185HR

Standard Loss, Thermally Robust Epoxy Laminate and Prepreg

185HR laminate and prepreg materials are a proprietary, high-performance resin system with a Tg of 180°C for multilayer Printed Wiring Board (PWB) applications where maximum thermal performance and reliability are required.

Thermal Performance

Tg: 180°C
Td: 340°C

Electrical Performance

Dk: 4.01
Df: 0.020

Industry Approvals

IPC-4101 /98 /99 /101 /126
UL - File Number E41625

185HR laminate and prepreg materials are manufactured using Isola’s patented technology, reinforced with electrical grade (E-glass) glass fabric. This system delivers a 340°C decomposition temperature, a lower Z-axis expansion and offers lower loss compared to competitive products in this space. The 185HR system is also laser fluorescing and UV blocking for maximum compatibility with Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) systems, optical positioning systems and photoimageable solder mask imaging.
