P25N

Polyimide UL HB No-Flo® Specialty Prepreg

Isola offers a P25N product line of polyimide-based no flow prepreg materials for high temperature printed circuit applications.

Thermal Performance

Tg: 250°C
Td: 383°C

Electrical Performance

Dk: 3.67
Df: 0.018

Industry Approvals

IPC-4101 /42
UL - File Number E41625

These products consist of a polyimide resin system suitable for military, commercial or industrial electronic applications requiring superior performance and the utmost in thermal properties. These products utilize a polyimide and thermoplastic blend resin, fully cured without the use of Methylenedianiline (MDA). This results in a polymer with a high Tg without the characteristic difficulties of brittleness and low initial bond strength associated with traditional thermoset polyimides.
