IS680 AG

Very Low-Loss Laminate Materials

IS680 AG laminate materials exhibit exceptional electrical properties which are very stable over a broad frequency and temperature range.

Thermal Performance

Tg: 200°C
Td: 360°C

Electrical Performance

Dk: 3.00 / 3.38 / 3.45 / 3.48
Df: 0.0020 - 0.0029

Industry Approvals

IPC-4103 /17
UL - File Number E41625

IS680 AG is suitable for many of today’s commercial RF/ microwave printed circuit designs. It features a dielectric constant (Dk) that is stable between -55°C and +125°C up to W-band frequencies. In addition, IS680 AG offers an ultra-low dissipation factor (Df), making it an extremely cost-effective alternative to PTFE and other commercial microwave laminate materials in double sided applications.
