A11

No-Flo® Specialty Prepreg

The A11 family of no-flow prepregs consists of proprietary resin systems specifically formulated for optimal performance in bonding applications requiring minimal resin flow and consistency in lamination.

Thermal Performance

Tg: 100°C
Td: 300°C

Electrical Performance

Dk: 4.50
Df: 0.033

Industry Approvals

IPC-4101 /20
UL - File Number E41625

A11 products bring the fabricator specific thermal characteristics appropriate for use in heat sink bonding, die cavity board (direct chip attachment) and multilayer rigid-flex applications.
