems Corporation, the U.S. subsidiary of Isola AG, has inaugurated their new R and D Center and Analytical Lab in the United States. We are very pleased that despite adverse market conditions, Isola can continue to invest in the development and commercialization of new products and technologies, notably in the High Frequency/ High Speed Digital and Thermal Reliability areas. This facility with new, advanced capabilities is tangible evidence of our long term commitment and will further strengthen our leadership position in emerging technologies, stated Michael Kowalski, CEO of Isola AG. The mufti-million-dollar facility was completed in October. The state-of-the-art 14,000 sq. ft. facility features a Polymer/Composite Lab, a new pilot/scale-up plant, and a fully functional Analytical Services Lab. The Polymer/Composite Lab will focus on screening and developing polymer chemistries, neat polymer characterization, composite property characterization, reaction kinetics and matrix-reinforcement compatibility studies. The pilot plant features mixing capabilities with advanced filler dispersion technology, a dedicated treater, oxidizer, and a pilot-scale press.

The new center, one of Isolas three global Centers of Competence, will continue work on developing new chemistries and substrates primarily for High Speed and High Frequency platforms, Thermal Resistance and Reliability. Isola also conducts development in Europe emphasizing continuous product improvement, Thermal Management, Halogen Free materials, and Optical technologies as well as in Asia with an emphasis on Chip Packaging and High-Density Interconnect development.

“Isola has demonstrated a strong track record of bringing important new technologies to market at a quick pace. This facility will further enhance our time-to-market performance,” stated Tarun Amla, Vice President of Operations and Technology for Isola Laminate Systems Corp.

In addition to routine IPC testing, the Analytical Services Lab has capabilities for full thermal analysis with multiple DSCs, TMAs, TGAs and DMAs. The Microscopy Lab features Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEM), Energy Dispersive Spectrocopy (EDS), Optical Microscopy, and Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). The Electrical Lab can test electrical properties at frequencies up to 12 Ghz.
